Nothing loose Pat, that is the counter weight rotating on the output shaft and because of the Go Pro frames per second you can see different frequencies of RPM, kind of like watching a spoke wheel in fluorescent light that makes them look like they are rotating backwards at some speeds, I ran this kart all day and nothing came loose or fell off. Rotary combustion engines are externally balanced on both ends of the eccentric shaftIn your video of the engine, looking back over the clutch and pipe, there's something loose on the crankshaft. What is it, and does it have a purpose????
Thank you Sir!That thing sounds amazing and looks like it drives well I'm glad u got it finished
LOL! Thanks Denny! She was out there all day with me as we had both karts out and she was the one that filmed my qualifying video, she loves it! that little engine is as smooth as an electric motor,I am very pleased with the end results that yellow kart handles better than mine so I am going to have to build me a frame like hers now! Yeah I normally lay out a bigger track and I was not able to ring that engine out all the way because of the size of the test track but it was fun and I was giving her some driving lessons so I wanted to be able to watch her drive. Thank you for the compliment if the kart impresses you then I am truly flattered!Is that all? I mean what a boring video, I expected better from you. I mean Slide had his grandson driving on his, Joe at least had a small burnout on his and you, nothing but circles. Hold on, I'm only kidding. That thing is Friggin Great! Did wifey even get to drive it yet? What does she think, is she happy?
Three builds have impressed me the most this year and this is one of them. I could not wait to see the finished product, way cool!
Attached please find images of my disassembled engine parts batch, one of the fans is from a Citroen 2CV, 602 cc flat twin, air cooled engine, the other is from a Citroen GS, versions of this engine from 1050 to 1299 cc existed, all flat four, like Subaru engines. Regards, + salut
You have a Sachs KC 27 that is reed valved from a Hercules W2000 motorcycle, that engine as you know has a vacuum controlled valve that changes the intake porting from bridge side porting to peripheral porting at certain RPM ranges, do you have the transmission for this engine also? Thank you for posting and I would like to see more of what you intend to do with this engine.Here is my entry for the 2015 DIYGK contest.It is a kart that I am going to build for my wife and all the design,fabrication,welding and machining will be done by myself.The engine is a 1970 Curtiss Wright rotary combustion engine which was made in Germany by Sachs and the engine has been modified by me for more power output.[/Attached please find images of my disassembled engine parts lot. Regards, + salut
Being as it is getting closer to the end of this build off competition here are some facts and figures about my entry as a reference regarding this build,
Thanks, coming from you I will take that as a compliment! You ought to post one about your beautiful creation as a reference so everyone can see, I would like to see it posted with a picture of your kart.
