          What was your reason for machining the fins? Remove damage?

                Probably in the sludge trap in the crank. Not much in the was of selection for cams Rich Maud or you go to Germany the problem is the motor is at the end of its development at that point what people in the 80's fitted to their Guzzis to hot them up will actually de-tune this one.

                  Yeh...In the absence of anything usefull coming from me this P.M.

                  I will say ... std cams (for this model will do) get 'em nitrided... run slight advance on inlet....slight retard on Ex. 3-5 degrees is good... have Loud's Engine guy ..Ray .. Have a quick look at cam bearing clearances...too ..if you can...

                  Use mineral oil...and just change more often... as needs must.

                  Look to 'guzzi endurance racer' interesting ...light flywheel/clutch/full balance....just the usual stuff ---for a vee donk....

                  have a world of fun.. on this thing....;-)

                  use this general advise with diligence and caution.....you may find more fun -than you can handle...

                    I did up a guzzi some years ago.
                    It was a Mille GT which is similar spec to a California. By the time I finished with it, it was very different. 251kg down to 185kg. Top 160km per hr to 220km.
                    And really handled well.
                    This will be all of that and another 30hp and real tyres.

                            What media did you use on the cases?
                            I like that finish... very nice.

                              Hydroblasted. Which is a water jet impregnated with fine glass beads and a couple of chemicals.

                                Hmmmm cordless driver, sockets and hex bits lying around, loctite master gasket and a hammer ....

                                However ... I see no barked knuckles, blood spots or puddles or trails leading to the bathroom.
                                I have found in the past mr 'nutz, that any of the work I do for myself or family doesn't finish right until there has been a blood sacrifice of some description
