 :laughing4:....ja it was early. I would suggest you use EN24 for the pin. I believe you can get in two states...one hard and one that is very tough. en24 is an axle steel.

Good going. The only problem I had with my HP2 motor was timing the valves. I used the BMW manual for reference but found that the pictures and the description conflict, so go with the description and it will be a breeze.

Thanks mate. I lined up all the marks an the gears etc. Also checked position of the counterweight at right side firing. The cam sprockets tab facing downwards on both sprocket. Right side firing and left on overlap.........hold thumbs I got it right.

Sounds good, but if both tabs are down then cam's will both be the same? Shouldn't right side cam tab be down and left cam tab up? Can't remember will check later. I did right cam tab down then turned motor 360 deg. and did same on left cam.

I actually took note of that before stripping off. Took some pics too. Left side is firing with tab up and overlap tab down.
