Title: Little Demon valve cages
Post by: awJCKDup on June 07, 2018, 09:56:43 PM
Hey Steve, Doc, anyone?????  Page 29 of the Demon plans show the valves, cages, push rods made from drill rod, but looking at pics of the Steve and Docs build, they look like they are bronze or brass. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Also I downloaded some time ago the Photobucket fix for chrome, but now I can no longer see the pics in Steve's build, anyone else have this problem?
thanks
John

Valve cages and retainers are brass
Valves are drill rod
push rods are drill rod, drill blank, or spring wire.

All the photos should be visible without the fix. Photo Bucket has come to there senses.

I can relate to the plugging away took me around 4 or 5 years of squeezing in shop time during the winter months to get mine done.
 I did use brass for the cages, 0-1 drill rod for the valves and push rods I used welding rod material.
