    Oh, see I didn't even know that. My fastest recorded run with the Eagle Tree is 118 mph and just about 29K rpm, so you're saying the hp peak could be say at 25K? So you want to try and flatten the HP curve past the peak and not have it fall off sharply?

    By "over-rev" do you mean you want to keep making decent torque past the HP peak? Why not just prop the boat to rev to the peak and not past it?

    What exactly were you looking for when you did your testing? Just greater peak HP? Flatter torque curves? More over run?

    Why did you melt the pistons? Too long a run up time?

    Is this it?

    Here's Dave's dyno after he modded it:

    I take all my measurements at 75% out from the C/L.

    Gonna use this type: http://www.lubriteindustries.com/downloads/drip-feed-oilers.pdf They have a needle valve to adjust the flow plus a sight glass and shut off. Was thinking I'd drill a small hole in the pillow block that holds the bearing with an outlet right at the back of the bearing in the ball area then attach these to the top. Probably leave the shield on the outside and remove the inner.

    Lohring can confirm this but our biggest motors might make 25-30 inch-pounds of torque, 13.5 Nm is about 120 in-pounds so that's not an issue.

    I was thinking the oil drip lube would have the least amount of friction (hopefully) making the power numbers more accurate, plus I'll be running closer to 30K and beyond if I test 21's and 45's. This will (of course) require a smaller wheel but I want that capability down the road. I'm hoping the one-way bearing will hold up, seems to be doing fine on my buddies dyno. I really, really like the idea that if the motor seizes suddenly the wheel can keep motoring, especially since I probably won't have as solid a table as yours. Also I wouldn't be real happy closing the throttle suddenly therefore shutting off lube to the engine and still have the wheel drag it along at 25K+ until the main clutch disengages at around 15K. That right there could cause a catastophe! Not sure if Dave is running a one-way or not, I'll ask him...

    Musta looked at the wrong part, that might work too!

    Probably would work but I don't see any keyways in it so not sure it that's what I need: https://www.gmnbt.com/product-view.htm?type=sc&product=55 Was thinking of going with this: https://www.vxb.com/CSK15PP-One-way-p/kit10968.htm The one way bering will be "after" the main clutch so power will get transmitted through it gradually until about 15K rpm or so then WOT for a 10-15 sec. pull. The main shaft will be 15 mm Thompson shafting and I plan to use WIB 6202 bearings through out with these drip oilers: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mulitple-OD-BSP-Brass-Sight-Gravity-Drip-Feed-Oiler-Lubricator-Hit-Miss-Engine/322652241011?var=511670253318 Wonder where the WIB's are coming from?

    Yup, that's one of Dave's older units, here's his latest (hope he doesn't mind me sharing!). I plane to build mine on a larger base (24" x 12" of 3/4" MIC 6 gauge plate) so I can clamp it to a fold up table to run outside, at lease when I use it as a run-in stand with the Byron fan unit attached instead of the inertia wheel. Wow, we sure jacked Dave's thread didn't we!

    Got any photos of it?
