Re: flywheel shear pin keeps breaking
Dad worked on them (Wright Cyclones) for the B29(?) back when at the Chicago (Cicero) Dodge plant, then went on to build R4360's and Pratt J57s, again at the old Chicago Dodge plant, then taken over by Ford AED. Long ago.
Same place Preston Tucker built his 50 Tuckers... Dad said he was put out of business by the Big '4' of the day... Didn't want the competition, and they had a lobby in DC, which Tucker did not. Old f*rt memories, I spoze.
Back OT, if the crankshaft taper is all scored from slippage, what is a possible solution? I have two in mind, but one involves disassembly, and the other involves epoxies...
