Finaly sometime off from work. Okay here is what has happened so far. Engine cases bored and crankshaft sent our for trueing and tig welding. Awaiting return of crankshaft. The company is back logged 4 days and will not be able to get it back to me untill the 14th.
Information gathered over the course of this build has led to some interesting findings.
1-Timken bearings are not 100% necessary unless going to a high Tq motor
2-The stock bearing is able to handle up to 100h/100tq
3-Cast Flywheels are not as strong as the Forged BUT will work in big motors if they are trued and welded.
4-If nothing else is done to the crankshaft at least true/weld it =cheap insurnace for big motors
Next mission objective- Wait on crankshaft
