  1. This was about four cars in front of me yesterday, as luck would have it the traffic lights changed just in time for me to jump out and get a quick snap.. It's not everyday you see this sort of thing on the road A closer up..
  2. Model T Ford , go cart

    A man of many skills, top work there Neil
  3. New Additions

    That's a nice haul Paul, they will fit in well with your collection..
  4. Some foul photos..

    Cool photo's Norm, I was lucky enough to watch moorhens hatch a few years ago.. From hatching to in the water in under 10 mins! Amazing to watch.. Very chilled
  5. Having A Change In The Shed

    That's a very nice lathe upgrade Chris, the Myford will serve you well..
  6. The bearing holder was drilled and a tapped so the two bit's could be bolted together.. A clean up on the lather later and the bearing was pressed in.. I couldn't of been happier with the fit of the bearing Fitted.. Just out of view behind the holder is a couple of tack welds just to hold the holder in the right place.. and yes the spocket is free to move at the moment as I don't know quite how far up/down the shaft it needs to go. Now onto the fun part.. Getting the 90'd drive in the right place.. Which is where the bit of angle that is bolted to the drive will come in handy. If you look behind the air filter you can just see 3 more bit's bolted to the drive case.. The go up and get clamped to a couple of bit's of box.. This will hold things steady and give me enough adjustment to adjust it's postition. But before I square the drive up I need to make the last bit of the drive puzzle and fit a sprocket and bearing to the hollow shaft that's coming out of the drive.. That should keep me busy tomorrow
  7. Where were we? Oh yes, making a bearing holder.. Some more turning later and half of the bearing holder was just the right size, a nice tight fit that will need gentle press pressure to push it in. No idea why these photo's are being turned sideways when I upload them, but anyway here's half the bearing holder and a blank other half. Both sides done. The four holes in each half are there so the bearing can be punched back out the holder should needs be.. Time to fit the bearing... Almost.. As the holder will have to be taken on and off MadTrax many many times, and a bit of drilling and grinding going on, rather than fit the bearing and risk it getting full of nasty stuff I made.... This fake bearing With a little bit of trimming to the inside half of the bearing holder a test fit was in order.. It's rather tight on one of the engine mounts, but it fit's Looks like the sprockets can be made to line up Now the big one... Will the shaft from the transfer box to the front fit without hitting anything and how tight will the UJ angles be? It fit's and the UJ angles are well under 33'degrees, if I remember right the rear UJ angle is about 12'D and the front is a tad over 20.. Much better than it used to be It's tight but there is plenty of clearance
  8. Morning all, time for a long overdue update. To try and keep this in some sort of time order we had best start with a video..
  9. A Good Day Out.

    Great photo's Norm, thanks for posting them. The museum looks good, a nice selection of machines.. I've alway wanted to go and see the Falkirk Wheel, amazing engineering!
  10. Sorry for the late reply Koen.. The 850 engine I understand does bolt to a rear wheel drive gearbox, but the wiring would be a total nightmare!
  11. De' Ja' Vu

    That's handy to know should I need to get new gearbox seals Nice work Chris, the speed your going your have the Raider finished in a month or so
  12. Ride-on Tractor lift

    That's a cool find Chris, can it lift a whole WH off the ground?
  13. Wee tractor working 2018 new garden

    It's good to see the little Gutbrod being worked, a great view too..
  14. Morning all, a small update for ya.. I have been mostly spending a lot of time at the lathe turning down this, boring out that, and trueing up the other. Not that many photo's but this was quite interesting to make out of two parts and a bit of welding. It's not quite finished in the photo, only a bit of tidying to do.. A bored out sprocket is a nice tight fit on the shaft. Not the fun part, making the 90'd drive thingy fit in not much space.. It's in there somewhere! This view might help to see what's going on. The plan was to fit this sprocket to the shaft that comes from the Honda gearbox.. And put this bearing at the end to hold things steady.. The trouble is, not enough space, the drive shaft to the front takes up a fair bit of space too! Soooo... The plan now is to mount this bigger bearing a lot closer to the gearbox case and fit the sprocket on the end only much more forward than it was.. Of course I don't have a bearing holder for the bigger bearing! So a bit of thick steel slicing.. Cut's well for a £10 power saw An almost flat plate. Flat and mostly bored out.. And that's about as far as I've got at the moment, all this making "one of" parts does take it's time.. But where would be the fun if I just bought everything and bolted it on?
  15. Rural Past Times, August 11/12

    Thanks Chris, I've got mine.. Both of them! I don't have anything to take at the mo, but I do have a plan
