Heh. That big-block mower is worth more than his home.:right:

A penetrating weld would have discoloered the wrench, would it not? I see discoloration where they heated the wrenches to make the bends...

xoxoxoBruce 06-06-2017 01:05 PM

The welds were probably painted along with the frame.

Gravdigr 06-06-2017 03:37 PM

I'd have painted the discoloration from the torch, as well, then.

what is "variable geometry turbocharger"?

Off the top of my head, I would say that the vanes inside the turbo, that catch the exhaust that drives the turbo are adjustable for pitch. To catch more, or less, exhaust, to spin the turbo faster, or slower.

Like a variable pitch propeller on a plane.

xoxoxoBruce 06-08-2017 04:15 PM

Or maybe the driven blades that move the intake air are variable.

Gravdigr 06-08-2017 04:44 PM

Oh, yeah...That other set of vanes.

:D

BigV 06-08-2017 09:32 PM

maybe i don't know. but that fucker is spinning at 100,000 rpm, it seems like you could find another place to fiddle faddle the amount of boost that wouldn't involve such an insane amount of reciprocating, no, washplating machinery.

I'm gonna look it up.

BigV 06-08-2017 09:37 PM

Ok, looks like they're changing the geometry of the inlet air, either with a sliding wall which reminds me of a choke plate, or by using vanes on the inlet (turbine side, exhaust stream) that can change their angle and direct the flow toward different places on the turbine blades (not the compressor blades on the "inlet" for the intake to the engine.

interesting.

The one at the link has a bigger bucket.:3_eyes:

The 240 ton Caterpillar 994K has 12 foot tires. The top of the cab is 23 feet off the ground. The bucket can scoop 45 tons at a time. The bucket is 41 feet high when raised. It has a 72 liter engine that makes 1850 hp. The 994K has a 5,678 (5,6,7,8 :eyebrow:) liter fuel tank.

I was surprised it did so much after the cut that released it. The base must be pretty tacky.

xoxoxoBruce 06-25-2017 08:21 PM

It's held down by a vacuum table, but you're right. After the pockets, center hole and outline are cut there isn't a hell of a lot of surface area to hold it. Also, that pad, for lack of a better word, beneath the part so they don't cut into the table, must be porous so the vacuum can reach the part. After so much is cut away there must be a large amount of wasted vacuum. It must be a hell of a pump/reservoir to maintain enough vacuum on the part.

Griff 06-26-2017 07:52 AM

Very cool. The vacuum must be wicked strong. I was thinking nonporous pad with some kind of adhesive.

xoxoxoBruce 06-26-2017 11:12 AM

The vacuum is those 4 valves he turned on before he started.

Impressive engine...

Gravdigr 07-03-2017 03:18 PM

I suppose there's an engine under there. Somewhere.

The only thing being blocked from view is part of the valve cover by what I'd guess is the accumulator tubes for the intake system.


You can get a headlight system for your Model T in solid brass. The Amish must pay an extra buck to get them in black. ;)

The only part of the engine in view is part of the valve cover.:lol2:

xoxoxoBruce 07-05-2017 05:51 PM

Whaaa, the two carbs and blower are part of the engine, although they do hide the short block.

The first Econoline I've liked...

Gravdigr 07-06-2017 06:10 PM

When I show him these pics, this guy I know is going to have a genuine conniption.

He loves those '60's Econoline vans & pick-ups. And he's a purist, too, thinks everyone of them ought to to be bone stock and factory.

I hope he shits his pants.:D

xoxoxoBruce 07-07-2017 01:16 AM

I've heard of some weird fetishes but stock Econolines is really really sick. :lol:

Gravdigr 07-07-2017 01:11 PM

He likes 60s Valiants, too, so...

xoxoxoBruce 07-07-2017 01:19 PM

At least the Valiants were sort of unique in styling and the slant six but the econoline was blah. Come to think of it, I had a boss with both and he was sort of unique but mostly blah. :lol:

How long would it take to program that whole operation?:3_eyes:

Also, dayum @ 2:06. That's a new one on me.

Another dayum @ 2:37.

Actually, urrthing after 2:06 is pretty much holy shit for me.

BigV 07-31-2017 05:28 PM

Yep, the whole time I'm thinking, "math is haaaaard", and I *like* math.

That's a tall crane, and a big fan. They better hope a wind doesn't kick up.

glatt 08-14-2017 08:13 AM

The sun's pretty low in that image, but not sunrise.

Hot air balloonists fly just after sunrise because that's when the wind is most calm.
