Well done, but what specific engines do they fit?
I see the capacity, but not the brand?
You don't make any for Audi 3.0 V6 diesel do you? I know a guy who needs one ...
This post should clear it up a little.
Ace likely won't name the engines for fear of engine manufacturers coming after them. Brand "K" has done just that in the past to the Czech adapters of their engines for light aviation use. For "Clone" think "Lifan", which clones "Brand H" engines. Ace has also worked with water cooled Gaokin ATV engines of about 800cc displacement.
That Audi would be a whole 'nuther deal. The people that come and go, making reduction drives for American V-8s, might be able to do something for your guy...these folks have been in business a long time https://www.centurydrives.com/index.htm They sell through dealers. Here is one https://diamondbackairboats.myshopify.com/products/ch-3-2-1-belt-drive-reduction-unit $3,400. No weight cited. The Atkins rotary airplane engine people use these drives.
Thanks KR, that's helps a bit.
i know Gaokin well, have been to their factory a few times and been to dinner with the sales staff.
Actually I have been to the Lifan factory as well about 10 years ago, but that was the car division.
Too much information to go on. Most commercial V-Twin engines have common crankcase threaded holes to fit accessories. So these fit almost all of them (B&S, Honda, Kawasaki, Subaru, Kohler, Generac and a few others).
We don`t make one for the Audi V6
Hi John, what is the center to center on the long back plate drive? For streamlining on a self launch sailplane, can we increase the mounting face to prop flange distance? How much is practical?
Our long back plate centers are 220 mm. Standard is 169 mm. We make lots of custom redrives these days. One customer had 250 mm between centers but I advised him to have a separate tension pulley on that one. I like our standard backplate as I know that there is absolutely no belt vibration.
