Brief Description:  Installed Hub and Crankshaft Timing Gear

My friend Mark(Onex 35) needed his crankshaft timing gear, bearings and prop hub installed so we used the same process I did for mine earlier in the week. The picture below is the oven I made out of some old scrap steel I had behind the shop. The heat source is the gas burner that I normally use for deep frying turkeys. Having the part heated right next to where you are going to put it on makes the installation easier. Also having the crank in a cooler with dry ice at the assembly location also reduces your chance for error. The main thing to remember is it is not a good practice to apply direct heat from an oxy/acetylene torch or propane weed burner to any component you are trying to heat up.
