The Conrod!


I’ve just come back from a break for my holiday. Back at it now so hopefully there’ll be a little more progress now.

Here’s a picture of the conrod. Granted, it may not look like a conventional conrod, but the conrod is there I assure you! It’s inside that big piece of aluminium, I just have to machine it out 🙂

Currently it’s on the big lathe in Bob’s shed. The first job is to thin it down to the corect depth, to take the radius off the sides where the bar was extruded and ensure that the sides are flat and parallel.

Then it’s onto the Miller, but I’ll upload more photos at that point. I might also get back down to the airfield this weekend, to try and remove some more parts from the engine there. But the apples are falling from the tree so Sunday could be a Cider making day!!

Bob is as keen as ever to help out. It’s like having a shed fairy!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
