Cool Welcome to the forum

Hi fabrun

welcome to the forum

That is a nice bit of cad work

I admire folk who have the savy to use cad software .......I have plenty available but it confuses the hell out me

Well done

It's missing the engine bay brace

Seriously, nice bit of CAD work. I only really do 2D. Have used Inventor a few time, very powerful.

Never used Solidworks

thanks for all

Is solid works the one that allows you to set the materials and then you can do strain/stress/shear tests etc?


yes solidworks can do this but never try it before

as i live in france, it's left hand drive

i'll finish it and i will share, no problem

3d cad is not very difficult (because solidworks is very powerful and have nearly no limit), what impress me it's that all of you do in your real life with a real construction

Fabrice,
Nice bit of work, i have also done most of my car in Solidworks, its an excellent program...
In regards to the stress stuff, pretty much all software does it but its an Addon that you need to pay for.. So personally never seen it on solidworks....
Nice Job
Ed

Question Lhd

Hi to everyone,

I have just got the book and after scanning through the forum was amazed to find the 3d cad for a LHD Roadster. Thank you to Fabrun awsum work. As you can see by my profile I live in Germany and am thinking about building a LHD.

From the 3d I can see that TR5 is on the opposite side but what about the transmission tunnel does that have to be altered as well, ie swoping TT2 and TT3, TT9 and TT11, TT10 and TT12 and the angles changed accordingly?

I have got a Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 16V, 90BHP. Does any body know if this engine can be married to a Sierra G/box?

Would it make a difference to the SVA if it was LHD?

Any advice is much appreciated

Regards
John

welcome to the forum John,

yes indeed Fabrun,s cad work is stunning indeed

the TR5 rail can be put on the opposite side but this also depends on which engine you fit as to whether you can fit TR5 at all, my engine install doesn,t allow it to be fitted (cvh engine).

Not sure if the engine you mention will fit/ mate with a ford box, don,t know anyone using that engine either.

good luck with your poss future build.

cheers
andy
ps. my sister used to live in your town

I'm sure you could cut the mounting flange off the bell housing and weld another on. Mounting a ford pressure plate on another fly wheel is easy enough with the right tools ie a lathe and mill. Would it not be easier to just put a ford engine on a ford box? I don't dougt that it can be done it depends on wether you want to spend time ,money or both?
