At last after 3 years I have the reduction drive sorted and running on the ZDZ 210. It can be viewed on my time line on face book or YouTube under ZDZ 210. I will sort out the picture sizing and post them later.

I finally got time to resize the images I had of the drive build. This is the drive coupling I designed for the drive assembly to take all of the side load off the engine front bearings along with its purpose to push the engine back onto the firewall.

This is the assembly built up. The back mount plate took some making as ZDZ's machining of the rear mount was not concentric with the centerline of the engine and I had to use cam bushes to true it all up. since the initial runs which were very impressive I have not found the time to manufacture the exhaust to do the full running in of the engine.

After another factory unit move in 2019 I have more space to get on with the bigger projects I have on the go. The Spitfire is now on her wheels and the engine fitted. I am looking to get her test flown later in 2020
