Very nice on all things done ... VERY NICE !Not read it ? ... whats the price on this 22mm kit ?
I have been in contact with Tony and right now he has the DYI kit available for 110 pounds + shipping. If you want you can send him your parts and he can do the work as shown above but the cost goes up to $180 pounds + shipping each way. He does have the springs available but not sure of the cost. It could be the 180 pound cost includes the spring, the 110 pound does not. I think I have all that straight bases off our messages back and forth.
Got with Tony last week and my kit is either on its way or will be after the Christmas holiday. I went ahead and bought my spring from Tony, that way itís all here at the same time. Tony likes to use STP for lube on the seal, O ring and top hat. I mentioned using ultimox instead but he said the 22mm kit tends to detonate krytox/ultimox and finish line grease. I think Iíll try the STP just for kicks. Looking at the awesome consistency of your chronograph numbers, detonating does not seem to be an issue. Great write up Steve. Canít wait to install mine!
Krytox and Ultimox will detonate in 22mm set up, the reason is the pressure generated is super high, keep that in mind and go sparingly with what ever you use. I prefer STP as it gives the lowest friction set up and it lasts a decent amount of time, and you only need a drop 22mm can generate 1600+psi, 21mm 1700+ 20mm 1800+
Yep the blue bottled one, a smear round the O ring, work the piston back and forth, do NOT withdraw it as that will force lube in front of the piston seal, just build and test. You can feel the the friction just ease away with STP, often they go that smooth you feel they are not sealing.
