Hello all!

Managed some garage time today. Worked on the bell housing.

Started by machining the OD of the housing and establishing the back of the flange. Then I machined a small boss on the rear so there would be something to hold onto the part when it gets rotated.



I learned this one from watching the members on the HMEM site. I machined steps every .025 to the proper depth to form a .500 radius.



Then with a file and some sand paper, the steps were blended together to form the curve.



The part was then rotated and the flange was brought to size.



The inside was drilled thru and the two bores were made.



The insite corner was knocked down on a 45 degree angle to complete the inside shape.



A small step was them made to give the proper size to fit the boss on the rear plate.



Again the part was rotated and the holding boss was removed and cleaned up a little.




I still need to drill the hole pattern to mount the piece but that should be a quick deal!

Thanks!

Funny thing is, I have the special tooling. I'm just to lazy to switch the tooling back and fourth.

I love this, but one thing's bothering me: So far you've got a near-perfect replica of a Chevy small-block, why the Ford valve covers? Especially when 4-bolt Chevy's would be easier to make?

Thats because they are chevy big block covers. I copied a set of BBC covers I found a picture of on the web somewhere.

Nothing I do is about being easy!! Hahaa!

Hello All!


Had the chance to make some cylinder liners today. Having so many to make, I decided to predrill the centers so it won't have to be done on the lathe.





I make my liners with 3 diameters to make the liners easier to press in. The problem with that is, it makes it easier to screw up and have to scrap a piece with one more diameter to have to hit.





I turn the liner ID to .015 - .020 smaller than finished size. I like to press them in the block and binish the bore installed.





I part the liners off long so the deck of the block can be milled to match the liners. Then the part is rotated and a skim cut is taken to smooth the surface for pressing.





With the 3 step liner and the bore to match, the liner drops in more than half way making it easier to push in. I use a Q-tip to paint on some green loc-tite and send them home.




One down, one to go.

And now I see how you did the water jackets, too. I was wondering about that.

Not very difficult to do water jackets.

Hello All!

Found some garage time so i sprang into action. Setup the block and indicated it in.




Took a cut across the deck surface to get the liners down to the deck height.




Then I ran a boring bar thru the cylinders to bring the holes to size. and called that done.




Then I made the 32 lifter bushings for both blocks.



Tomorrow the other block will get finished.
