Drilling the oilway


Now everything has cooled down, Bob finished drilling the oilway in the timing shaft. The shaft itself was drilled through in the lathe when it was built, as was the flywheel on the Mill.

With the two now pressed together it’s simply a case of drilling through the pilot hole in the flywheel into the shaft, to pick up the hole along the axis. That completed and checked out with an airline, it’s finished!

Now we just have to complete the assembly and press in the crankpin.

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!
