It looks like Pro/E

I would imagine a ring and pinion set up would be a lot more difficult than the oil pump. To do the oil pump i need a special machine, not special tooling set up and thats where alot of initial cost will be.

i volunteer to try it out in my car since i'm already in the market for an oil pump... if it works i'll pay what a new one would cost me... if it doesn't, no problem.... atleast it will aid you in further research.

shoot me a pm...

The drawings are at the machinist. I am waiting for an estimate. Sorry I have updated. We just finished our busy season and I was in vegas to celebrate being done.

As soon as I hear from the machinist I will let you guys know.

got the quote back, were looking at 305 per gear per set of 10. Im sorta disappointed by the price. I think there are some features we can remove from the drawings, but for exact copies we are looking at 305 a gear (plus shipping)

In the end of August, I could check out with the teachers of machining course of the school where I did my welding course. It could be far less expensive than a machine shop.

Holy ****!!! It is still better then the alternative though.
What is making it cost so much, the cryo and/or shot peeining, or the actual machining?
Let's get more quotes for sure as per Ben. Think we can get at least 20 people in? I'll bust my *** trying to get more, like 30-40 at least if we can get this thing off the ground.

Email me the drawing to marc 'at' m-tuned.com and let me know what materials you want. I'm certain I can get it done a lot cheaper than that.

just pick any machine shop and ask them. we use www.copeseticinc.com

email [email protected], tell him you heard of him from Matt @ NVIS, tell him what you want and send the drawings. They might be reasonable.
