Day 31 – Heat treating and fiddling

We took the motor assembly apart (again – we’re getting pretty fast at taking it apart!) and hardened the spline using an oxy-acetylene torch – Hopefully helped… here are some pictures:

And so it begins...

Hot stuff!

Looks tastey... A nice blue finish!

I also fixed a 12V 30amp marine battery charger Ian got from his Uncle Dave – turns out the 120v/220V switch was just broken. Now we have a fairly quick battery charger! Maybe a nice on board charger for a bike when we build one…

We’re still looking for the speedometer cable, and we think we found it with the help from the repair manual we got for the car. Still need to get the cable off of the wiring harness on the engine… It’s covered in a few feet of snow at the moment. This project would go so much faster in the summer…
