‘84 vf700f rebuilt carbs new tires ;)
We have most of the part required to build this fan up again but lots of conseqential damage.
need to identify the chicken and the egg. I'll get a look at the radial bearing today. I can't see it failing and allowing blade tip contact. I think it would overheat and seize before having enough radial play to fail blades.
We are going to install some instrumentation on another unit and run through start scenarios. We want to see if the fans run in the stall zone at any point. thinking failures might be accumulated fatigue damage from that. Theoretically they should not see it. Want to see how second fan starting interacts.
Doesn't stall happen at low speeds? I was wondering if the RPM remains the same but the blade angle changes to vary the flow. Also, I assume you have vibration transmitters on there? Just asking, I am no expert.
Yes constant Rpm. Blade pitch changes for fan pressure / flow. Stall can happen at any speed if angle of attack of the blade exceeds the ability for the air to stay attached to the upstream surface of the blade. But the area it is a risk for these fans is at the lower flow. Vibration transmitters not sensitive enough to show stall. We do have stall probes.
So we had a 3500 HP boiler axial flow, variable pitch, Forced Draft Fan self destruct a couple of weeks ago.
It happened once in the past. thought we had the appropriate checks in place but in hindsight it was not so.
I know its not motorcycles but thought you would be interested. Had alot more detail but found 420 character limit?
Holy Crap, you can't go to Walmart to find that either. It kind of sucks that Howden NA has bought up so many fan companies and they are so understaffed. I feel your pain.
I used to work for Howden as a Rep. I got beat daily by power plants trying to get parts. It took us weeks to reply sometimes.
Hello Capitan 80's. My name is Michel and I just sign up yesterday. Squirrelman told me you probably have an answer for me since you have a lot of experience with the VF. I am looking for the part number for the removable solo seat cowl for the VF100F. Also is that true it is the same as the VF750F? and lastly, do you need some kind of bracket to install the cowl? Thanks for your precious help. Best Regards. Michel

Getting an old '86 CF500F back into fighting condition
Hello! recently purchased a 86 interceptor 500 and looking to get carbs rebuilt by expert and my reading suggests you are the man. I collect/rebuild vintage HondaS (69 through 76) and these V4s are not in my wheelhouse. Only reason I bought this bike was that because it was my first road bike back in high school and my son wants to experience the thrill! You interested

Perhaps I'm missing something really obvious... my username continues to be Jasn Strashek even though I've made the change in Personal Details and it appears to save. I don't want my real last name on the forum and I'd like to use the username "THRASHEK". I'm also an insider (which should enable me to change my username). Can you please point me in the right direction?
