how many Originals were built?

I'm working on my column for Red Power and I want to mention how many Originals were built. I can't seem to put my hands on a serial # list that shows when the Original stopped and the 70/100 started. I don't need an exact figure, just how many thousand were built. I was thinking it was over 60,000 ...

Re: Engine Starting Promblem

If the condenser is doing its job, there should be very little (if any) noticable spark at the points. However, you should get a spark at the plug by manually
opening the points like that.

I like your attitude. Maybe we can keep fall going right on through till spring?

Re: BRINLY BB-100 dump cart mounting!

I have one for a Cub Cadet and it mounts to the Brinly sleeve hitch with a single pin just like the plow, disc, and other Brinly implements do. On a JD I think they mount directly to the tractor and don't use the sleeve hitch. Can you post some pics of what you have? I should have some pics of mine ...

Re: Anyone ever see this guy?

I saw the post before it was edited and I think I understand why it was posted, but it was a poor choice of words.

I can't get the image in William's original post to come up on either my home computer or the one at work. So this whole thread
is kind of a mystery to me.

Re: Driveshaft support bearings

I think the lock collar will take the load ok. If they are properly locked they can take a good bit of thrust (think how hard some of the pto bearings are to get off). I think I may be ok now. I think I had the shaft pushed forward leaving some slack before it was pushing against the input shaft. I ...

I'd like to see pics of different types of driveshaft support bearings.

need dimensions on a 582 throwout arm

I need some dimensions on the clutch throwout arm on a 582 or 1050, 1606, 1806, etc (82 series style gear drive).
They don't have to be super precise. I need the overall length, and the distance from the top pivot hole to the center of the hole the driveshaft goes through.

Do an internet search on Wankle rotary engine or Mazda rotary engine and I'm sure you'll find all kinds of info on how they work.
If they can be woud up they can make a lot of power in a small lightweight package.

Which style head are you running? You may be able to lower it with a different head.
