Two flywheels


The flywheels are completed, ready for pressing to complete the bottom end. Less can be said for the other parts! The crankshafts and crankpin will need a carrier making, so they can be turned between centres. A little job to do in order to start a bigger job!

The blued areas on the flywheels is where they have been relieved to allow the bearing cage to spin, when everything else is pressed together. The inner sleeve for the main bearing wasn’t available oversized, so the wheels needed modifying. At least we thought of it now and not when it all went together!!

They certainly look the part. Bob has done a cracking job.
