While doing a service on the supercharger clutch, i found that the exessive play in the pully, was actually the the play between the bearing and the seating surface. The outer bearing race has turned blue and the axial and radial seats are gone. A new clutch assembly is about $600+. So I will have to sleeve it I think.

Got another supercharger and my 3D printed intake "mold" fits perfectly! Next step is the exhaust side.

So i found out that my supercharger is not original :( Instead of the original SC which is a Japanese brand as far as i can find. it was fitted with a model coming off a SLK Mercedes. a 230 Kompressor, so size wise it is close enough. The part i'm happy about the fact it is a Eaton M62 which inspires confidence. Now i'm left with the botched intake. So i decided i would draw, print and cast it in aluminum. tall order

Bleeding brakes with someone who doesn't undestand the principle of it can be a real excercise in frustration and patience. So i made a brake bleed tool. I borrowed one from a friend of mine but it did not fit. This works like a charm.

Just looking into that botched piece of tubing leading into the supercharger. That piece of scaffold tubing has to go!

It isn't beautiful, but it looks very sturdy.

Drove the car from The Netherlands to the end of Poland (1500km) to find out that the supercharger was loose. Turns out the previous owner had made custom brackets to fit it. It looks like these brackets were welded by a blind retard with his feet, booger welds all over. Only 2 out of 4 bolts we still tightend, the bracket was cracked and loose. I managed to patch it up with some stainless lockwire and drove it to

Weren't you experiencing belt slip? The tiniest bit of movement of the supercharger will affect how tight the belt is on the pulleys. Good that you got it sorted now.

[]Bram van Damme

The belt is wrapped quite tight around the pulley and it runs 0,5 bar pressure, so I did not notice any slip. Also the play in it was perpendicular to the tension on the belt.

This is one of my top 10 favorite tools  it's a mini ratchet with the narrowest size possible, easily usable in tight corners that would normallyonly be accessible to an allen wrench. it also has a very small ratchet angle and it comes with a screwdriver handle and an extension piece.

Cute little Honda, at first I think what a nice little classic and then my mind goes: Motorcycle engine swap!!!! Am I a bad person?

Tool time! This is a must have tool for every mechanic. It's a combination of a pipe wrench and a bench vise. It has a smooth jaw, so when used wisely it does not damage a nut or bolt. I've even used it to press in dowel pins in places where other tools can't reach.

de Macross Epique GT1, was featured on Jay Leno's Garage and it was at Goodwood 2012. I think it looks bad ass!

The Kadet B of a good friend of mine. He did a great restoration, even painting the thing! The color is Honda Goldwing Red, i doubted his choice, but the finished result looks damn nice.

Is a 3D printer an added value to your work shop? To start with...I'm an engineer so a lot of things that look easy or do-able to me, might seem difficult to others. Is 3D printing an added value for your garage? Simple answer : Yes! About a year ago, I started taking notice of the resolution of 3D printers, and of the ease of building one. after puzzling a bit to figure out what i want and need, i decided on a
