I’d be honored to help any which way I can including simulations, modeling or drawings.

Mike, in paper days of old we only drew the blanks and the gear gashers told us what gear notes to put on the drawings. They do all the heavy mathematical lifting for us!
While the gears can certainly be modeled for visual or simulation purposes I would not even attempt a gear simulation!
Well, I would attempt it but would not have much faith in my answers without consulting the gear folks. :-P
Gear design is all mathematically transcendental anyway!  :-o :x :cheers:

I bet you thought I took a powder because I've been scarce. I admit I haven't been posting but I'm doing small things that excite me to get my mojo back.
I was told if it becomes a chore back off. It was. If I walked into the shop I got physically ill. Not sure if the enormity of the task that dawned on me or the personal problems I was having were to blame.
Either way I'm easing my way back in. To be honest I need that elusive rubber, some tranny stuff and to finish the body including canopy. Our currency is in the tank and things don't look good but I partnered up with two geniuses on a business venture and I've burned my bridges. They guys are solid in every way and friends I trust. The project is high tech and we each have a roll to play. This new deal will generate funds to buy tires. Not too worried about rear end ratios at present. Working on the Throttle body components and the plenum chamber for now. Going to dummy it up in a day or two and I'll post photos.

I lost time but you all warned me these are long term projects so I go with the advice from the wise. Life is crazy and new surprises show up regularly so I'm not 100% but getting the old feeling back. God Bless and to all going to WOS be safe and go fast. Love you guys. Yoy kept me in the game without trying. For this I thank you.

Mike,
Good to see you back. Making cool stuff for LSRers is what does it for me.

Thanks Terry. Busy on setting up those runners. I swear it's a miracle how well they line up with the ports. Whenever I have doubts about this dream becoming reality things like this happen. It's scary. How you pulled it off is still a mystery and we'll show the world your skill. These parts are perfect!!!!. God Bless you.

It is nice to have you back on the forum.  I was worried about you.  Sometimes cleaning up the shop helps to boost morale.

That's what I've always liked about all you guys here. The honesty. Jerry, you're right and I have been slack. I let small stuff get in the way of long stuff. Point taken.

Thanks brother. God Bless you.

Thanks Sparky. Back working on the girl. She's being really sweet and cooperative. Pics of parts in a few days.
BTW, without knowing it I've been watering my Lemon tree Ala Burt Munro. He knew stuff. Thanks Burt!!! RIP.

I hope some greatness washes off on my baby.
