ENGINE BUILD

Part 12 by Vince Cutajar

Started work on the two cylinder feet.  Used a 20 X 20mm bar, cut two pieces and trimmed the sides to length (2").

-

A little chain drilling and sawing later produced these.

-

And after some milling.

-

Then trimmed the width of the feet from 20mm to 19.05mm.

-

I still needed to reduce the height of the feet but I will know exactly by how much when I do the base of the feet.

-

Both feet bolted to the mill table and the tops skimmed to the desired height.

-

And here they are finished; each foot is made from two parts to make bolting to the cylinder easier.

-

And here they are with a coat of primer.

-

And, finally, a family shot with the cylinder.

-

Part 11 here. Next part here
