After a busy/stressful month, back to working on projects.
snapped a drill bit drilling axially in to the end of oil pump drive shaft using lathe, but lucky it didn’t get stuck in the hole. hole taped, and now have 35 tooth gear mounted on oil pump. I’ll probably just add glue if it does slip under power. Waiting for the RTV liquid gasket to set again.
Used paper to “shim” the gap between motor shaft and the worm- it’s not a tight fit so will need to add glue. Now on to making the frame to mount the DC motor to the oil pump.
