Miller-Ford Spinners

Posted on: Saturday February 10, 2018

Miller front spinner 001

I finished the front wheel spinner. It turned out awesome, just like I planned . I had to mill off the lip on the Honda wheel hub, but that was easy. Cast aluminum cuts like butter. Then I used the drill guide I made to drill the three holes. So I have spinners on the front wheels that actually spin.

'35 Miller-Ford Rolling Chassis

Cycle kart rolling chassis 001

I finally finished the pin drive hubs and the key ways in the axle, so I could assemble it this far and roll it around. That's progress! Next comes finishing the body support skeleton and then the body panels. I was thinking about using a thin gauge steel for some of the body panels that won't be removable, so I can spot weld them in place and not have hundreds of rivets showing.

Pin-drive Rear Hubs

Also, I'm not too crazy about the look of the four bolt sticking out of the rear hubs on a lot of karts I see. Plus the hubs from ACK are expensive. So I bit the bullet and did what I have always done on this cycle kart - I made my own. I ordered some 6061 aluminum, bought some grade 8 SH...

Engine Turned Dash

Instrument panel 001

After several days of experimenting, I finally have it done. It's far from perfect, but it'll do. I started out using a cone shaped wire brush, because someone told me that works well. I'm not listening to that guy any more. It worked, but I didn't like the dull look of the finished product, plus the wire doesn't give a clean edge to the circles. So I sanded it back smooth and hit youtube for some how-to vids. Every video has a different method, so I had to decide which to try next. One...
