Good progress is being made on the supercharger prototype. I managed to get all the custom parts printed up so a test fit was possible. A bearing and oil seal will still need to be fitted but that didn't stop a quick trial fit.
The main components shown here consist of the custom couplers I've designed, a custom shaft and a custom engine casing. I also printed up a cush coupler so I don't damage the one I will be using in the finished product.
A close up of the shaft and couplers assembled.
One of the couplers attaches to the engine crank simply by using the bolt that holds the ignition trigger wheel in place. A cush coupler goes on next and then the other coupler attached to the shaft is inserted.
The rest of the setup is designed to provide support to the shaft and pulley.
