Re: Driver Casting Repro

This is interesting: http://www.ijirse.com/wp-content/upload/2016/02/1160B.pdf They are 3D printing the moulds directly with sodium silicate/sand using a process similar to the laser sintering process but with a CO2 jet instead of a laser. No pattern at all. Yes... 3D printing of MOLDS is becoming ...

Re: 10-Wheeler Cylinder castings

Re: Suspension problems

I'm following this thread so that I can learn about suspension as I go. I have a new-to-me atlantic and I'm not sure how much it ran before I got it. As such I may need to make adjustments also.

Re: injector?

If you think about it, the bore of the tailpipes is about a 1/4" square (I'm using a generalization since I typically use a 1/4" ratchet extension to install these things). That's about 1/16 sq inches of area. 3/8" NPT would be about 0.300 in^2. I think you'll be fine with 1/4" NPT fittings or even ...

Re: 12" Guage Wheel Standard

Perhaps a credit to the WF&P would be ideal. After all, the members of WF&P came up with this standard a long time ago.

Re: Little engines 1" line of engines

I can attest to Jim's experience. Many times have I had to go out to the floor to very explicitly explain to the cleaning team members where I work how to properly clean these castings. We have a process database and I spent most of my time documenting all of these very specific notes, along with ph...

Re: Pipe thread sealant?

I use 1/4" wide Teflon tape from McMaster Carr. Easier than putzing around with your 30c rolls of Teflon tape from the hardware store. I always double check my fittings to ensure nothing gets inside a valve body, etc. and always keep the tape one thread shy of the end of the fitting. I think this he...
