    I love the custom idiot lights and your other smart bits. Show us with the tins on.

    Thanks Alex,
    Engine was rebuilt with the Genuine James gasket kit. I'll have to check if it included valve stem seals.

    The cam chain tensioners are the big one to watch on pre 2007 engines. Brittle valve stem seals will cause some oil usage and carbon deposits. Brittle tensioner pads can destroy your engine.

    Noted Alex. Tensioner pads were not replaced. Was told they were okay, but will have them changed over the winter.

    Re: Dyna FXD rebuild

    Well, it passed the MOT
    But front brake started binding on the way home. The hotter it got the more it bound.
    New disk and pads, but original caliper.
    Will need to try bleeding the Caliper again in case there is any moisture in there.

    Anything else that could cause this?

    Thanks
    Paul

    Could possibly be too much fluid in the master cylinder, no room for expansion, or the caliper pistons might be corroded & need a good clean. Always check the stupid ( cheap) things first before spending needlessly. HTH.

    Moisture contaminated fluid (water boils off, pressurises the system and applies the brake).
