Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Spring tension adjusters/lock rings. The taller ones fit inside the springs.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

All press-fitted machined aluminum with the kit provided springs (also friction fit).
I'll paint the springs later. At least now I can continue engineering and building other pieces of the car…
Yes, there are rubber bushings for the eyelets.

Anything less would be an impertinence!

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Rear shocks installed…
I also turned an aluminum pulley to drive the alternator and it's mounted to the half-shaft.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Finally, and for the first time it is up on its wheels so I can get an idea of where the ride height is.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Back to working on the alternator; because it has become relevant to the suspension.
More fabrication…

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Man Mark...you're doing your "outstanding" craftsmanship as usual. I't truly a pleasure watching you build this car. You've set your standards so high...I was wondering if you sleep well at night...trying not to think about the build... Great stuff...

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Thanks Gary. I usually sleep fine, but on the occasions I can't I figure out how to make these parts.

Alternator bracket. I designed it in SolidWorks and grew it.

Alternator drive pulley.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

Assembled alternator bolted to the bracket. I machined the hardware.
(The fan spins too.) Still some detail painting to do…

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I had to make an offset pulley for the alternator to clear the transmission mounts. The ratio comes out to the alternator turning about 3000 RPM at 100MPH.

Alternator assembly loosely fitted to the car.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I drew up the base of the intake manifold and did a test print.

Re: Lola T-70 Mk III

I designed a Weber 48 IDA carb in SolidWorks. I might have gone a little overkill, but sometimes those details print well. Even though I made the springs and hardware I'll probably print the master without some of those details and machine them in metal like usual.

Linkages that can barely be seen…

The screen is a separate part too.

Idle and mixture screws with springs.
