It’s in!


A good start to the day with the drive side shaft pressed in. The oven performed well with the shelf just about taking the weight. Out with the hot wheel and frozen shaft for a one shot action on the press.

Bob was there with his square, giving the final nudge before pressing away. The shaft went in without any trouble, you can just see the last bit of frost melting away as the heat transfers from the wheel.

When it cooled down we checked around with a set of V blocks and it seems to have gone in straight. Just a case now of repeating for the timing side.

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!
