Speaking of bolts I was watching Star Trek DS9 Quark has a bunch of “ stem bolts” he always trying to pedal supposedly worth a fortune in gold pressed Latium . What the heck are thes and what are they used for?I made an interesting discovery last night . I discovered that certain shaft collars fit inside the rings on the lovejoy couplers. All I need to do is drill and tap locking screws and I’ll have a short coupling that grips the eccentric as well as the crankshaft . Saves a lot of tricky work . Plus gives the adjustment I wanted . It’s not as easy as wanted but other than testing it should work fine and be secure.
I’ll work more tonight I hav a virtual doc visit tomorrow always something almost done with estate issues .
I heated the drill chuck as hot as my little torch could get it , about 450 deg F then pushed the spindl into the chuck and smacked the handle . I haven’t tried it but this is what was said to do to install the jacobs. I’ll try a 3/8” drill later . Everything got out of order taking it out to the shop last week end so I’m re organizing today we made half a dozen 1/4” 40 TPI ME blind plugs that I needed plus I drilled and tapped some of the brass nuts so I can have lock nuts where needed. I have a bag of fiber sealing washers too . Working on a gearbox for driving the PMR research generator model now too . It’s not a very powerful generator but I YHINK I may be enough to drive a couple LED lights for the engine area.
