I've seen some amazing footage from the Indian sub-continent, but this takes the biscuit. I love the slag hammer and the protective shield for his right hand safety sandal
How do you know that @Brad93 ? If it's a diesel no one would know.That engine must run like a bag of spanners
Sure it probably works. But how he polished each journal, theres no way they are a uniform size. But then again i bet they just go through rods and cranks and keep changing them out. Labour is cheap there.How do you know that @Brad93 ? If it's a diesel no one would know.
Depends how good he was at tapping the crank into line, how good he was at pressing it straight, and how close to tolerance he machined, then polished it.
How long it lasts before cracking is the question I'd like an answer to, but his work, in sandals, ring on finger and watch on wrist notwithstanding was impressive. We all know cracks start on the outside, so maybe this would last a fair while.
I think we're all too ready to rubbish stuff like this, but it works, to some degree at least.
Remarkable nation of people they really are and get my full respect for there ability to just get it done
