I spent a couple hours welding today. This kicker cover is for a 37 we are doing. Check out how the boss that the clutch sleeve sits in does not have a relief for the 39 and later style throw out bearing.
This thing was cracked out pretty badly. I was plunging into it with an endmill and a huge piece just fell out of it. YOu can see the discoloration in this pic. I wonder how long it was cracked?
HEre it is all welded up and ready for machining. There are a few spots that I need to add more filler at, but I ran out of rod, so it will have to wait till monday.
I decided to switch gears for a little bit, and pulled out a 28 henderson motor that I have to finish up. This thing is going to be choice. Carl Vandre showed me how to do the machine work on the bottom and top end. I had special pistons made for it, but they were the wrong ones, so I had to have them re made! I love my job
I think about Carl every day, he was such a great friend and positive influence in my life. I am a better person because of him. I am going to finish this thing up this week, then I can move onto a 29 kj motor that has all of the hard work done. Please leave comments and let me know if you want to read henderson posts, or if you would like this site to remain hd. Thanks and have a nice night.
