  • Oil Pump & Balance Shaft Removal | DR1665
    small sprocket top left is for the front balance shaft The rear balance shaft is bolted in behind the castle nut above the spindle lower right Balance shafts are also known as silent shafts as they spin opposite the crankshaft at double speed to neutralize second order vibrations for passengers Because A I ve spent time trying to help friends figure out which bolts go where on these things in the past and B it might be a couple weeks before I go to install the new oil pump on this engine I cleaned the bolts up nice put them in the box with the new pump and whipped up this picture which shows the location of each bolt overlaid on the picture above I arranged all the bolts on the floor next to each other They are all at the same scale relative each other Hope this helps someone click for larger image With the balance shafts removed I took a quick picture of them side by side The front can be completely removed but I m debating milling the rear down to use instead of the stub shaft included in my balance shaft elimination kit BSEK For those who aren t already familiar the front shaft is spun by a small belt that runs behind the timing belt If it fails it can take out the t belt potentially destroying the engine piston to valve interference Since the rear shaft is spun by the timing belt running a stub shaft to replace it can result in uneven wear on the pump internals resulting in metal debris in the oil supply Never a good thing Turning the counterweight down on a mill reduces the weight considerably while providing for a truer rotation in the bore Speaking of bores here s a look into the block where the front balance shaft was located Note the oil supply hole in the bearing between 3 4 o clock in the foreground This bearing will either be replaced or popped out and rotated to prevent a loss of oil pressure this balance shaft will not be re installed at all And here s a look into the block where the rear balance shaft is located One of the hardest parts of this job was removing the front case gasket This is one of the hottest locations on the engine as hot oil and coolant you can make out the round outline of the water pump at the top of the picture are pumped through the entire lump from this area These gaskets just get baked on After nearly an hour and two brand new razor blades ground down to dangerously dull edges it looks like this Still not clean enough for my liking so I ll probably take another blade and some acetone or something to everything before the new case and pumps are installed And here we have after my stopping point for the evening The oil filter housing is draining the

  • Salary & Benefits Are No Longer Enough
    These are rapidly shrinking pieces of the big picture considered by top performers We want to take pride in where we work We want to do things that matter Intrinsic motivators The onus is on the organization on management to make damn sure the work matters to people Not in terms of why the work matters to the business why it matters to the people doing the job Few people are so fortunate as to have the work be more important to them than the money Recognize individual efforts to improve acknowledge those who truly perform give them special access to additional information and ideas and trust them with the authority to do something with it What does success look like Success looks like the competition regularly making plays for our staff It s headhunters in the bushes ready to pounce on anyone they can talk to in the parking lot It s them offering ridiculous salary and benefit packages and everyone on our payroll cheerfully turning them down Why do top performers leave How do we do a better job of recognizing them before they do Kamil Kaluski on Focus What Fuels Passion Posted in commentary knowledge management Tagged

  • GPS: Useless Without a Destination
    to be Where am I GPS tells us exactly where we are at any given moment If only life came with GPS right We have to be just as specific about where we are as we are with where we want to be Deciding we don t like where we are is one thing explaining why and how we don t like it is something else entirely I just asked Google for directions to my house from Canada No dice How might the route to Phoenix differ between Vancouver and Toronto We need to be specific Where do I want to be Visualizing where we want to be is easier than where we are At least it is for me In fact it might be that figuring out where we want to be is what drives us to take that look around and figure out where we really are We ve got to visualize those future destinations What do they look like Why is that what we want How do things work there What do we have to do to make that vision a reality How do I get there from here Just like the GPS when we know exactly where we want to be relative exactly where we are figuring out the best route to get there is pretty easy Doesn t matter if we run into traffic or construction or mountains we can find alternate routes We zig and we zag but we never lose our sense of direction Are we there yet When we don t know where we really are we can t plot a route to where we want to be We re just wandering in random directions going with the flow hoping things will get better And if we don t know where we

  • Community Development: A Simple Content Strategy
    How did this strategy play out In our first week we made our three posts each the initial conversation starter plus one reply from the other two of us but we ended up with 15 total posts six of which were by people other than us So at the risk of inciting the wrath of Olivier Blanchard we calculated our ROI as follows 15 posts 3 posts 3 posts 400 ROI 6 posts by others 3 posts by us 3 posts by us 100 ROI ROI is in quotes here because as we re not yet tying this social activity to revenue this is not actual ROI Next steps We re very excited at how well this is playing out So far for every post one of us makes someone else in the company replies Will this trend persist Before the end of this week we ll be meeting again to come up with our conversation starters for the month of February We re also reaching out to various members of management whose staff would be part of this community to get their feedback on potential performance indicators we can keep in mind when brainstorming our new conversation starters What do you think Have you ever tried anything like this with your community development efforts What did you do differently How did things play out for you and your team Chris Barba on Perspective OKM 2 0 Posted in Behind the Firewall collaboration community knowledge management Tagged with Behind the Firewall collaboration community focus HowTo KM leadership meaning participation persistence process serendipity social media http mindadventure com rob Glad to see you are correcting and not protecting Brian For years I d feel upset if anyone told me I was wrong for any reason I was super sensitive to correction
