Default Krw line bore

Has anyone made an adjustable line boring bar that fits the KRW bed plate for Model T? We have the bed plate, false cam and would like to get this thing going.
Thanks!

You might look at this link unless you already have. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages...tml?1291584381


From most of the stuff I've read about the KR Wilson equipment is that it will require a reamer to do the finish work. They wanted a machine that anyone could do the job with but the bar wasn't all that accurate for the average mechanic to do any finish work with. Modern Tobin ARP stuff would make the job easier for production work. If your just doing a few then the KR Wilson set up was OK but time consuming and you have to have all the parts to do the job.

Thanks jetmek, I will have to just make one. I can use the rough bore bar as my basis. Was hoping for an easy solution!lol.
Rotorwrench, thanks, lots of info there. We have Kwikway already so will tie that in to what we make.

From what I understand, the Kwik Way bar is pretty close in diameter to the Model T main sizes. I assume you want to use the KRW stuff to get you alignment off the cam so you can do a model T. Maybe someone like Kohnke Rebabbitting would have some pointers. He posts on this and the Model A forum from time to time.

I think the kwikway bar is too big(maybe) the KRW bar is like .936 dia . If you decide to go that route, I can get you dimensions from mine so you don't have to guess. Unless your only doing STD cranks the reamer isn't going to help much even if you find one that's not dull as a hoe. I can get mine to within 1-1.5 thou and hand scrape them from there. A lot of work? yes but the fit and time gear mesh is right on...

I’m going to modify the KRW roughing bar to have adjustable cutters like the KW. I will use the KW transmission for rotation and feed. The KW bar is too big and I want to use the KRW bed plate for proper alignment and support.

You should be able to use your Kwik-Way on a Model T Block, with a little Re vamping.
