A dyno! Wow! That is next level! You'll be able to certify power and torque levels to your customers as well as experiment with cams/porting/bespoke high performance engines (say for Reno or aerobatics). Great news!
That thing is cool. I used to have use of a portable test cell for my turbine shop in the Coast Guard . We used to run the heli turbines on it. It had a dyno and everything.
World domination next step! You are going to have to build a bigger shop!
Why is a dyno "next level"? If you intend to modify vital systems like cams, valves, ports, ignition, injection, displacement, bore, ... on a combustion engine isn't there no propper way but a dyno? Or is exhaust temperature enough to rely on?
Anyway. You are walking the right path.
Call Barrett. They used to do it years ago but now only do their own engines.
I wanna say the cost was around $1,000 including shipping but this is all based on my memory.
If I recall talking to them at Sun n Fun about doing my engine they had stopped doing it for customers because they had some bad experience with tying up the dyno with engines that hadn't been prepared properly, incomplete etc.
I'd like to get some pulls done on a race motor for evaluation of exhaust systems. F-1 race engine is a stock 0-200.
Not sure how all that data would be useful without a comparison to what engine was like 200 hrs run time prior to rebuild.
I’d be good for about $1k
What are you thinking for a price? Would have to know that before I could say.
Bill Lutz Jeff Green yall know where a dyno might be
Why not offer some WCC coating on the cams? It is arround 4 microns thick and reduces friction as well as wear. Had some pretty impressive results on high pressure actuation cams in an airbus project. No shearing off or noticeable wear and reduced friction moment from over 140Nm to under 50 in a high pressure line contact. Check oerlikon-balzers if you like. It is deposited in vacuum and exceeds the DLC stuff. Expensive but worth it. Had hardened Cronidur 30 at 62hrc as cam. Without those 4 microns the cam welded with the opponent on first actuation!
We went to a four day work week about two years ago. I can tell you as a business owner that my team gets more done in 4 days than they previously got done in 5.
Certainly it is becoming more and more popular here in New Zealand and definitely helps attracting a better quality of staff!! They are more productive as well!!
I did a Sunday through Wednesday week 10ths/day for quite a few years at the tv station I used to work at, 1p-11p. That got us through the 6&10pm news as well as quite a bit of production time. I’ve been a proponent since then. 3 day weekends are pretty sweet!
Gotta learn more about this. Kudos to you and your team.
We start after the first of the year.
We work a 4-day (10 hr. days) week at BAE. Awesome to have a 3-day weekend every week.
A dozen donuts helps more than you would think
How many hours a day are you talking about in a 4 day work week?
