Kozo K27 Link Support and Crosshead Guides



This segment will cover the link support and crosshead guides. In this shot the link support is seen below the running board level and supports the arced link block. The crosshead guides run from the bottom of the link support over to the cylinder.



The initial machining of the link support outer plates has been completed. These were machined as a pair by bolting them to a plate and cutting the arc with the arc function of the DRO. These will be machined further once they have been soldered to the other pieces. June 14, 2020.


The initial machining of the link support inner plates has been completed. These were also machined as a pair to cut the arcs and notch. June 26, 2020.


These are the rear blocks for the link support. The outer plates above will be bolted to the tabs on the one end and the inner plates will fit into the groove seen on the lower block for soldering. Note that the top block is oriented to show the back side. Once soldered together the link supports will be further machined as an assembly to get rid of the tabs and bolts to look more like a casting. June 26, 2020.
