Hi Willy,


Its one L in Stilwell, and Dayton Ohio, not Daytona. This link has a bunch of info, including the name they changed to.  Dayton is currently the home of a giant US Air Force plane museum, well worth the visit to any in the area. Bit far for you Willy!

That site has a lot of good info on a lot of manufacturers. Also, if you click on the Publications and Images tabs on the Stilwell page, they have some catalogs scanned that you can view.

Thanks Chris, yes there is a lot of info on the web ..I spent a lot of time on Graces Guide but now you have to pay for it ?!!

More work on the oil pots after havingnbeen glued to the telly over the past couple of weeks ???  There is a lid on the grease pot and this has a nurled feature that is made by pushing a needle file over it  with the belt drive disconnected ..it is a cross cut file so seams to work well...I have also used the 10 BA die to hold the parts while I clean them up after parting off...

Beautiful work Willy.  Those oilers really finish it off.

back in the WKSP. and the last part is the very small oilers for the crankshaft... I have made an indexing device for the hexagon nut and the 4 other oil viewing holes.. I have used the bull wheel on the Myford to mark out the indexing hole positions and have painted them to quickly reference the correct spacing for filing and drilling the oiler....
