Shed faries…

Standard

The shed faries have been busy while I’ve been in London this week. Bob has finished the second flywheel and it’s really starting to look like a big end. A BIG end!

It’s just a mock up at the moment, nothing has been pressed in. But you get a good general impression. The next step is to line bore the main journals and crank pin hole. That’s a fair job in itself, the tracing paper will come out again for that.

We’ll try the faceplate to start with, but it’s a heavy weight to mount and spin eccentricly. Counter weights will definitely be required. For now though it’s worth admiring progress, the steel is very tough and Bob’s taken the job forward well. Thanks Sir!

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!
