super not secret common rail project
I'm making a common rail 7.3. I run cnc equipment and machine and rebuild all the popular diesels. plenty of common rail stuff comes on cores. im going to use 6.4 injectors by machining where the injector cup goes in the head and machine an adapter injector cup. 6.4s and 7.3s have same firing order so tuning it shouldn't be hard while running 6.4 computer, plus i have connections to tuners. I don't want to hear any waste of time/money, already been done comments, i want to show off/hobby. I would like to know the 7.3 hpop shaft diameter that the gear slides on. I don't need to the thousandth exact size, I'll figure that out myself. out of 30 cores, none of my 7.3s came with hpop this time. I want to start playing in solid works/ brainstorming. hoping the gear is smaller than a cp3 shaft so I can cut it to size and key it. then I'll weld up and machine the gear train to take it. alternative is building a platform off of gear train housing and running a 6.4s hpfp. not talking some hill billy hack job either, real clean machine work. I know they make belt driven pumps and I may run that but it's the easy way out.
