Or just do it the way Toyota does and put the chain cover really close to the chain so it starts making grinding sounds when it is worn out

Thought I’d stepped into the Barry thread......

 

my 2C, honda cx500 has basically what your doing, and they go for ever so meh

Those three bolts can be loosened and some wiggle room to take up the slack of 40yrs of motoring 

However there is a little plug on the side of the case to chuck a mirror into to check this and the cam chain, possibly worth adding to yours?

Nothing like some chains to bring out the Barries.

Oh and A+ project, definitely fun to follow the updates.

This could quickly turn into the HOW TO MOVE A CONTAINER HOUSE thread. 

My vote is no chains. Use a hydraulic pump on end of crank,  connected to a hydraulic motor that drives the oil pump.

Magnets involved somehow.

Or just fill the entire space up with hand cut gears.

 

I'm sure the engine is together and propelling Kevin to the beach already tho

I was gonna mention the hunting tooth thing but figured chances are you would have gotten it right by luck or design

to be fair, if whatever is chosen does fuck out and lunch the motor; I'd happily chuck some dollars in to help pay for the next motor.

It would only provide more entertainment for us and Alex has provided a tonne of that on this forum for free :)

Yea I say that when it lunches itself we run a poll to decide what the next engine should be, we all chip in to get it to Alex, then sit back and watch the mad antics as he solves all of the unwieldy problems in getting it to fit.

To start the suggestions I choose an OM606 with a DPUK 600hp pump.

Oh you guys. Lol. When this engine explodes I'll post up some fantastic vids and then start planning my Fezza f40 engine install which I'm totally happy to be gifted...  :-)

This man makes a good point.

Edit.

Actually, it might, chain just needs the right number of links so it doesnt land on the same link with the same tooth each time....?

yeah pretty much that. I think it can have any tooth combination (so long as the cam sprocket has twice as many teeth as the crank one) but the chain has to have a number of links that cant be evenly divided by either sprocket.

Does that sound right?
