| Mid 1980s vintage ServEquip 100 hp motorcycle hydraulic brake chassis dynamometer.
Upgrading to consist of integrating my National Instruments VXI-1000 mainframe
for automated data acquisition using a National Instruments AT-MIO-16XE-50
I/O board, with LabView for Windows operating platform. Measurements
include torque, rpm, rear wheel MPH, exhaust temp, head temp, ambient temp
and atmospheric pressure.
| 1954 Sun distributor machine with adapter for british motorcycle ignitions.
Shown is a boyer pickup in the adapter in preparation for a digital boyer
spin test to verify the advance curve.
| The wheel truing fixture. The wheel is from a 1968 Dunstall Atlas, containing
a fairly rare Rickman disc brake hub and Boranni rim with newly installed
stainless spokes. A few dial indicators make this easier work.
| The fixture used to hold a Norton heavy twin head in preparation for the boring
process. Then the exhaust port insert is dropped in place and then welded. When
done correctly, it is much better than new. It has tighter class of thread plus a few extra threads to boot.
| Of course the exhaust fixture has to get bolted to one of these. It is a 1968 Bridgeport step pulley model. It runs on a rotary 3 phase converter I designed and built. Heiden Hein Digital Read Out on X&Y axis and a Mititoyo readout on the quill.
