    Looking for old Popular Science LTD 465 Hyper cycle article

    We have a winner. Well, actually 2 of them. The article in Popular Science, Oct. 1962, pg 112, was not the article I was looking for. The one in Popular Mechanics, June, 1963, pg 110 was the one I was thinking of. Thank you. Also a big thanks to GR for reminding me about that Spray Modeling...

    Looking for old Popular Science LTD 465 Hyper cycle article

    Hey ... long time no see. I'm trying to give a young Air Force Captain, and fellow Steel Soldier, a hand with a thesis he is writing on the hyper-cycle multi-fuel engine. I know that either Popular Science, Popular Mechanics or Mechanics Illustrated did a pretty big article on the 465LTD when...

    New O rings on HH ... truck no start.

    I checked the clearance between the shut off lever and the retainer when cold and got a tight .010. Pulled it apart and removed .010. Now, when cold I have .020 clearance. It started right up, I let it run to get to operating temp and rechecked the clearance ... it closed up to about .016...

    New O rings on HH ... truck no start.

    BINGO ... maybe. I KNOW the lever is free when its cold. I checked that a MILLION times. BUT ... I Let it warm up and pulled the cover. The lever is "less free" and almost binding when the engine is hot. I remember from the TM that there is a spec clearance between the shaft and that...

    New O rings on HH ... truck no start.

    Its now about 2 hours later. I let the truck cool down, armed myself with tools, brake clean and a step ladder and had my wife drive me back to try it. Of course, its raining. ... and ... it started right up just like it always did and settled down to a nice 850 rpm idle like none of this...

    New O rings on HH ... truck no start.

    Well, I just got home from a 4 mile walk. The engine starts great. Holds an idle about 850 just where it always ran. Once it reaches temp, it begins to hunt at idle ...200 to about 900 rpm. Turn it off, let it cool ... its starts great and hunts as it warms up. Since it never died while...

    Not yet. Work and other stuff happened. I did start it cold yesterday. Fired right up. I ran it for a while and everything seemed OK. I'm back on it tomorrow. (Tuesday)

    New O rings on HH ... truck no start.

    The timing is correct. I ordered a new HH from CHINA last Friday. I was figuring I'd see it by the end of the month but it was waiting for me when I got home from work. 6 day shipping and no charge. anyoldways ... I'm getting pretty good at pulling the HH out. I ripped out the old and...

    New O rings on HH ... truck no start.

    Actually ... we're just killing time until the parts (i.e., new HH) arrive. I will be checking the timing tomorrow in the AM when its a bit cooler, but that's about all I can do for now. soanyoldways, as for when humankind was capable or producing the precision machinery required to build...

    You also should consider finding or building a machine to test the HH when its rebuilt. Such a machine will have to provide fuel at the proper rate and pressure, spin the shaft AND move it up and down and, finally, measure the output pressure and volume at 6 ports.I have spent some time at a...

    New O rings on HH ... truck no start.

    New News ... I just came back from the autoparts store with a couple cans of Brake Clean. The engine will start and run as long as I spray BC into the intake. When I stop spraying, the engine will continue running for a bit and then die. If I pull out the hand throttle while cranking it...
