Sorry everyone for the lack of progress , mainly due to college , now its the coronavirus stuff , Croatia is on lockdown , meaning nothing but the essential shops are open .

I havent really worked on the turbo project at all , mainly since i took the chance of the little free time i had to work on the Rondo project , got the thing running properly finally with a new HL360 carby , hit close to 13k RPM , which by the cartcalc app is around 75-80km/h . I have a second SH frame to work on too , and an engine to fix up .. so the turbo project is in parallel with that .

I did however think about getting a pressure-washer pump , and building a DIY load-tester since im pretty sure with no load only boost im going to see is me hitting the thing with a hammer... soo .. will see

Finally some work done. Experimental setup, to see if turbo would even spool. Engine is giving me trouble tho, seems to be backfiring, for no apparent reason.

After some investigating.. The culprit was the sparkplug. Changed it out, retuned the carb and it sprung to life. The factory exhaust manifold however, didnt like the additonal heat, and weight bouncing around.

After a couple of minutes running, it broke around the stock weld seam.

Tho for results, the turbo seemed to spool up, tho without the compressor side hooked up to anything, this doesnt mean much. I supplied oil via the gear pump, i still need to figure out a mount, pulleys and belt for it.
Oiling looked decent, especially when the turbo heated up.
