Welcome back and thanks to all new (and old) subscribers.
The contents of this video is the reason why i was not very active on here for the last 2 weeks.
The crankshaft end and the drive pulley of my Westwood Diesel lawnmower developed a lot of play, so this needed urgent addressing as the grass did not stop growing, even if i wished for…:-)
Dismantling the engine was no option as i had no gasket set and the amount of work would be massive. So idecided to put the whole engine on the mill and skim the shaft with a boring head.
This will be a 4 part video, Part 1 and 2 are the engine shaft machining, in part 3 finishing off the engine shaft keyway, making the new pulley, part 4 shows some shaper actions and bloopers while shaping the keyway and the final assembly and test.
