Day 27 – SHE RUNS! Can’t be stalled!

Modified the spline a bit more and got the clutch back together, working! Put everything back under the hood, and took it for a spin! With the clutch working we can just turn the motor on and leave it on, breaking via the clutch. Here are some pictures of the motor, and at the end a video of driving it outside into the snow!

A nice shot of the engine... err... motor compartment!

Still need to take it all apart again, remove the spline, and get it hardened. At school tomorrow we’re going to do a hardness test on the original spline using some equipment the college has, then we’re going to send our spline in to get case hardened to that level. Oh and we also have to figured out how to center the flywheel properly – its got a little bit of a wobble right now.
