Title: Kingaroy Rally
Post by: Alan Cun on 20 Sep 2018 at 08:38
Hello All, The 2018 Doug Rally at Kingaroy is over. I took 2x29 models B29 and E29. Time ran out to get the B29 working correctly  so I persisted with the E29 with all starts with a push.  I also took some items of interest one of which was a crankshaft assembly made up of motor mower shafts I have built 2 of these in a veteran and my 1/2 size dougs. So watch out for some very fast TS in the future. Another item of interest was my 10 motor which will soon be mounted in a 28 inch pushie frame. I dont know why but somehow when returning it to our bus the two green original plugs which were loose fell out or maybe some low life stole them. Anyway next time tighten with a spaniad and coat with moly black grease.
My congratulations to the long distance organisers who performed a most successful rally. Sorry I will be too old and decrepid to attend the Vic rally in 2020.

regards Alan

Anyone got any photos to post ? It was most disappointing to miss a Douglas rally for the first time.

Hello Ian, I didnt take any pics but there is a memory stick available from one of the rally persons for $10. I guess a lot of the interstate members are still returning home. One outstanding part of the rally was the amount of basically as found bikes that had been ridden in the event. One entrant had the makings of a  350 EW  which he didnt have intention of making a goer but when I suggested using a 2 stroke cable operated oil pump some time ago which he hid behind a dino cover. Went like a beauty.
regards Alan

Sorry I missed the Rally as well. Would like to read a review of the event by the organisers and some photos as well. Will plan my holidays better in future.
