Re: How to Install the Driveplate on .049

I have concluded that the method the I use to this works because I use studs rather than screw in .049 crank noses.

Just attach the trust washer, a prop, washer and nut to the crank with the splines aligned and tighten the nut to seat the thrust washer. No arbor press or special tool is needed.

Worked like a charm on my Surestart .049. Ask Ron Cribbs about my simple method.

I love this.
This is a opportunity for me to wield my universal tool.
The FBH Very Happy
It's known in this part of the world as a 'large' hammer..
Seriously though I just stripped one of me 010's and used the prop bolt as a drift.

And on the way back used a piece of dowel from the rear.

Much to my neighbours chagrin it BRAAAAAAAP ran first time.

Cool

John I have learned that the only reason I have neighbours is for someone to hear my great engines run.

If an engine runs in a neighborhood and a neighbor is not there to hear it does the engine really make a sound?

Depends on your earmuffs.
I run mine inside my shop at night with the doors closed. I've had a noticeable drop off in spiders and nothing ever rusts anymore.

Yes because it creates sound waves and that is sound and some call sound noise.

I use good quality earmuffs, so it's not too loud inside.. I just have to throw open the doors after the run, turn my big box fan on high and wave it around to blow out the smoke.

Thats why i like running them inside sometimes Smile
When running them you don't notice but when you re-enter the room you are confronted with a massive white cloud of gas.

Yeah me too. I have a small and a medium ball-peen and a big ball peen, two old wooden handled professional carpenter's claw hammers, and a brass hammer, a rubber hammer, a plastic hammer, one hammer with both of those, a tinner's riveting hammer, a tack hammer, a slag hammer, a wrapped rawhide hammer and a maul, a full sized railroad-spike-driving sledge hammer, and a smaller 5lb sledge hammer, a 16" cross peen sledge and my most favorite hammer of all, a Craftsman short handled mini-sledge that I lovingly named "The One-Lick-Stick." If I see any I forgot, I'll toss them in too.

Alright guys, let's hear it, what kind of hammer do you have for that prop drive plate?

My smileys aren't working.
