gear ratios for the 3 speed unidrive :)  5053-5058

 

1st: 66.8 to 1

2nd: 42.4 to 1

3rd: 24.6 to 1 

reverse: 51.5 to 1

 

i'm assuming your 90 degree box doesn't have any gear reduction or vice versa. so the calculation shouldn't be to hard.

thank you very much! 

So I've got a max speed of 3.81MPH! that is a little slow, I might go down two inches. 

I think I've sorted out the throttle though, seems to work after a short test :) 

 

thanks again,

Callum

i have been light off roading with rusty it is fun,she likes to go to a watering hole and get stuck. :) the turf tires spin and i have to get off and push it.

 

sounds fun! I almost couldn't get back in the shed yesterday there's quite a step up to the shed and I started to slip when reversing back in as the bricks were all wet and green :)

it is, I felt like it was running pretty well on the stock setting (1.5turns open) but then I leaned it out a little and its smoothed out really well as well as starting even better.

Sounds great, and you've got quite the back yard, by the way!  I've noticed a lot of European back yards (gardens) are very well developed.

The stack does give it a nice deep note, softer on the ears too.

thank you very much for the comment on the garden, I've past your comment onto our head gardener (Mum!)

I'm not really sure, I love the fact i don't have to be careful with the paint when working on it or using. It's also stored in a shed with bicycles that are taken out and replaced regularly. At the moment the paint wouldn't last a week without getting scratched! although I have hit all the new fabricated parts with primer to prevent rust.

 

perhaps some stage in the future I may paint, but I also quite like the patina...

Well, with all this lovely weather I thought I better get onto something I had been turning a blind eye to for a while now. 

the hitch lift cable was attached to the bottom of the hand lever, this meant that with the plough (or other heavy implement) it would try and pull detent pin out of the notches. it was only a matter of time before something broke. 

So by using the second deck lift arm+shaft (the first was used for the brake assembly if you cast you mind back) I have created a linkage type thing to relieve the hand lever of the axial strain. 

I have also added a turnbuckle on the cable so can adjust it if necessary 

 

With this new system I have now been able to easily install a spring assist, I used a trampoline spring for this. 

 

Before the new assembly, you can see the small detent pin just hang on!

now after, pin fully engaged, not going anywhere:

thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed this little update,
