Yes it is time for an update.
I finished off the 2nd set of headers......







then i wanted to make some pretty things as I was starting to get bored, so I decided to finalise all the belt runs.
The supercharger will be driven from a shaft going along the side of the block, so I made the pulleys and clamps etc. for this..



This is just the belt tension pulley arm.



this is how it comes off the miller...



and this is after 2 hours of filing and polishing, and then a quick anodise..

So this is where I'm up to as of last night.
The mechanism for the variable valve timing isn't going too well.
I want the 2 idler pulleys on each belt to keep the tension the same, as the idler is pushed into the belt, but although the CAD says it should work, it doesn't in practice, so I'm doing a bit of trial and error with different pulley centres and pulley diameters.

Keith,

Your apparent dedication to perfection in producing each piece, while working with manual machines, should not be ignored or minimized! This is a dying art form! I take my hat off to you for your efforts! :praise2: :praise2:

Thanks chaps.
Managed some work over Xmas.
I mainly wanted to make the inserts for the cam covers as these were going to be slightly tricky.
It took 4 full days to make them, then I realised on one side I'd put the plug holes in 1mm out, so this took another day to sort out.
I managed to offset the o ring holes 0.5mm on the cover, and offset turn the spark plug tubes by 0.5mm.
This should make sense from the pics.

I also sorted out the cam belt tensioners.
I wanted a nice smooth spring system as there will be a lot of slack to take up when the variable timing pulleys operate.
I went for lever arms with a spring loaded piston in the front of the head. The levers pick up the piston through a slot in the head. I'll get some close ups later, I forgot when I assembled it.

Was cruising through and got stopped here. Wow!!! I mean wow!!!
Read the entire thread...I see I popped in last March...so it was great to catch up.

It's obvious you're not in the states...but I haven't figured out where you are.

Keith-

Your attention to detail and your finishing techniques really set your engines apart. They are true works of art.

Not much to report on the V10 front.
I've had the V8 on youtube for over a year now, but there has been a growing group of commentors who don't believe it is a running engine.
I've been accused of all sorts of things, liar, cheat, fraud etc.
So I finally got round to doing another video which should put it all to rest.
There's some funny exhaust smoking going on, ie. only smoking on one side, so that needs a look at.
We did some V10 stuff at the same time so it may be of interest to someone.
Cheers.

Keith, are these comments at youtube?
Ignore them, there's no shortage of idiots with only half a braincell on there :(
It wouldn't surprise me if some of the comments are from people that are fully aware it's real, but they just get their kicks out of creating a stir... youtube seems to be the biggest troll magnet.
I'm seeing more and more video's there where commenting has been disabled, smart move I reckon.

Anyway, on a lighter note, I've really been looking forward to a new installment(longtime lurker)
I love your work and I'm learning a hell of a lot from your posts.
Cheers!

Amazing video Keith.  I would not worry too much on what is said on utube.
