Re: Welding on crane boom

Hi BP, Thanks for your reply, especially on a Sunday! Just trying to get my powder dry for a Monday morning opening salvo on the crane group and Superintendent! To explain a bit better where I did not before. The new wire guides will be welded to doubler plates, which themselves have to be welded on...

I am looking to change wire guides on a knuckle boom crane, on the actual knuckle boom itself. This will involve welding 6 x 150mmx150mm pl...

Re: Wartsila L32 Camshaft Drive Backlash

Cheers Merlyn, nope end float is taken already using the method you mentioned. Don't have the spring set up you mention, sounds like the mechanical overspeed set up on a Bergen KRG though.....

I remember watching the 'tugs' thinking they were no more than a bathtub with a phone booth atop! The skipper of one of them barely fitted in the wheelhouse. We has a 2500hp bow thruster...

The reason I knew of it was due to a picture early on in the site's history of Weaver Arrow arriving in Port Alice, BC. It was her first and only (I think) visit there and I w...
