Woodruf key is easy to clean and remove.used only for binding.splined shaft has more contact area and used for power transmission.

@sanjayrai55 sir
Cheaper and easier to make.
Can do power transmission too.
In my Royal Enfield Ensign 150cc (1956), the clutch housing is mounted on a tapered shaft and keyed with a Woodruff key.
Only problem is the key shears if the nut is not locked TIGHT.
Carried a Woodruff key in my wallet for many years.
(Along with a Horlicks bottle in the knapsack to collect the oil when opening the clutch cover)

Well can't afford a Triumph Tiger, and this being a model engine thread so you can leave that guess.
Thunder Tiger.. The only one I have is their early production 19 with a cross flow scavenging and baffled piston. And not considered very attractive or collectible or even usable.
Super Tigre ..... I must confess I have none

Here's one.
Hasn't been taken off the cupboard top in more than a year due to electrics.
Maybe fly glow this Sunday.
Must spit and polish before then.
There's a story behind this engine...

Yup, saw the trainer in your ''mess'' picture. What is it? A PT 40?

Yes I know, and think this thread could possibly be the single thread with highest view, but unfortunately with the current electric wave, the interest in engine and engine design is fading.

The roar of engines Indian Rupees, the charm of engines Wink, the mess of engines Shocked, the head aches with engines Angry and the challenges >Cheesy are enjoyed by only a few now a days. Old timers may still do Bow Bow, but the conveniences with the electrics definitely influences even the die-hard engine fans.  Thumbs Up (Contrast from what is going on in their full size cousins - like in the automobile world - the shift becoming inevitable here).

We should agree, that majority of the population(US) were inspired and took this hobby after seeing a engine based plane in flight, not a Dumb electric plane.
At least i do.

Time for update on the promised Tiger. My example is lightly run on the bench, LNIB OT Mk III, 2.46cc.

So here you go with the pictures.
1. The bible for Oliver Tiger engines. Good read and highly recommended if you love OT diesels
2. The box views
3. Instructions

An OT advertisement, and lastly how about showing off your OT? Put it on the bonnet of your car Smiley

And if you are interested in some OT MK III reviews, refer these. The second link also talks about works modified engine, as in my case.

Coming up next is Norvel 25. I had earlier posted the two Norvel 40's. This one is pretty much same except in displacement.
