Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

Got the filler and a bit of paint on the donor bracket / pattern. Took it to the foundry late last week for them to have a look at and give there opinion. He is going to have a go at it and come back to me..... Still not the easiest part to cast, we think it was made with a 2 part pattern ( I dont w...

Re: FVP5959

Do you think the block was broken due to rust or has the engine been dropped at some point?

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

Hugz, Is it ok if I put some filler on the bracket you sent me? I took it down to the foundry to have a chat... It is not an easy casting to do, it can be done but will need a bit of work on the part first. Even if it was a good working part it would need the work. I will try and catch you on Skype ...

Re: SC oddity

That's kind of interesting!
I have no idea.
Wouldn't that need a longer crank?

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

I hope you don't measure your D1*K in the same way Mr Bits! :shock: I guess your meaning the part is 14.8 cm OR 148 mm 14.8 mm is only 0.5826772" where as 14.8 cm is 5.826772" same as 148 mm is 5.826772" Ok now we have that sorted How big is the arrow on the end? length and height. I ...

Re: New member and down a nut

It is NOT a 7/32 bsf
A 7/32 bsf is 28tpi where as the adjuster is 40tpi
I think it is their own thread.

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

Got a box today from Hugo, IMG_2782.JPG It looks to be sand cast! How long is the broken part supposed to be, and the size of the hook on the end? I think this might work with the use of a core for the hook part and cast in 2 parts. Once Ive made the replacement broken part I will have a better idea...

Re: New member and down a nut

^^^I would say that would be your best bet if you want a nut.

I've just had a look through my book "Guide to would screw threads" and there is nothing even close to the size.

What I did work out is that is 40TPI . I just cant see it well enough to work out if it is 55deg or 60deg.

Re: 8 COM Spark Plugs

Nudge, I would say that that is too flimsy to find TDC, i borrowed something similar to do my Marston timing and it was a M10 bolt threaded through the nut part of the plug. I would have to agree 100% with what you are saying. But when I was having a look it was the only thing I had with an 18mm th...

Re: 8 COM Spark Plugs

Is this what you are talking about? Capture5.JPG This is the 8COM that I cooked to get apart. It did work after I cooked it, but I wanted something to find top dead center. :roll: WIN_20180214_21_51_50_Pro.jpg WIN_20180214_21_52_24_Pro.jpg WIN_20180214_21_52_56_Pro.jpg WIN_20180214_21_53_08_Pro.jpg
