Ic Engine Projects

The two halves will be installed separately side-by-side on the finished engine using two common bolts in the center. Shown also are some of the many fixtures Tom has had to make to complete parts and operations. It seems that part of the exercise did not work at all. Preliminary assembly of the whole engine was done to test-fit all the parts. He sent along this nice shot of the pistons, rings and fixtures laid out on his drawing.

This engine uses a unique set of epicyclic gears where one gear revolves around another gear. One ring broke during installation, but luckily Ron Chernich supplied an extra piston with rings, so we had a spare. Heat is applied to back of the aluminum plate with a propane torch.

As you can see, it spins fine! The third photo shows the front of the engine with distributor in place and water pump installed and plumbed.

The crank elements will need to be machined to shape and drilled, and the pins that connect them must be turned to complete the crank. We are using a varient of it on the Seal.

Watch a video of the cam being ground. Tom Boyer installs the valve springs and adjusting nuts as the eight valves go into the block. The second photo shows the individual parts that make it up. The engine is made from bar stock. During final assembly, Tom sets the valve timing.

Notice this time Tom is wearing welding gloves. The completed Seal on its final oak display base. Click on photo to enlarge. The built-up crankshaft is now in progress.

Here is the block of aluminum Pam cut out on Sherline's FlowJet water jet cutter. The piston rings and cams are now installed, and everything turns smoothly. The second photo shows the crankshaft center bearing holder installed in the block. The Seal block is seen with some of the completed parts and again with the camshaft installed.

The bottom of the block as of late November shows the access to the crankcase. When the project is complete we will add to this site a list of known issues we discovered when building the engine. The assembled short block ready for a test run-in.

Many grooves are cut using the parting tool and then a hole is drilled down the middle from each end. This next project will also be a group build, and we would like to accommodate those who were unable to get in on the Seal project.

Tom is using a tip by someone who has already built the engine to make an oversize base for two of the studs to overcome this problem. The timing cover is machined flat and the mounting holes are drilled using a rotary table.

Eventually some of these components will be hidden underneath the final display base, but for the first run they are exposed in case they need to be accessed. Our apologies to those who tuned in and were not able to see the event. The pump halves are assembled with four small socket head screws. Tom finished up the second cam, which was a relatively quick process now that the code was dialed in.

Within a week or so after the first attempt to run the engine, tum to thehre pardesi songs pk Joe and Tom had the kinks worked out. Scott Wolf captured the first firing of the engine. This pretty much the final big test the engine had to pass before it is test run. Watch this web site for future projects and get involved early to assure your participation.

Projects by Amandeep Singh. The usual practice is to make about twice as many as you need, as they do have a tendency to break. The radiator now holds pressure, the side plates are ready to be attached.

We also welcome new contributions. Photos show the fins being cut on a Sherline lathe, the assembled eight finned rods with bottom tank, the top tank and the full assembly placed on a set of plans.

Machinist's Calculator lmscnc. Finishes on Jerry's model are so perfect this is going to be a tough act to follow. Consequently, the pressure and volumes of the four states were plotted, along with the real time pressure-volume profile of the compression and expansion strokes. The block and some of the other parts have been bead blasted to give a cast look, the rest are left with a natural or polished finish. The Panther Pup is an air-cooled internal combustion engine.
