A set of plans from an old magazine, could be of interest to someone smiling smiley

I apologise if I've got the page numbers out of order.

I love that little overhead cam 4 banger engine. They didn't say what displacement it is.

Unfortunately there's nothing more about it in the article and when I tried to Google it I ended up with nothing but a pile of unrelated junk. Mind you that's not surprising for Google these days as its quality as a serious search engine has gone downhill recently.

That article is available online at http://packmag.net. There is also an article on an "Arlen Special midget racer" that is interesting.

For those of you more mechanically inclined (I am more of a woodwright than anything), what might be a good source for the bevel gears on the countershaft?

I mean, all the rest seems simple, and is actually the basic layout of the pedal car I’m building.

I’m simply curious as to what type of whatzits I may be able to scavenge some gears like that.

Very cool post that made me think and dream.

Peace,
Robert

Hi robert a good source for those bevel gears would be bostongear.com and any type of big food/dough/pizza ind mixers or probably can use the worm drive set up from angle drills /worm drive saws to drive the wheels from engine.I hope this helps you out.take care n cheers

Thanks.

I don’t think ordering expensive bits from the web (I can search) is on par with scavenging bits, though, and I can’t imagine any mixer I could put 20 odd horses through, even industrial type equipment.

I was actually thinking more along the lines of yard equipment, or somesuch more robust and designed for horsepower and torque transmission.

Peace,
Robert

Egad! A worm drive saw?

I am looking to transmit 10-20 horsepower through a set of gears to drive a pair of wheels with no diff. The gears driving the counter shaft need to be a little beefier than a right angle tool drive.

Good ideas for a smaller vehicle, maybe, like one of the drill powered kiddie carts.

Peace,
Robert
