    Only took ~22 days.



    Hoping to work on the flywheel this weekend.

    Ended up buying that house. Guess I get to move to my own shop in a few months.

    Titties and tires, nothing but problems.

    Keep up the work!

    Yea, I'm pretty stoked. For sound and throttle response, they can't be beaten. I'd like to get my manifold fabbed up and at least start testing it by the end of the summer. For now, standard induction will do just fine. I'll be happy to have the car running well enough to move in July without a tow truck.

    Worked on the flywheel a bit today.

    I bought one of those little 6-ton presses from Harbor Freight for like $60 the other day.



    I assembled that and then got to work turning some ~.750" 4140 rod into .455"x.300" plugs with a 45 chamfer about .035" deep



    Ended up with something like this.



    I also made a drift of sorts, to allow pressing only on the plug itself. My initial intention was to machine the faces flat and recess the plugs to the bottom of the factory countersink in the flywheel with that tool.



    I ended up making the plugs the same overall thickness as the flywheel with a matching chamfer and I pressed them in with LocTite sleeve retainer. They're about a .005" interference fit.

    Here's a plug going in from the back side.







    Managed to get four done tonight in a couple hours. I'll go back tomorrow to finish. Then hopefully Friday I can take it to work with me and put the appropriate bolt pattern into it.



    Clutch should be here tomorrow as well. Can't wait to see that fella'.

    Got that flywheel mostly finished up. Just need to take it to work with me tomorrow and drill the new bolt pattern. We've got a big honkin' drill press hiding down in the bowels of the building.









    Last picture there is the BCD for the new bolt pattern. I'll lay the new holes out by hand, pilot drill and then bore up to ~7/16".

    New clutch showed up today. Damn it's pretty. Why didn't I do this years ago? Oh yea. Dumb kid with no real tools.









    ...and finally, the entire package WITH all hardware.



    If I finish the flywheel at a reasonable time tomorrow, I'll head back over to Eden and finish up the tooling I need for crank flange redrilling.

    I finished up the flywheel today.





    I also started rethinking my crank flange drilling jig. I don't like that bootleg strap that holds it to the flange. I decided to machine a shoulder into the bit guide itself, and I'll make mirror image 'washers' to clamp against that shoulder when bolts are torqued.



    This will also more easily allow the use of the two different sized bolts used during the drilling process.



    Hoping to get over there Sunday and make the rest​ of the clamps and stop collars I need for the bit and tap. Then I tear down and reseal the new motor. Realistically, I only have a couple solid days worth of work left. I really just need to find the time to spend in the shop.

    Walk over to my house next time you're in Eden. We can make vroom vroom noises on the motorcycles.

    I reworked that flange re-drilling jig. Much better.







    Getting pretty decent with this lathe. Beautiful surface finish.



    I'd like to get back over tomorrow to make my flywheel centering pilot and tap guide. I'd also like to get the crank flange drilled and tapped. We'll see what I come up with.
