      I spent a couple of hours making the pulleys for the water pumps. I turned it from a piece of 1" Delrin rod. It's very easy to turn this plastic. Unlike styrene 39 Lincoln 5 , Delrin doesn't have the tendency to melt while you're turning even on higher settings. It also doesn't have the tendency to get stringy like styrene 39 Lincoln 5 when you sand 39 Lincoln 5 it. It powders right off and polishes up nicely with the high grit sanding 39 Lincoln 5 pads even dry. When turning the stuff, it comes off in ribbons and makes a big mess on the floor but that's sweepable. Tomorrow, I'll start working on the pump bodies and the front of the block. Not sure when I'll have it done since I'm also working on the Olds engine at the same time. Sorry for the size of the pic. I'm having a little problem with my resize program.

    That is one of delrins greatest qualities is its machinebility. Once you start making parts with it you get more and more ideas to use it for. I have machined it for alot of things in food processing, it makes the best bushing and bearing material in areas where a ball or needle bearing would die a quick and painfull death.

    I tried to Google the name to find out where to get Delrin and all I got were commercial sites for industrial quantities.

    I was lucky, Syd. The pieces I was able to get were scrap. The company that's near me is called Alro Plastics. Google them and see if you can get them to send you less than industrial quantities. I don't know how expensive they are but when I get to some of the bigger parts like wheels and tires, I'll need to go back and get some pieces cut. Hopefully, I won't hit a roadblock at that point.

    Thanks fuzzy. It's always good to have several sources.

    Well now then, I just learned a great lesson about proportion and dominoes today. I was working on the front of the v12 and was just about to start working on the valley and something just didn't look right. The valley looked way too big and any corrections I made just made the proportions and the appearance worse and worse. When I went back to my source that I measured from originally, I realized that when compared to some of my research pictures, my source had a rotten measurement which got built into my engine. Whenever I tried to make corrections on the proportions, the errors carried right along like a set of dominoes knocking each other down. The only way to correct the situation is I have to start all over again. Today, I started again from the beginning. Now it looks like it should and the proportions are correct. Why didn't I just continue and bury the mistake many of you may ask? The purpose of the build in the first place is for me to make a correct to scale extremely high quality model to the best of my ability rather than just make a model car. It just wasn't up to the best of my ability. I just couldn't let it go. It's a hobby.

    Well put Jeff. Your mistake is a lesson for all of us. As they say....."measure once, measure twice and then measure it again". You are a fine example of the dedication to perfection we have amongst us.

    It's weird but when I know there is a glaring error, it just creeps me out. I agonize over it until i redo the part. If you knew how many times I measured that thing, you'd wonder why it was off. I always believe in multiple attempts at measurement but I didn't see the flaw in my source until it was too late. Then it became a fly in my soup. At least it makes it possible for me to correct some of the other errors along the way.

    I almost have the engine back to where it was originally. If i do say so myself, the new engine is better quality than the first one by far. Just a little more to go and I'll have some pics up.

    Jeff,

    Do you have any dimensions, pix ,etc. on the Zephyr tranny. I'm thinking about a 1/8 for FH project(s)?

    Yes, Bob, I have a picture or two of the tranny. It's very similar to the Ford flattie tranny with a few changes. I haven't gotten to the dimensions yet but I'll copy the pics I have and send them to you by PM. That way I won't violate the copyrights. BTW, anyone who wants the pics just ask and I'll do the same. No sweat.
