Huge Scissors!


Getting an accurate reading from the press proved difficult, any movement was a combination of everything. All the bending moments of the long bolts, give in the jack and twist of the assembly. Bob wrote off that method and we moved onto plan B.

Plan B. Often this is the most successful of all plans, I do wonder sometimes why anyone bothers with plan A? Would NASB have been more successful than NASA?

Anyway, plan B. Bob made a special tool acting like huge Scissors. In order to twist the flywheels around the crank pin, two mandrels will be fitted into the existing holes opposite the crank pin. The tool inserted between the wheels locate on the two mandrels. When opened or closed using the thread and nuts, the scissors will twist the wheels.

There’s plenty of leverage so it ought to work!

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!
