    1st motion shaft needle bearing

    I wonder if filling it with grease and smartly whacking an 18 mm shaft in will shift it as a bushing?
  2. It's been rough in Vegas this week as well. We've had several non sunny days with falling moisture a few times . Hard to keep the car clean....

    Chassis stiffening

    You can substantially improve the chassis stiffness by seam welding all the flanges to replace/augment the spot welds.

    Now there's lightening and lightening

    That looks like something I would do to shed an ounce LOL

    Liners in 6 cyl blocks

    I wasn't aware of ANY six blocks having liners? At least not any US spec blocks.

    Project Binky 21

    I'm just glad they don't overcomplicate things LOL Happy New Year!
  7. Several of those LOL. Only use them on the Jags however. In all these years I've found nothing better for spinners ;-)
  8. I LOVE my hammers. I have a similar count but only one body hammer. I really want a pegboard hanging wall for them but don't have a space. I use ball-peens and deadblow plastic mallets most times in the garage. LOL
  9. I was so pleased with the Nilos seals I've never explored this any further. It's intriguing though as I have a shelf full of seal catalogs. I can understand the advantages of a nice lip seal in the UK environment. And I'd expect any modern lip seal to be happy with the relatively low RPM's Nick calculates... John, this is a ridiculously pricy seal at the first link I found. Did you hit up your local bearing supply house? Second one is a supplier I use daily so if you want I could get you a handful and ship them ...First one delivers before Christmas however LOL https://www.amazon.com/CR-Seals-SKF-13612-Nitrile/dp/B07D79DDLZ https://www.motionindustries.com/productDetail.jsp?sku=01297794

    How to measure a Cam in the Hand

    I've only ever done UK cams and they were always at .010, I know but have not experienced US cams are AT .050. dId you read the duration at .101 lift? I've a dozen racing cams here so I'm tempted to throw one in the lathe . Did I read correctly your's is a Newman? Have none of those sadly, What was the quoted duration and lift, just for comparisons...

    How to measure a Cam in the Hand

    Have you allowed for the quoted lash, the gap between lifter and cam? Thoat makes the opening later affecting your readings perhaps? Ermmm, never mind...

    Re positioning a 6 pot

    My recollection is the Spittys sit the engine slightly lower that the GT6 bits and that's what I've used in my racer. My head sit's a mm or so from the unmodified bulkhead as the rules require.
  13. I'd say he worked that magnificent little CNC machine to it's limits! I wish I had such skills as exhibeted. I gotta think though that they'd have gotten off cheaper in the end by simply rallying a brand new Bentley or roller. LOL Never can have too many clamps for a mill or pillar drill. A couple times I was seriously concerned for his fingers.....

    Estate car for sale

    Remeber the 70's era Volvo wagon with a large no-frame glass rear window? I still lust for one....
