Thank you so much for the info and links.

I've found it very cost prohibitive to buy the connectors new, the ones for the ECU are like 50.00 each. I do what you do. Buy a old cheap harness and rob all the connectors. Good way to keep the factory wire colors as well. I have balls of old harness wire. Another company to look at for AMP connectors and ends is EagleDay AMP Connectors/Terminals Check them out.


They are bicycle Hydraulic hose frame braze-ons I get all of my bicycles supplies from Nova Cycle Supply HYDRO BRAKE CABLE GUIDE/ ZIP :: SMALL PARTS :: BRAZON/SMALL PARTS :: Nova Cycles Supply Inc.

It seems that most of my pictures are no longer working. My image shack account is still good and all of my pics are still there. Does anyone how to fix the picture links or how I can make the pictures available again? It's a bummer to see them all gone. Hopefully someone can help me get these thread pictures working again

Well, Dont know what to do about the missing picture problem.

So Ill just add some new stuff.

Not much building lately, been doing more research on head porting and combustion chamber shapes. I feel the limit of 103 is not a limit, I just need to get more creative.

A friend I met on this forum was kind enough to offer up his flow bench for my testing. I have many types of Ducati heads and intake ideas we were testing. We plan on doing a full head flow report sometime in the future. We both just need to find some time. Thanks again for the help :)

So I took my JPrecission head and flow tested it with a few intake concepts.

This was a straight manifold and curved horn.



This is a slightly curved manifold with straight stacks



Here is my new Puppy we got that is keeping me busy. He is an 11 week old Border Terrior



I made some taper bore, 48-43mm throttle bodies

So here is some more fun.

I cast up the ports and head cavities of a EVO 1100 head to scan into the computer and do CFD analysis on it for my Sport Classic Project bike.



But while I am waiting for the scan to come back, I have been drawing and testing new port ideas in the CFD software.



Here are some cut plots and streamlines of various test I am doing.








Some good info I am learning with this tool

This is a real problem because it's very rare to see someone with your talents and skill sets go through an engine in this fashion. Lots to be learned and shared and the pictures are essential.

I used to run several large forums and what I found is that the smartest manner to handle images is to allow uploading them to the forum. This way they are never dependent on 3rd party solutions.

What tends to happen is that over the span of years pictures disappear leaving holes in the threads. This is really cheezy for people coming in at later dates. I found that banning remote URL pictures and enforcing direct attachment was the way to fly. No holes, no missing pics, come back 10 years later and they are still there :smile2:

Ya, I used to do that, but I soon filled up my album and it was suggested I use image shack.
If you hit the paper clip button when posting it will allow you to directly upload the image to the post.

It doesn't look as good as in-line pictures (see test here http://www.ducati.ms/forums/6-test-forum/563362-another-image-test.html#post5591026) but they will stay forever.

There is usually an option for the site admin to enable called 'allow in-line images' and that would fix it properly.

It is a shame, your pictures and posts are awesome and probably are inspiring others :)

On images...

Lost images don't seem to be limited to image shack. Here's a link to an issue with photobucket. Jeff, maybe you can contact the Administrator who posted the below and ask him how you might restore your pics. Your thread is reference material gold and it would be a crying shame if we couldn't have it in its entirety.

Keep up the great info. Love your work.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: I approached the Admin guy myself. Here's what he said.

"Hi there,

If there is an issue with images appearing on the thread, please create a NEW thread in this area (http://www.ducati.ms/forums/36-ducat...ck-suggestion/) with as many details as to what the issue is (inluding links to threads/posts where the issue is taking place).

The dedicated section I provided you a link to is constantly monitored by our tech support team to help with fixing issues related to using our site.

Yung"

Will leave it with you.
