work comenced today on EV1

Post by matt86 on Fri Aug 05 2011, 21:23

I decided to start stripping the ev1 apart mainly to give me something to do but the plan is a full cosmetic restoration as it runs fine and inspected the mains and they look in good condition too and plenty of suction. So just a cosmetic one this time .

Started to strip it apart just need to mark the ignition timing so i know where it goes back , cant seem to find the timing marks on the flywheels so il make some on the crank sprocket myself . and then i can get the grinder out with the wire brush head and the sanding disc's and hopefully get some red oxide applied to the block by tomorrow.





there is a fibre seal on each end of the mains where would i get some material like this from ?



regards , matt

Getting on well Matt, looks to be an easy restore if everything is in good working order.

That fibre seal looks like normal 1/2 gland packing Matt, although I am not sure.

Should be able to get gland packing in any place that sells pump spares.

Cheers

assembled the timber together for the trolley today just needs sanding down as you may notice the glue stains :embarrassed: Then oiling and the axles made . then i can start by assembling the sump and the block onto the trolley .:yahoo: ...surpose next step would be to start cleaning down some other parts to paint ....


a few pictures :

decided to try and do the joints with a old style teqnique with pins , there is 4 screws only to hold the axles spacers on , but will not be seen .

to me paint is paint they last better with a good coat of it on

lol! lol! well apart from emullsions they dont work so good on metals , they tend to go a rusty colour and fast lol! lol!
my neighbour painted a home made trailer with it looked good for a week in the summer , then it rained half washed onto his tarmac drive , the next day the rest wwas rusty brown white emmulsion , his drive is still with a 2 ft wide grey snake down the middle 2 years later lol!
i find that cast wheels look better with a satin or semi gloss topcoat car spray type mine still rust free 2 years on the cast seams to breath better through it than a high gloss topcoat THATS MY OPINION ANYWAY
THANKS KEV

Coming along well Matt, you might get a rally out of it this year the rate your working Laughing I do like the no screw trolley, makes it look a better job and I don't think many will put there heads under it to see the screws in the axle Laughing Laughing
Keep up the good work.

ipdate ..... sanded the trolley down and now i have put 2 coats of finishing oil on just waiting till morning and can wipe down with some scotchbrite and then apply the top coats .

went to pick up some round bar for the axels 30 mm but will be having the ends turned down to 22mm to fit in the wheels i have got with .5 of a mm clearance . just need to get that done and plates welded on , wheels need to be cleaned and painted and then assembled so its all go at the moment . Very Happy

Nice to see your making progress again Matt.

Neville I'd love a Bamford but there a bloody heavy engine to be pulling about, I know everyman and his dog has a D, at least you'll not hurt yourself as much moving it around. Only thing to do is trailer mount it when your the wrong side of 35 lol! lol!
