Dredger Engine- Crankweb and Firebox Door
Power is transmitted from the dredger engine to a cog on the crankshaft which is held in place with a crank-web. It is similar to the crank-webs which secure the flywheel. Similar, but more complex and more difficult to make.
The engine is really taking shape. I am looking forward to seeing it run.
Wouh, what a monster John. Incredibly, How much its is the weight till now?
A few kilos. Not as heavy as the triple yet, but maybe when it is full of water.
Wow! What a beautiful job you are doing. Each time you post an update it looks better and better! Truly becoming a museum quality project. Kudos!
Wow! thank you for that very nice comment!
