Maybe a daft question:confused:  but i'll ask anyway, does anyone know the size/dimensions of the gib keys that go in the flywheels of an Amanco 3-1/2hp, also the best place to obtain one?
Cheers,Karl.Laughing

Nope, i had to drill 'em out, i guess i'll have to do it the hard way, measure then make it,
BTW, the new flywheel is half machined, pictures to come at some point !

Nope, they're UNC, But it has odd sizes as the brackets both had oval holes on one side so i had to use 1/2'' and 3/8'' .

New flywheel machining

Post by EarlBathurst on Sun Dec 15 2013, 20:19

Evening all, Been doing a little bit on the Amanco's new flywheel, i thought i'd share the progress with you, its not 100% finished Yet, mainly due to the need to fettle the keyway.
Cheers,Karl.

hi Karl, looks like you are getting on with it well. That machine must be massive as it makes that flywheel look like a small flywheel!

he Karl, I know that's it all voluntary and all that but is all the machines owned by someone, part owned by different people or is it donated?
