F I N A L L Y !!!!! ....I am off from work.
Jeff, Franey, Gearhead...thanks a lot for you input !!!
I'm afraid I disregarded it ( I may very well regret that later ) and went on with my plan:
how to make a roller-starter with the fewest
(and cheapest) parts possible:
..so I spend a late night at my friend Jacobs place.
Jacob is quite brilliant working a lathe and a mill.
It all goes down in his basement, with an old cassette-tape player playing fifties jazz music in the background
and once in a while his wife comes down and offers refreshments.......bloody nice!
The rollers were rounded in the ends , incorporating a small 'neck'
..holes were cut in the delrin using a thingy in the mill
that I have no clue what is called in English.
Sort of a head with an adjustable cutting tip for extremely accurate hole-cutting
Then I cut off the snout of the starter , and cut down the starter-axle
and another guy made me an axle
with a hole bored in it that fitted exactly on to the starters axle ( as to keep them 'in line' )
and the 'new' axle was welded to the starter-axle / cog-wheel
...a corresponding hole was bored in one of the rollers to accept the motor-axle.
Cut down the delrin, and cut off the top of the aluminum bar.
Bushings for the starter motor
Test the set-up and mark where to make threads for the bolts that will hold things together
The delrin is absolutely wonderful to work on.
You can use a pair of scissors as a smoothing plane to make a real nice surface-finish
..and at the same time you can cut a thread that really is surprisingly
Do a bit of cutting, and set up for welding a ramp
Cut a hose left-over from the blower intake,
that happened to have the exact right diameter,
to keep the dirt and salt from entering the starter moter
...bore through the roller/axle and insert locking-pin
...and ( fanfare ) you have the LEGO of roller startersMission accomplished; it works !!!
For battery I am contemplating maybe using one of these tiny nifty things:MOTYDESIGN lightweight batteries
That done, it's time to start up the darn bike.
Wish me luck !!
Have a splendid weekend ya'all!
