Compound – Oil Cups

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen.

You must be wandering what I am up to, but I feel to play around a bit with the oil cups.

Oil Cups

Ones again I follow a suggestion from Mr. John R. Bentley  and I am not going to use brass, instead I am using hexagon steel bar.

As you can see on my skis, it’s a very simple oil cup, but it will stand out.

So, first in the lathe where I marked out the length and prepare for the threading.

Then I threaded the oil cup…

…and some deep turns so the threading can go to the bottoms.

Then some more turns on the lathe …

… so that I can shape the cups.
Then drilling a 1 mm hole from the bottom.

After cut off I turn the cup around and drilled 4.5 mm hole.

And after some clean up I feel radar pleased.

And they fit well with the rest of the engine.

Again no big update, but now it will take a while before I post something new, I will begin whith the cylinder block.

I’ll be back
