Alignment the crankshaft's S6 1930
« on: 20 Dec 2017 at 14:51 »
Hi like this at Christmas time.
Is there anyone who has a tip how to alignment the crankshaft's shoulders after I have changed the connection rod rollers. The axle has 37 hundred mm offset on the transmission side and 14 hundred mm offsets on the flywheel shaft when I check it with studs at the ends of a lathe.
I wish you all a Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year
Kalle

Hi Kalle,
             Your setup for checking the alignment of your crank assumes that the centres in the ends of the shafts are truly in the centre - they may not be! Also, the pressure on the centres may be inducing a false reading.
  It is better to support the crank on pairs of ball races, or knife edge rollers, positioned close to the crank webs - then rotate the crank and clock up the small end of the taper and the small end of the timing side shaft. A certain amount of adjustment can be made by squeezing the webs or wedging them apart as necessary. Checking the webs for parallel with a toolbit and feeler gauges will give a good idea where the adjustment needs to be made.

  Regards,
                Eddie.

Maybe Santa will bring me an Alpha Tru flywheel jig https://www.mbscooters.co.uk/images/products/IMG_4170.JPG but I doubt it. Like most mortals I have to make do with lesser set-ups. I'm pretty crap at aligning flywheels, but it's satisfying when the job is done.

Good luck Kalle, and best Christmas wishes to you too.

Hi Eddie and Michael
Thank you for your tips, how nice there are those who know what's up. I can manufacture such a tripod to check the measurements instead of in the lathe. How do you do the line alignment? Do you put the crankshaft in a bench and break back with a pipe on the shafts to make it right or how did you do that?
Have a Merry Christmas
Best regards Kalle

Hi Kalle,

My way to trueing the crankshaft is:
I look to the measure clock(s) and knock the front /rear part of the crankshaft (with a plastic hammer) to the right side to eleminate untrueness, holding the crankshaft in one hand. I never beat on the shafts.
T35 cranks have holes for steel rods to make an easy assembling possible.
Your crankshaft have not sutch holes.
