Balancing -rods
nsracing
Here are ideas how i balance for the reciprocating weights

Reciprocating weight is The total weight of the rod and matched by taking the weight off the smallend - . You do this after matching the bigend weights first hung on the scale with a rod fixture. This be which are the rotating weights.

The pistons are also part of the reciprocating weights so just weighed on top of the scale.

Balancing pressure plates
nsracing
Here is one way to lighten the heavy side of pressure plates. Notice how I peened the tips so it will locate without wobbling in the flywheel. REgrind flywheels are notorious for oversize register for the pressure plate.

One way to keep the pressure plate centered for the balancing is to peen those pesky teeth.

Clearing rockers for swivel feets. No need to grind the hell of it. The swivels only move up down perpendicular to the rocker shaft anyway.

Or, you can run a chamfer tool to achieve the same. You just get a bigger hole. LOl.

800HP Go Power Engine Dyno
nsracing
An old engine dyno of the past trying to come back to life. This is my current project for 2013 and see if I can resurrect it back to life.

The brake seems to be in good condition. I am sure there gotta be bearings or seals that need replacing.

I have gone through all the paperwork materials and find this equipment not as complicated as I had anticipated. The meter is hydraulic-operated by 2 load cells attached to the brake body. The movement or resistance/torque on the brake is read on the meter. Hence HP is only calcuted.

So far, I like it. See what happens once I get it inspected/torn down and rebuilt.

First acquisiton/addition to the tool collection of 2013. Finally... my very own engine dyno. YES!

Th1s is an older GoPower rated for 4-800HP. I am working on it now bringing it back to life. Will post how well it works once completely done up.

Had it torn down/inspected. The trunnion support is good but I had to machine fresh bearings for it. I made some nicer and longer/thicker bearings for it for s-m-o-o-t-h movement. LOL>.

Next is construction of the dedicated engine stand. Oh so much to do still....

ProBal 2000 Dynamic Balancer -NSR
nsracing
It is shown here w/ full calibration I am doing w/ it. The calibration tool has 18.5 grams in each wheel and the machine is picking it up -see windows. This balancer uses a photo-eye to track the movement of the wheel. It gives the amount of unbalances and position in degrees based on the reflective media at 12'0clock (zero degrees). I do all balance jobs w/ this machine exclusively, and I love using it. I still have my Stewart Warner 2000s though. I am also in the process of mounting the dedicated drillhead for this ProBal SWH 2000.

Most stock cranks will be 0.5 ounce inches or worse from factory. Stock flywheels are way out of balance. Pressure plates can be out 25 grams!! These factory tolerances are just way much for smooth running and HP. The unbalance tolerances need to be DOWN to increase performance. It is an expense to do dynamic balancing but well worth it for the life and increase in performance of your engine.

High Perf: 0.3 -0.4 oz inches crank/ 0.5 g pistons-rods

Taper reamer and NPT taps for doing proper fullflowing on VW aircooled cases. The taper reamer prevents any splitting on the side of case. The NPT has no side-loading when you finally tap the threads in. Use a taper reamer first before tapping so a simple $50 fullflfow work does NOT turn into a $150 welding work. LOL.
