If you are using a ipad to post, I also could not post more than one pic at a time. I downloaded the hmem app and have no problems posting multiple pics now. It may also be used with phones this way, though I have not tried it.
Hi CogsyLooking great Dave. Can you explain how you went about drilling the deep holes? (I want to copy your successful procedure)
I made a big mess with imperial to metric conversion on two engines. With the Howell V-4 ,I am not gambling too much. So far so good.Thanks for the explanation, I'll file the info away for when I need to do mine.
I'm using imperial bearings, seals and fasteners for this build. It meant buying some imperial tooling but I didn't want to risk a conversion error or some other complication coming up, especially since this project is already a bit complex for me! I still need to source the seals but it'll be a while before I need them.
Dirk Tollenar is the guy to contact. His email address is DTollenaar@SBCGlobal.net.Hello friends
Where is possible to buy castings for PEEWEE engine?
I sent message to Mr Tollenaar /he is probably casting producer/ but no answer.
were you going to make it one piece or composite like Steve Hucks 1.5 demon v8 crank?
Not sorted it's laying on the bench where I chucked it, I'm going back to work again tomorrow in Malaysia, so am spending the day with my son, when I've calmed down a bit I will have a look at it again, I may try the one piece crank, I just don't think my little Sherline will handle it, I will get it sorted, thanks for your comment and hopefully your right, could be a quick job and I might get to look at it next week.I just had a thought Dave (dangerous, I know) but aren't drill shanks soft? At least on the larger drill bits I believe they leave the shanks soft and only harden the cutting portion. I know I've turned down the shanks of reamers with no problems as they're made the same way.
You've probably got it all sorted by now anyway.
Thanks for the comment Steve, I would love to have a go at a one piece crank I just don't see the little Sherline lathe handling it, if I can't fix what I've got I will give it a go, thank again.Both my crankshafts are one piece. I tried to make a multi-piece but I didn't like the way it turned out. Also my Peewee crankshaft is one piece. I would recommend the single piece crankshaft.
