The tech sessions are led my Tim Engel and Mike Griese The attention to detail is amazing. The use of the minimal amount of sealants used. Instead of a bead sealant that gets squeezed out into a mirco thin layer sandwiched between mating surfaces they use paint brushes and blotter up the excess on the surfaces before assembly as that is all that is left over from a bead of sealant anyway. It covered the design theory of the 900 series engine, failure points, mistakes to be avoided and the use of custom the made alignment and seating tools. Of the type destroyed by Fedex while on loan to Jim Knowles our southern most LOON as I refer to him.Cal, I'm interested is such "engine refresher tech session". I'm about to be pulling apart and rebuilding my 910, the more knowledge the better always.
Its weird as you are the 2nd person yesterday to mention needing a 900 series engine tech session. The 1st was from my next door neighbor who does not even have an Esprit. Apparently he wants to learn about the Esprit engine to help out his buddy back home who I think is a gulf war vet with some sort of physical disability. I'm led to believe his buddy is a good guy but not very good mechanically. My neighbor keeps saying "I'll probably have to go back home and help him fix his engine" as the car is just sitting there after he blew up his engine. "He can barely keep his Buell running much less an Esprit." My neighbor said he went as far as lending him a trailer that he keeps at his moms house so he could pick up the Esprit from the side of the road and get it home where it has just been sitting. So I guess we will just have to help out the Gulf war vet with the disability get his car back on the road.
