Exaust manifold , roughing and finishing
You are doing very nice work. I enjoy seeing how you set the parts up for machining.
What CAm are you using? I also would like to know what CNC comand you have on your Milling machine. Is it Mach3?
You are making a fast progress.
I used old Artcam and Mach3
the first phase of the intake manifold
The second phase of the intake manifold , i glued the manifold on a wood
base and took the references on the central hole ,drilled in the first phase
You can see a small displacement between the first and second phase.
I corrected the profile with file .
The challenge is to make internal holes and close them with welded aluminum caps ...
The piston rings
Piston ring grinding
Flange grinding for exhaust and intake manifold
To get the 4 flanges all on the same plane without flatness errors, I mounted a 12,000 rpm spindle motor on the milling machine and with the grinding wheel I finished the planes
Great job, you are making fast progress.
At this pace, we will see it running pretty soon.
the water pump
Finally the engine is running
With help of my friend Iader we have fine-tuned the timing and carburetion
I used a small Rc model carburetor which , they told me , was more reliable than a self-built carburetor
A beautiful display & great runner!
Love it. Great work.
Very well done. Congratulations. I especially like the low idle in the first part of the video. Sounds great.
I can't believe haw fast you completed a fantastic project as this. I really enjoyed you post of the build.
