Wedge List / original strut top bits, front suspension
« Last post by tencate on July 16, 2018, 08:46:11 AM »
I presume many if not most of you have converted your strut tops to needle

bearings.



Like me I presume you never throw anything away.



I'm writing an article on the upper strut mounts and hardware and would like

to either get hold of or take photos and measurements of all the original

"stuff". Can anyone help? We're happy to pay shipping costs and a reasonable

cost if you simply wanna sell them. Donations accepted too :-)



Thanks,

Wedge List / Crane cams wheels
« Last post by tencate on July 16, 2018, 08:41:54 AM »
FWIW, Jeff at Advanced Distributors has the world's supply of Crane Cam 8

cylinder wheels. TWOA thought about 3D printing them but since there's still a

good supply of them from Jeff, well, the motivation to get the 3D printing

project going rather fizzled.

I will see if I can find a micrometer to get the shaft width, none of the

rest of the dimensions should be supercritical.

I am OK with 3D design as long as it is a pretty simple shape.  If you send me

the dimensions I can make a 3D cad drawing.



For "enthusiast" 3D printing I agree ABS is about the best we can make. But

professional printers can use much higher temperature materials.  I spoke with

someone whose employer makes parts

For fire control systems.  That material is stable in quite high temperatures.

I dwill not know what the material is....

Ibd be willing to print one and send to someone.   ABS probably the best

bet.  I need a file though.   Ibm not too good with cad.

What Wayne said, it needs to be tight enough to stay put, yet remain

removable. It does seem to be a fairly common plastic piece.  I do hereby

volunteer to be a guinea pig to test the prototype.

If you could do it in a material that could withstand the, vibration, fuel and

oil vapors and could stand up to being spun at 3000 RPM, I don't see why

not.B



bTWOA was exploring that possibility. Not sure how far they (or we) got.



Bill Derksen, do you remember?

Wonder if a 3D printed one would work?

Wedge List / Crane (now FAST) timing shutter wheel sought
« Last post by "Jim Altman" on July 15, 2018, 02:27:06 PM »
I recently had to do a bit of internal distributor work and noticed that one

of the locating feet on the timing shutter wheel  for the XR700 ignition is

broken off.  The manufacturer no longer supplies the 8 cylinder wheel for

the stock TR8 dizzy with the kit.  There is an 8 cyl wheel, but it does not

fit the shaft. Might someone (perhaps someone with a 7) have a spare 8 cyl

wheel they'd care to part with?



 



TIA

Wedge List / Re: Coolant inspection sight glass?

Interesting comment in the "Why You Might Need One" section.  4% air content

in coolant system results in 38% decrease in heat transfer.



WOW!
