Hi Tony, would be ok with electrolysis if I had a tank big enough and the bits to go with it.

I primed and painted the flywheels over the last few nights and turned out pretty good, will clean up faces when its running, says he hopefully, only thing I should have done I guess was to fit the new Jib keys first as I might damage something, I can hear some say whats wrong with the old ones, it never had any and the flywheels were 180 degrees out as they put the bolts down into the jib key slot, DUH,
Still have the tank to sort and the trolley but getting there slowly.

Spent a bit of time today trying to configure the trolley wheels and steering, not sure if the axels may be bit to wide, I did think about cutting them down, but the more I looked at them the better I felt ( what do people think ) also will it make a lot of difference to stability if its that high the wheels go under trolley frame to give a wider turning circle, or would it be best to keep as low as possible and put stops on axle to stop wheels from hitting woodwork, as I say open to any suggestions.

Update on A 16, had some spare time over the last couple of days and a few more bits added to engine flywheels and such like, now beginning to look like it should.

Hi Rich,

Engine is coming allong very well. Very Happy
Nice paintwork as well.
I agree to keep the wheels this wide.
Stability is better and this avoid tilting (and damaging) your engine.
Putting stops will prevent damaging on the woodwork bij the wheels.
Guess you will give the wood a varnish finish.
Keep up the good work

Best regards,

Steef Pronk

Hi Steef,

I have decided to make another trolley as the old one to me is not strong enough and feels very light probably made out of pine then stained, I have been out today and bought some redwood timber, I know its still a soft wood but has good grain and is 69mm by 96mm
which will make the engine more stable, I am also going to make it shorter as they would have been originally. Will post pics as I go.
Will also keep the wheels wide, but will probably change the steering axle mount a little bit to try and make it lower to the ground.

Hi Rich,

I used redwood for my trolley as well. (44mm x 69mm)

My first tought was to keep the wide of the wheels same as the width of the frame to save space in my small barn. However during the construction I've decided to enlarge the wide of the wheels.
(in total 5 cm)
The Ackermann steering will give the trolley more stability.
See the picture of the current state.

Best regards,

Steef

Thanks Tony,

I have been busy sorting the steering frame and making up the trolley for the last couple of days, before we get washed out with more rain.

Have changed the support for the front axle to metal which came from a  bench seat that was being thrown away, I then welded the handle and bottom plate to it as it will look tidier when painted and fitted plus it makes it a bit lower to the ground, I have made the trolley frame 12" shorter than it was and used thicker timber which will make it more stable, I used hidden joints on the frame as per image. My neighbor has given me a nice piece of oak which I'm going to sand off the varnish and cut to make a base for the engine to sit on.

Front axle then.



Front axle now.



This is my set up on axles.



Trolley frame in progress.

Bit more done to trolley, fitted the axles and drilled holes etc for the engine to sit on, lucky I had a template from the old trolley, I counter sunk the top plate and then when the tank is fitted and raised it will clear the steering bolt and in turn hide the top plate from view.
Now a good sanding chamfer the front edges then an oak stain and a few coats of yacht varnish, while that goes hard will get the metalwork painted in black as Aldi are doing metal care colours tomorrow in spray cans for 2.99 well worth it. Also need to get some coach bolts for back axle.

A16 update,

Trolley now painted, stained, varnished and put back together today, now I have to figure out how to get engine out of shed across a sodden lawn and fit to trolley, but that's another day.

Thanks Tony Paul and Steef, I must admit feeling pretty pleased with myself at the moment as its going well, I had a bit of a nightmare last night, as when I looked at trolley made up I began to doubt that I had left enough clearance for the flywheels, as I did not take them into account when making trolley, as it happens am pretty lucky, with the base under engine the flywheels clear the wheels just right,              a BIG   !!SIGH !!   of relief I can tell you, braved the cold today and tomorrow final checks fresh oil some fuel and hopefully will have it running, fingers crossed.

Well I can finally say the A16 is finished and decided to get Climax water pump out of the lounge to see if its ok as not had it running since I took it apart and refurbished, all working good so all in all feeling chuffed, I have had a few traumas over the last few days with the running of engine, but would like to thank all that helped me through this THANK YOU. Now all I need to do is a bit of touching in and cleaning for when I take it to its first rally, plus will need to get a longer belt.

Video as of today.
