worn big end?
« on: April 15, 2019, 08:52:00 am »
Hi,is there anyway of repairing the big end on a TE1a is its a tad worn? Thinking of filling with silver solder and re drilling? Would that be ok?
Thanks

How about boring a bit bigger and soldering in a segment of brass tubing to act as a bearing, well bushing anyway?
