Hi Zander,

the tensioner is not so easy, but the suspension can also easily build yourself what some have already done ....
One must simply start times

Colleague Pajak is also very handy in metalworking.

Today the chain tensioner is finished .

The first fact I have glued the brackets in and outside of the pan with a different adhesive on the plastic holds .

Obrázek

Obrázek

Outside the excess glue can be cut if this is just wonderful hard.

Obrázek

Here you can now see how far the axes then reach into the tub in order to support each other as practical without play.

Obrázek

And so the clamps are then finished inside . The terminal screws are hurting in my M4 mild steel , since this keeps the axes best without them.

Obrázek

Now the idlers come to the series. First, the axes of 4mm silver steel. The length I from a small washer and solder one end hard on . For this I put the washer on the end of an axis , moisten it with flux and put a very small piece of hard solder into the disc .

Obrázek

Then I warm the axis from below with a small gas torch until the solder clean axle and wheel connects .

Obrázek

Obrázek

Then the idlers of the series were . I first drilled with a 6mm drill.

Obrázek

In this hole a 6mm brass rod is glued in and controlled erwärtmt .

Obrázek

So I can turn off after 10 minutes and drill a 4mm shaft .

Obrázek

Obrázek

After I montert the axes and the idlers had assembled again , the chain can be adjusted track . This works easiest with two aluminum bars inserted into the drive .

Obrázek

Obrázek

Then I took care of the motor mounting plate . First makiert the positions for the cutouts and then opened with a small blade plate . So you can adjust the suspension now fitted with gearboxes.

And Today the reconstruction of the Tiger is ready ...

But first I have to screw the engines in the new steel gears.

Obrázek

Then I first the joy that once again only a single screw is a screw on the mounting plate and this is also about 1mm too far inside.

So the file out a hole slightly , and a second mating hole in gear and mounting plate attached to the I then cut a M3 thread .

Obrázek

Obrázek

Obrázek

Thus , the transmission and now sits just at the right place .

Obrázek

To check the chain again used a track bar.

Obrázek

Before mounting two tracks Loctite on the mounting plate .

Obrázek

So the transmission does not shift so much and still goes well again .

Supports where the axle I do not screw again . The old holes do not fit anymore and when I put the screws firmly wedged it gladly and clamps the axle. So I have my glue method. First, I need a piece of wrought epoxie .

Obrázek

Side of the tub I paint a thick layer of Pattex .

Obrázek

Then I push the support bearings on the axle lightly oiled and put a ring on Knetepoxie the camp.

Obrázek

Then I Stülpe the countershaft cover and press on the swelling clay with a screwdriver inside of .

Obrázek

But the bonding surface has to dry overnight before being charged , then it holds but is also outstanding and to get back on anyway.

So I can then drive the wheels and the strut on the gear units .

Obrázek

Yet set the suspension and checked the chain track one last time.

Obrázek

Obrázek

The chain is a little short. With the chain tensioners I am at vordesten stop so the idlers are very high, but that may change its owner then quite quickly .

Obrázek

So far everything is ready now and tomorrow goes back to its owner.
