Right then, let the fun begin. I like to work from castings, don`t know why I just do, so with this in mind I decided to make the parts I felt should have been in a complete set of castings. With this in mind I thought I would start with the sideshaft perch brackets.
Blocks of steel for brackets
Blocks machined square and to required size
Excess cut out on the bandsaw
Step milled to size
Recess for cap machined
Cap block machined to fit main part
Drilled and tapped for screws
Ready for the lathe
Centred in lathe ready to cut first face and bore
First face done and bored to size
cap screw faces machined
Bracket mounting holes drilled and marked out and cut to lines of finished size
And test fit to the engine
I will tidy them up a little more with a file to make them look a little more like castings. Well thats a start anyway.
