I have been buying parts for my planned Bugatti T32 homage and making drawings of them for inclusion in my overall design. It is frustrating to try to design things when the catalog descriptions are vague and you do not have the part in your hands. Several parts were bought and proved unuseable for what I want to build.

To save the rest of you CAD designers this trouble I plan to make my drawings available in both PDF and DXF format. Consider these to be a test of the shared drawing system. All parts are drawn full size and the size of the drawing form is scaled up so it fits on the paper. If the scale box says 1/2 the border is twice its normal size.

Today's drawings will be the HF clone motor [based on a pdf to dxf conversion I got on-line], the controversial Peerless differential, and the 4 bolt hub Northern Tool sells to mount on the Peerless.

I measured these parts with my 64 year old eyes but appreciate any "checking" you care to do. Beyta Gear Service is my consulting firm.

Apparently dxf files are not allowed and my dwg converter is not working. Hopefully the pdf files will be helpful.

Thanks Charles. These should find a welcome spot in any ones reference file
and be added to the Plans and Drawings forum.

Not sure how to open the files. I can see they are there, just will not open.

They opened and downloaded fine on my computer. Above each thumbnail view on the original post was an open/download button.

No problem reading, downloading, saving or printing them on my Dell.
Have you been able to read pdf formatted files in the past Danial?
Do you have a current copy of Acrobat Reader on your computer?

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Was able to download. Turns out I only needed to learn my new notebook.
Nice drawings.

Attached are my designs for a front axle and front & rear wishbones along with the Northern Tool coil overs. [The BMI 11" coil overs are on close out at $6 each right now! A real bargain.]
The axles need a simple Panard bar for locating purposes. I'll post my rear bearings and adapters next.

Here is the 1" flange bearing I am using on the rear axle along with an aluminum adapter to connect to the wishbones and coil overs and panard bar. It might be possible to adapt everything to the bearing housing and skip the aluminum plate. The plate does not weigh much and is basically a drill press project. It let me use the same wishbone on the front and rear. The suspension is designed to use the 2" total travel of the coil overs.

Great stuff Charles, keep it coming. Not exactly traditional cyclekart
design. But a lot would carry over and save a newbie weeks of agonizing
trial and error in his design phase.

Thanks
You are killing me! As I am trying to put "Rear Suspension " out of my mind!
Less weight, less time, less money, and simpler!
You are obviously great at finding the spec drawings.
Could you find one for a model T Ford front end??? or just front axle?
Thanks again for sharing!
There are more of watching than you think.

Easier to show you where I am hoping to end up.

With the exception of the motor, these drawings are my creations not something I found on the internet, Not that there is anything wrong with finding stuff on the internet.

I have been designing machinery for over 40 years; 53 years since I first sat a drafting board.

My T32 will have full bodywork so the appearance of the suspension does not matter. Cross springs, parallel springs, quarter elliptics, or underslung suspensions are interesting and I may do a more traditional Kart in the future. Until then I'll share what I design. If someone wants something else designed I am willing to assist. Some of what I see being done on this site is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

A standardized set of components for traditional suspensions would be fairly simple to organize using HF, Northern Tool, or trailer components.
