Hey Buddy! Nice looking engine! I don't know how I missed your geographic location. You and I pretty much actively represent CEF here in Eastern New England. I live about 20 mi. from Seekonk, MA. Welcome to the forum! Thumbs Up

The Crank

Post  TopBannana on Tue Jan 13, 2015 5:52 pm

the crank is very thick in diameter and the regular babe bee looks very slim compared to mine, are they the same size. If not were can i find a crank that i can mount a prop to it? Babe Bee .049 Huh...

The car cranks are larger diameter, so a standard crank won't fit in that crankcase. The car crank just has a taper on the nose rather than the splines for a prop driver, so you have to manufacture a suitable prop driver yourself as I've not been able to come up with an "off the shelf" solution. I would think the car crankcase assembly would be a good choice for converting to diesel because it is a stronger crank.

Not to contradict you Rod, maybe they didn't make their way
down under, but there was a car crank with a large splined end.
They were in the funny cars and dragsters.
Jason tackled converting one for flight here:

I think the trike had a pull starter, and that crank end was indeed tapered(I think).

Bob, I have several car engines and have only ever seen the taper nose cranks. That's not to say the splined ones never made it to OZ, but I haven't heard of them before now.
