Thanks Raul, I's havin' a blast with this here blower. Can't wait to be paintin'

it, and comin' up with some kinda belt fer it B) ........speakin' of paint, methinks

ol' SKWIRLY seen yer Raptor in it's green skin, and he be tryin' to talk me into

stayin' in his green skin, too.

ascoopforSKEIRLY-vi.jpg

Came home from a gruelling 5k and ol' SKWIRLLY weres jabbering 'bout him

needing a scoop fer dat blower, so... Started out with a green cap ofr'n a

green felt tip marker, but trashed it in the fabbing processso, so grabbed me

a poiple one and it all worked out.

assembly sittin' comfy likes whiles the 'weld' sets up.

distributordriveplate-vi.jpg

Turned my tension to lower parts of the 4banger. Coverem up plate fer where

the distributor/magneto gonna be poppin' out the blockage. Just cuttin' thin

pieces of sprue and a li'l disc of styreene, dump a buncha goo on the plate

and add the pieces. Hopefuellie paint will help hide the gooeyness :blink:

more4bangerparts-vi.jpg

Added distributor/mag shaft housing to das plate, and had to

cut up one my credit cards to seal the bottom of the shaft.

Ol' SLWKIRLY's 4banger caint wait fer to get mo' parts on 'im.

CB,

It looks like that little 4 banger is almost ready to ignite in a foray of sights (if she comes apart) and sounds (if she doesn't) only previously heard by the likes of people like Nicolas Cugnot, Gottlieb Daimler, Louis Renault, Henry Ford and Karl Benz! :lol:

closemupofthe4b-vi.jpg

Make sure that you're wearing safety glasses and a flack jacket when you fire that rascal up for the first time!! :lol:

Yeah, Raul. Thought crossed my mind once or twiced bout how cool 'twoulda been to fab this here 4 banger up outa brass & glo-plugs, etc :) , but das plastic is doing me just fine. Methinks ol' SKWIRLY kinda had some idea 'bout his 4banger doin' some serious bangin', so he suggested we keep it as far away from the driver as possible :blink: ---dat's why it's so waaaaaay back there :P

Howdy dudes :) .......good day at the bench fabbin' up more parts fer the

SLWKIRL's 4banger

Generatorwork-vi.jpg

Getting a little intense here :P with all the pulleys fer the blower & the generator

(don't really know if'n a generator is actually needed, but SKWIRLY wanted one)

Looked thru a couple parts boxes and used two outer front wheel/tire halves from

the Lindy 25T for fabbin' up the big generator pulley, and wacked out another

one of dem little ol' hex nuts to secures it on the shaft.

Generatorposition-vi.jpg

Bit of a tight fit, but did manage to squeeze dat big ol' generator in

between the block and them tubers.

liningupblowerpulley-vi.jpg

Whiles them generator parts weres setting up, turned me tensions to

lining up the pulley fer the blower, and started fabbin' another pulley up.

blowershaftgetsfins-vi.jpg

Since dat pulley gonna be waaaaay out there, had to reinforce the shaft housing,

so wacked out some gussets and welded 'em up.

blowerpulleypartsinhand-vi.jpg

Cleaned up the welds a bits and got to finishin' fabbin' the blower pulley.

blowerpulleyassembledonshaft-vi.jpg

Got pulley on the shaft, but it aint secured, so ..........

anothernutforSWKIRLY-vi.jpg

naturlly, fabbed up another nut fer the SKWIRL.

pulleyissecure-vi.jpg

And thar she be, more like a bolt......... :huh: whatever, it's a hex headed pulley holder-on-er

and it works fer me & the SKWILRY dude.

Looking great so far!!!

I just took apart our old printer and it had a nifty cogged belt to run the ink jets side to side.

Didn't see if you are looking for one and maybe it would not be the right size, but I thought i would throw it out there anyway.

Thanks James. I'd take my printer apart too........tempting.......but it still works mighty fine, so I'll hafta keep my eyeballs peeled fer an old one. The gears been turning in me head 'bout the belts anyhows--pretty sure I have some foam sheet I got from Michaels that I'm thinking of trying, especially fer the Vbelt fer the gernerator. Might be too thick fer the blower belt, but mebbe if'n I cuts cogs in it, hmmmmm :)
