BMVW 4th Gear Bushing

The aftermarket bushing I got for the BMVW trans 4th gear needed finish machining.  That meant turning the OD to size and cutting the oil grooves in it.  I made this mandrel to hold it in the lathe and set to work.  It came out ok but the ID was a bit too large out of the bag and I can't do anything about that.  I may try making one from scratch but this one will work in a pinch.  It's better than the worn out one I removed.

Dune Buggy Wheel Adapters

Been working on some wheel adapters for the dune buggy.  First one is done and looks great.  Turns out it needs the center hole opened up a bit more to clear the spindle, but that's simple enough.
