Engine installed. Drive wheel israised or lowered with lever.
birch or maple, followingthe drawings for the details.A pair of cheap 4 ft. skiscut to the required lengthwill save you a lot of timeas they are already groovedfor the runners.The next step is mount-ing the engine. The base ismade of 1/8" CRS steel withthe sides welded at rightangles and everything kept as square aspossible. Follow this up by making thesmall and large ball bearing housings(4 and 21), insert the bearings and thenfit them to the sides. Use a piece of tissuebetween the gears to locate the bearings,drill through the housings and tap thesides for screws. The shaft extenderparts (11) used to extend the crankshaftof the engine and to provide a means forlocking the flywheel and the pinion gear,are then turned and threaded true. Com-plete these operations in the lathe beforeyou cut the parts off. The pinion (12) ispushed on to the intake side of thecrankshaft, the flywheel on the otherend and the shaft extenders pushedthrough the bearings and screwed uptight. Follow this by making the motorbolts (16) and then drill 4 No. 36 holesin the base, tap 6-32 to match the mount-ing holes on the engine. The bolts arescrewed into the base and locked withone nut while the engine is adjustedvery carefully between the two othernuts and then locked down tight. Thereduction shaft (5) which turns thedrivewheel, operates the water pumpand starts the motor, is made from 3/8"
