indian mills 1.3 mk11
 
Can anyone tell me what the conrod centres should be on an Indian Mills 1.3 Mk11, When I got the engine the conrod was bent and as near as I could measure the centres looked to be 1 1/16" so made a new rod at that, Engine ran backwards ,couldn't get it to go properly. At BDC piston looked to be partially still covering exhaust ports so made rod number 2 at 1 1/32" centres which puts piston very close to bottom edge of exhaust port. Can get it to start now but it runs rough, tempted to go even shorter but it takes me a day to hack a new rod out of solid so thought it better to see if any info out there.
Cheers
Will
