Dave, Patrik is build a Vincent...

Air freight from Australia, or anywhere else in the near solar system, is the least of his financial worries...!

Buying a new twin crank/flywheel with rods from Vincent Owners Club's Spares company in UK would cost me 2,836 GBP incl. European VAT. Shipping by truck to Sweden not included.
I paid 2,300 AUD for the Terry Prince crank+rods which is about 1,200 GBP. Air freight is 250 AUD or 127 GBP. I will need to pay import tax and VAT when the parts arrive to Sweden but the total cost will actually be far less then buying in Europe.

No VAT if, repeat, if you live out of Europe :!:

Well you always have to pay VAT wherever you source from. If buying within EU I pay VAT directly to the seller. If buying from outside of EU I do not pay VAT to the seller but I pay the VAT when entering to goods into EU.

Anyhow I have now some result of the paint removal exercise. I bought a gel type of paint removal available here in Scandinavia. Contains 15-30% Dimethyl Sulfoxide and 1% Cocoalkylaminetoxilat. Applied it with a brush on a cover to test. After 24 hrs no visible change. So I thought this was a dead end. But after about three days laying in open air on the floor of the garage the kick start cover looked like below. The paint is like a soft skin that I now can just peel off. I didn't expect it to be that easy. Maybe on the cylinders and heads where the surface is more rough it will be more difficult.

One trick with paint stripper is to cover it with aluminum foil, it helps keep the vapors in. Really speeds up the process.

Also sand / scuff / wire brush the surface first, it gives the solvents a 'way in' to the paint.

Yes I didn't mention that option. In this case not easily applicable. I think.

Finally the crank has arrived in Sweden! :D
Will need to go to the customs shortly to pay VAT and other costs before I can lay my hands on it.

Thanks for the tips about the paint stripping. Tested brushing with hot water and most of the paint is now gone on the kick cover. I have now also wrapped the covers in food wrap film.
I've also bought a paint stripper called POR15 which I guess is stronger than the one I'm using now. Anyone who has tested POR15 on aluminium (or aluminum as some of you call it)?

The 100 mm looks just like my 102, must be out of the same machine shop.
They are Skookum!

Now, that is a word I havent heard since moving to NZ 11 years ago!

I bet it conjures up more of a vision of casinos now for most, tho.

The Scandinavian Rally only 2 weeks away. :?

The engine still in pieces. I have stripped all paint except on the head and cylinder fins. Will make a final try this evening with the POR15. I have given up the idea of painting the engine now and will leave that for the winter. I'm still waiting for one part: the oil seal carrier ET236. But according to the parcel tracking it arrived to Sweden this afternoon so hopefully I will get it tomorrow. Also tomorrow a work colleague of mine will help me machine the surface where the ET236 will sit on the drive side of the crankcase as it is not flat enough. Plus we will extend the thread in the same crank case half for the modified camplate spindle I got from Neville Higgins.

During the last week I have not done much as I've been waiting for the last parts to arrive. In a moment of hubris I contacted Bob Newby asking about his 30mm primary belt drive and clutch kit. He happend to have one ready for another customer who was not in a hurry so I was able to purchase that one. Arrived yesterday! Looks nice I think.

The coming week will tell whether I will go by bike or car to the Rally.

Hi Glen,
Yes it is most probably the same machine shop as both were supplied by Terry Prince of Oz.

Skookum is a word I've never heard before. I hope it has a positive meaning.
