Next I'm waiting on my mill, lathe, drill press, and bench sander to arrive. That's kinda holding up the show.
Been thinking about the tilt system, being that this motor will inevitably hit immobile objects I need to allow slip of the system, a single acting system
won't let it jump up and over stuff. If it does give it'll form vacuum "bubbles" inside and may pull air past the piston seals.
Then that gave me the thought, maybe air is the solution?
It does compress unlike fluid, but to use only air, I'd need a "pusher" cylinder much longer or rather larger in diameter than the lift cylinder to compress the air to the point it would push
the outboard up, the air however would continue to gain pressure until it reached the apex of the pivot and the engines weight teetered.
I may come up with a way to add in check valves and an accumulator to solve this problem, need to get to work...
