Re: OT-Engine Swap, anyone know how to fit this?

I have a suggestion but since you have "revernd" in your title I best keep it to myself [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Actually Im gonna do about the same thing in a couple weeks. I work at a LARGE gear manufacture and were building a gear fourty eight feet in diameter for a bridge in N.Y. Ill be posting a pic of it in a couple weeks , imagine that crawl ratio!

How does one go about building a gear so large? And how do you transport a 48 ft gear from Ohio to NY? Sounds interesting, what kind of tools and whatnot is used?

Ahhhh! Brings back memories of the old Allison V-12's that were used in the old Unlimited Hydroplane race boats.
Nothing sounded like those screaming piston powered boats. Nickmil. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: OT-Engine Swap, anyone know how to fit this?

I'll alert Team "Miss America" and Team Strega immediately! Both had engine problems this year at Reno....and they banged up Miss A pretty good when they set her down...real bummer. Beauty of a P-51.

Hmmm....wonder how many sets of CJ hoods and fenders you'd have to weld together to get a long enough nose for that V-12!

The gear is for the Macombs Dam Bridge over the Harlem river in the buroughs of Manhattan and Bronx N.Y. I wasn't going to mention it till I was able to post a picture cause I figured no one would beleive me any way. My companys name is Horsburgh&Scott in Cleveland Ohio they have a web page but it's kinda lame (not many pictures)
