    New minibike-and-other-projects-workshop project.

    Hello again, Electrician came over for a quick inspection a while ago, there would be no need for a heavier power connection from the grid, that is if I do not use all heavy machines at once...

    14cc head help

    Why the 24lb valve springs? Is that needed because of the other cam? With a stock cam I can rev my GX 160, with 18lb springs, to 6000-7000 rpm and I don't need more rpm. As the engine is designed to operate at 3600rpm, that's probably where the power is.

    Torque converter conversion.

    Depending on sizes of the tapered shaft, here's what I would do: Machine crankshaft down to fit the torque converter, or easier option is to machine stationary sheave of torque converter to fit the tapered shaft. Again, it depends on the sizing of the shaft. To machine the stationary sheave of...

    Post your cars!

    I have double checked my calculations: 1ltr=20km (that's if you don't drive to crazy, which isn't difficult with the "huge" 1.6ltr engine, that makes 75HP...) It equals 47 miles/gallon. Diesel price is now €2,11/ltr. That equals $8,40/gallon. That makes fuel consumption: $0,17/mile. More specs...

    speedometer on doodlebug?

    I have this one installed: It's a tachometer, speedometer and it is capable to show fuel level, if you have a fuel level sensor installed. I didn't have the fuel sensor installed when I made the video. But the gauge is accurate. It can be set to each tire circumference. And it was only €20-€25,-

    ARC Speedway Billet flywheels

    From their website: "The new 6696 billet flywheel from ARC Racing has an ultra low drag fin design that will greatly reduce air drag on your racing engine, while still moving enough air for cooling. " So I assume it moves enough air for cooling for racing and for average riding.

    Honda ST, CT, DAX 50cc replica.

    Back again with pictures. This is the new Puch headlight that I've mounted. I have installed a fitting of a Yamaha moped and now it accepts BA20D lightbulbs or in my case a BA20D LED light. For the new speedometer I made this little magnet in the brake rotor. Speed is measured with a hall...
