Changing gear(box).


Now I have a mockup engine, I can experiment with different lean angles to see what looks best. I can also measure the height to see what sort of space in the frame I need. (80cm tall at it’s highest!).

The gearbox from the Toyota is next to the engine in the photo, and they don’t look too bad together. A fluid flywheel, cvt and differential would make for an interesting transmission, but unfortunately the flywheel rotates the other way on the car which adds complications.

A revised plan is to make a 2 speed chain box instead. It needs to be worked out and drawn up, but I think it’s time to change gearbox…. hmm…

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!
