Drilling 36hp flywheel for 8 dowels


I need to drill a 36hp flywheel for 8 dowels. SPG pattern, 6mm dowels.

Any ideas?

Greg

I don't know if this fits the 36HP crank but you would need a jig unless you are very good at marking out.

The only jigs I've found (including that one) are for the bigger dowels. I need to drill holes for 6mm dowels.

Looks like I may have to make one!

Do you have access to a milling machine and dividing head.
