Shop degree wheels back in stock!

Saturday, Aug 17, 2019

People often ask me if I have shop TEE shirts for sale. I do not.
degree_wheel_colors-copy degree_wheel_blue-copy However since this is an engine shop I feel much stronger about having degree wheels for sale, as no TEE shirt has ever made an engine run better, faster, or more efficiently. The new batch of degree wheels is in and I could not be happier with the way they turned out.

First these were water jet cut from .050″ 6061 aluminum sheet (1.27mm thick) into 7″ round discs (178mm). They were then fixtured and turned in a lathe to make a crisp and true edge. After cutting the edge, they were individually deburred, and then chemically treated to even the aluminum finish. Then they were anodized in groups of colors, and then permanently laser marked. Following that each one was inspected, bagged, and placed in a hand stenciled box.

From the materials to the artwork to the finished product, many talented people helped me produce these, and I am proud to offer them for sale instead of a “shop shirt”.

The colors are very limited, the majority of these degree wheels are black. Even if you are not planning on degreeing your cams, timing your engine, or installing a magneto right now, it is a good idea to have a degree wheel for when you do need it.
It also looks good hanging on the garage wall.
This purely American made tool may help you go faster, and will last a lifetime if cared for.

Triumph 650 Grant piston rings in stock!

Saturday, Dec 09, 2017

Many people attribute ring seating problems to the brand of rings installed.

If the cause is poor cylinder preparation, faulty installation, or a bent connecting rod, the rings are sure to get the blame.

Piston rings have one of the hardest jobs in the engine, to seal the combustion chamber while removing heat from the piston.

We have used Triumph ring sets from Hastings, Total Seal, Deves, Grant, Hepolite, Goetze, Riken, JCC, and a few others. The result was almost the same with each brand…

They all did a great job when gapped correctly, carefully installed in a round bore, and were allowed to break in without any extreme circumstances.

grant_triumph_piston_rings

We are proud to announce that we now have Grant piston rings in stock for the Triumph 650. This set consists of a torsional twist (inner bevel) top and second ring, with a one piece cast oil ring. They are designed to break in quickly and give good service life.

These cast iron rings are made in California as they have been since the company was founded in the 1920′s in a house in Los Angeles. Grant rings have won races on drag strips, Bonneville Salt flats, stock car, and countless other events.

Franz and Grubb has used Grant rings with great success and is happy to supply this excellent American made ring set.

SHOP CLOSED FOR BONNEVILLE SPEED WEEK

Thursday, Aug 10, 2017

The pre unit engine I built for racing set a record last year it’s first time out. This year we are going to see if it will go faster. That is why the shop will be closed during Speed Week to support and tune our race engine at Bonneville. The shop will open again on Tuesday the 22th of August. Sorry for the inconvenience but I’m sure all gearheads will understand. Dan
