Homemade Screw Tank #2 Drive/Chassis

Homemade Screw Tank #2 Drive/Chassis
welcome back to the conference crouton project  yes World of

Tank

s challenged me to make a

tank

s   on building a scrotum but they're good with that  they don't mind it there's like thirds I know we   have got loads of historically accurate

tank

s  in our game but we also like to have fun so in   the game as different Moses football this battle  royale you name it they're all good it's just all   about having a laugh now there's a link in the  description you

tank

s for free go   and support them they're supporting the project  and the project well we've got our two

screw

s now   we need a

chassis

we need a

drive

system that's  a lot to do I better get some stuff in an engine we got ourselves an engine  look at this boat a strange betta honda all of my best creations have  been powered by Honda's mobility scooter   Belgium right this way that's gonna sit back  I'll be up high obviously I'm not gonna
be   sat down here yeah so I'll have my seat up  against the back of that feet the front and   then I'll get the levers each side of me  right next thing we need to do we need to   work out how we're gonna get the

drive

  chains from these down onto the shafts hi captain Amy get namond amore Natalia okey-dokey so I've cut this out what this  is gonna do this flat bet it's gonna bolt   up underneath my

tank

chassis

and then the axle  to the

screw

is gonna go
through this bit now   it's simply bearings pretty hard got loads of  bearings and loads and loads of plate wheels   got some sprockets now this motor we're going  to go through this one and then the sprockets   are all tape alot ones so they've got like  a little collar inside them which basically   locks onto the shaft and then if we want to  change any of the sprockets change the gear   ratio just undo some grub

screw

s and swap it all  over so we need to better get
to this so we have   effectively gonna put some sides on this and then  make like an access panel one in the front one in   the top to get to the attention ER and there we  are that's the rear one the front one will be   exactly the same apart from it won't have a motor  in it just you effectively making our own funny   shape in a box section right let's get you all  welded up and then we can make a

chassis

corner put these little tags on here so  it kind of holds the
homemade screw tank 2 drive chassis
pride just   over the surface so when i weld ran the  front here I've got like a gap to fill   rather than a smooth joint because that  would be a lot stronger won't it colic No okay lovely jubbly that's done now there's  gonna be a cover plate which bolts onto the   frontier that I'll have another bearing in  which will slide over that axle and that   will keep it nice and rigid a chain tensioner  of course which would be like another sprocket   wheel on a
bearing which will push up on  that little slider and there's a little   access hatch in the top so we can get down  and tighten that up so that's the rear one   basket or the

drive

connected the front is  basically the same because it doesn't know   me you'll listen it doesn't have to be quite so  fat so then that one yeah just got two berries   right so we've got them there whose needs 

chassis

then we're gonna fix it to it hmm I let this light failed
already okay got  them on don't have put the front ones on   until I've got the

screw

s in position  but waiting for some bass doctor come   in so in the meantime I think I'm  gonna try and get the engine mount   and the seat mounted in position so you  can kind of see where all that's going oh really out this thing does work how cool is  this gonna look can't sit on there ah I'm just   contemplating with the engine and the seat can  come forward a bit I
don't know let's do that right so I've got me bar stock that's arrived  however the bushes have destroyed themselves   in me life but Bailey the people who supply  minister : don't worry about a new bushes   we'll get you an upgraded life which is  fantastic of them but I want to use my   life now so I've budgeted drill into the back  of it it sounds awful but at least I can get on ha the holes actually still line up okay real welded up now I've

rigged  it up to the hydraulic system I've   got under the bench the things which  runs me press so we can see it turn it now the hydraulic pump under the bench  has got nowhere near the flow rate that   our engine's going to give hence  White's too slow at least that's   what I'm hoping anyway right I'm happy  you chain tension system works well   spins nicely seems pretty solid now got  sort the other side out in three two one oh we got

screw

s we got a

chassis

it's pretty  solid we're probably gonna have to add more  

chassis

to this but I learned with the hover  bike just patience cuz I built the hover bike   yeah loads of bits of

chassis

on it and it won't  get off the ground I don't know if this thing's   gonna be too heavy so we'll give it a test  first and then we'll give it a bit of woohoo   I'm negative to the motor we go sideways we can  go that way and if I stand up on here this is   good
this is a good slide stop this one moving  he starts to turn that I was worried about hmm   carpet don't like it light mm

screw

tank

boy  okay next video hydraulics need to make an   oil

tank

got a plumb it all up set the valves  all up get it ready for testing now I should   be quite good at this really it's kind of  basically plumbing I used to be a plumber   bit different but there are no don't forget  of course our sponsor World of
