    yes they are basically the same except the Re-drive bolt patterns. I removed the tabs I had on it for motor supports. There was no weight advantage and it really complicated things for me on the mill so I cut the them off. I did not add any provisions on the housing for attachment of a mount. I...

    Webber 750 engine

    Thats interesting, I heard the same problem was happening here. We don't have many machine shops here. I was talking to a machinist last week and he told me they were cutting their night shift because they bought a new Haas 5 Axis machine and they could not find qualified machinist to run it it...

    Here you can see the CBox can be mounted up or down. The lip is a close tolerance fit so the box can rotate around the housing and keep its crankshaft alignment. Picture number 3, you can see the attachment bolt. I can take an 1/8 of an inch more off of the backplate. Just beyond the attachment...

    Here are the last pictures of the housing next to a Doctor Pepper soda can. I hope it will give you some ideal of the size .

    Tony, I don't know much about Mazak except they are suppose to be one of the better machines out there. Now days most shops can just digitize off of the original part and the machine can write its own program. My machine is very easy to program, or I would not be able to do it. I read a lot...

    Webber 750 engine

    Hi Tony, It seems like I have not done anything in so long. I have had software issues with this machine since I got it to Louisiana. Too long a ride on bumby roads I guess, or its just getting real old. I have been at my mothers quite a bit and we have had wave after wave of thunder storms...

    Webber 750 engine

    I hope to replace the floppy drive in the machine soon, then I can save the programs on a separate disc. When the software is not an issue, this is one sweet hunk of iron. A few more pictures ; This is the rough out piece that I cut on the Grizzly Mill, before I got this older American Made...

    Webber 750 engine

    Thursday was my birthday, so this weekend, I went to the shop and started the Mill. I found out all of my programs were gone! I had to reload the Mill parameters and then start from scratch to write the programs again. The only one I was able to finish was the profile for the bell housing for...

    KB2 Step Keel Conversion

    Chris, the Green Gyro is cut at 49 inches from the forward end of the Keel. That way you can use your same axle bolt holes as you have stated. It your mast exceeds 68 inches you may have to move the axle back to acheive proper loading of the nose wheel. This can be done by making the cluster...

    Weber with Autoflight box

    I am not bashing Yamaha , Arctic or any other engines. I am proud of everyone who attempts to get us an alternate engine, especially a 4 stroke. This is an excerpt from the Snowmobile Magazine, for the Polaris 2012 750 engine, With all of that, this rather cushy personal luxury sport cruiser...
