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... Fingers crossed.
Since last update I have added gutters and finished roofing; video:
Also since last...
3 weeks of holiday, will be spend at my new garage/workshop.
I have made a brickwall for the toilet room and further I have made trim for the gutters, which have been placed, too.
Currently working on designing, drawing a shelter that will be added to the lefthand side of the new garage. It will...
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.
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...
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.
This is my car in front of my house.
It is a Citroën Berlingo.
1,6 ltr (97cui) diesel.:rolleyes:
2 minibikes easily fit in the back, while 3 minibikes is also possible. Out of sight and behind locked doors.
The Dodge pick up is my brother's, it's a Cummins diesel and won't make 47mpg...

While the pandemic was going on, I decided to start building a new garage in my backyard, here in Netherlands. Because the building process here in Netherlands might differ from yours in USA, it might be interested fro some.
I build the new garage by myself and get help from my brother...
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,-
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.
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...
