Re: RUGBY HUB-Caps.

Hello Jo-Olav ,

Yes I still own the Rugby .

In July 2018 , I had to take the engine out because of really bad compression test and very low oilpressure at all. As we got really into the engine we found out,
bad Pistons ,
bad Valves - 4 of the 6 Exhaust were burned,
the intake valves - fairly god,
Bearings bad , broken in peaces,
Camshaft - the chrome bearing on 2 bearings where gone,
the crankshaft was ok ok but needed attention.

So we decided to take the cabin of the frame , and take the engine out backwards , othgerwise the whole fender had to be removed...

The cabin construktion wood was also bad and had to be replaced .....
I haven´t done much with the Rugby in the past because of other matters and Family stuff.


As I can see you´re from norway. Were are you living ? I still have friends in Aurskog -Höland kommun . Maybe you could send me an email or tlf number , so we could talk ???

I will be glad to here from you.


cheers Thorsten
