Awwww, now how can you simply stop in the middle like that!!
Unless your waiting on parts to arrive.





Well, it's not like I was rushing to get this done but it would be nice to have it out of the way so I can get back to the rock pile and house/shop building.
I am glad I resisted the temptation to beat on that round thingy with a rubber hammer, trying to make it go.


Maybe tomorrow it will show up at my door. Then again the new AC Delco factory oil pan with the factory drain plug won't be here until Monday, I just found it today on Amazon for about 60% off. Yet another one of those open box deals so I had to.
Cooler hose and fittings should be here by then too. I couldn't get myself to use the 3/8" fittings that only had about a 1/4" passage way so I opted for 1/2" hose and fittings instead.
I was surprised that the cooler came with such a poor selection of fittings, plus the hose supplied with it is 23/64" what's with that from a company who is owned by Spicer.


The cooler fitting that came with it on the right, my upgraded fitting in the middle.




That ought to allow a sizeable amount more flow.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

It won't flow any more than what the pump will deliver, but the larger diameter will slow the flow down so that the larger surface area can reject a bit more heat.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

OK,
and the pump will have less resistance to contend with.
Less resistance would be less pressure but the volume still remains the same.
Slower flow = more cooling, potentially.


Thanks for the lessons.


The new valves in the pump along with upgraded springs and enlarging a couple of ports as per the parts manufacturer, plus other goodies should also help the cause.











The new TC arrived this afternoon and . . . . . it fits!!
Slid right in just as easy as the old one. It even looks much nicer than the other. No rough welds at the neck and where it was opened. I think my mention of the flats having a slight tapper and the caliper standing on the rough weld might have influenced their decision on sending a better product, at least it's nice to think it did.

I got some of these 20W LED shop lights; 20 euros each, pretty ok.
Screwed one to a board, works very well for under car lighting.
note extra clamp on the wire.








I wonder why there is a clamp. . . . . .


I was under the truck and reached over & moved the light and felt a tingle. Decided that was enough for the day.
Remember, I slid a piece of sheet metal under the truck so I could use a floor jack.
Good thing I had on my heavy jacket & not just a tee shirt.


Inside my cheap light here is what I found.







The yellow was ground, the red is neutral and the blue is hot. The cord retainer let loose and the plastic cover on the blue wire connector was rattling around inside.


If you have one of these, be aware of the potential hazard.





Another good thing, I wasn't rolling around on the wet driveway.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

the extra clamp is because there's a sort of shuffling slob who habituates my 1 man workshop; first he leaves the wires all over the place, then trips over them.
This tends to pull the wire part way out of the inadequate grommet on the fixture, causing shock hazard.

You really ought to have GFIs on all circuits.
I put in 4 of them, so when the shuffling slob rips out some wire or other, the OH doesn't lose TV over in the house.

Hedge cutting today all day. It's warm + sunny, lots of tourists hurrying to the beach; I already finished working the road side.
I know that they'll be coming back all afternoon with a few beers in their bellies and hungry kids in their back seats.
I was thinking it might be uncool to be tractoring on Easter Sunday, but the family next door has gone away for the weekend and the old farmers are all at work.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Your right,especially when your work surface is steel laying on moist gravel.
I normally plug into a GFI equipped extension, but it finally went kaput and so I'm ordering a couple right now.

Already have 12/3 cord & plugs.

Same type does that here too!


I suppose the tourist appreciated the tractor work.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

I'm really surprised that your breaker box doesn't have one or more GFI's protecting all your wiring!
maybe you have a prehistoric fuse box with cloth covered wires...

My Easter Sunday was ruined by a broken hydraulic pipe on the hedge cutter. My own fault, I hit it against something and bent / fractured the steel elbow.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Today I finished the stage 1 of the indexing head.

Got the brake done. Just a clamp over the spindle hub so it's not putting any side load that could cause run out. I glued a protractor scale template on the back of the chuck backplate so I can have a quick reference for now.

Also machined a quick and dirty hub so I could use an handle from my previous lathe for the time being.

And got to play with it a bit. The part I started the test with, ended being the knob for the shift fork of the worm drive.

Now, I'm just waiting for the electronics.

And we're getting quite a bit of rain up up here in the center of the country.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

No cloth covered wire, just one GFI breaker in the main.
We won't talk about the sub panel.
Naw, really it's all to code . . . . mostly.
But safe!!


Pedro you have too much fun! looking good!!


Nice knob!!





My new oil pan with the drain plug showed up, It has a dent!!!
Well worth the discount, won't see it any way. Plus I painted it so you can't even see it.
I'm following in Marks foot steps, I ordered tune up parts to go with the oil change. I haven't tuned it since I retired, over 10 years!! Last November it passed smog with flying colors.
The old plugs looked great tan to light brown.
Haven't popped the dizzy cap yet, wonder what I'll find inside.
Probably cob webs.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Fantastic work; I appreciate the photos of the knob in the mill, it helps inform us what the rotary head is for.
I got my hydraulic hose repaired and finished cutting the hedge, got everything put away before it rained.
We didn't get much, but I like to hear rain and just be happy about it, knowing my machinery is all under cover.

The last time that I bought a panel mounted GFI breaker was the last time that I bought one. It cost $105, and that was over 40 years ago. Now I only use duplex GFIs, as in Don's pic, installed as the first outlet in the circuit. My electrical inspector agreed, and he was a real fuss azz about electrical safety, and suggested that I install a row of individual duplex boxes under the panel, one for the GFI to protect each circuit. A whole lot cheaper!

Since most of my GFI protected circuits involved only one outlet, and that at the point of use, I didn't bother with the bank of outlets and saved even more.
