Tutorial: How-To make Turbochargers

Message par 528-Hemi le Dim 21 Aoû - 18:22

Turbos it is! Here for all to see! So, what do you all do if you need/want a Turbo thats not made, either in plastic, or resin? WELL heres what I do!

Notice, the spool of solder? This is the Turbo Turbine, and Blower parts, there are 4 of them. 2 per turbo (remember this is a TWIN-Turbo set-up). The brass "Turbo center", VERY important for a set up like this keeps EVERYTHING on the same horizon to the engine as long as your exhaust headers are horizontally even. Side to side mounting is VERY important too, it must be long enough, cut it a bit "long" trim when all together.....


Notice the solder is bent tightly around that brass pipe? This is how ALL of this will be made! The brass is left "long" and will be trimmed a bit and then trimmed again, later as you'll see! NOT glued at this point. A bit more has to be done first!

Notice the '57 300's engine setting here, the brass has been trimmed BUT not "short" it will need trimmed to length one more time! ALWAYS allow for mistakes!
You see 4 of the solder made parts, 2 Exhaust turbines, 2 turbo blowers....

Now for some details. Turbo "flange" ring material.....THIN solder!


This shows HOW I made those really little Turbo "flange" rings to fill the void on the set-up.

So, now to continue.....I got one side "started" BUT be careful, you must leave some on one end or the other specially when doing tins side-by-side...


Notice where the Turbo "Flange" ring is in the picture, its labeled, but, it also hides where the solder exhaust turbine meets the turbo center.....These rings? need to have 2 PER turbine intake or power, so in the center, it will have 2 side-by-side.


Seen here is the 2 rings BETWEEN or pinched in from the 2 turbine parts, this completes ONLY ONE SIDE!

For posing sake, here is the left-hand side done, awaiting the right hand side.... Right-hand side to come! Stay tuned!
Again, more to follow!

So now off to the right-hand side of the turbo set up......

Notice, the WHOLE right-hand side set-up is LOOSE! You HAVE TO, get the distance just right on the outer most Exhaust Turbine.....Once that much is set and glued in place, you can go on to assemble it with super glue (CA)....


NOW I'm sure all of you who don't know are wondering where does the exhaust go? (IT POWERS the turbine, which spins the turbine to blow clean air into the engine! BUT the exhaust is just that, it comes out the CENTER of the Exhaust Turbine:


Yet again, more to follow!

THEN for those people, who are learning......The air intake is in the middle! CENTER of BOTH turbo's! See:



Now this center air intake? It can have a short pipe topped with a K&N air filter, OR can go to something that comes in from the hood, the grill, you name it, FRESH AIR IS BEST! NOT "heated" air from inside the engine compartment!
These can be made ANYWAY you need them too, I just made them fit a car that was lowered, to the ground a bit, AND no holes in the hood! For yet another monthly contest! Hope you enjoy!
Parts List:
> > 1/8th inch thick Solder.
> > .062 inch "Thin" solder.
> > 1/8th inch Brass OR Aluminum pipe "Tubing" -STRAIGHT (NOT curved stuff or bent).
> > 5/32nd inch Aluminum Tubing (For turbo connection "Collars".
> > Choice of favorite CA type glue.

Thanks Franck! Notice in this tutorial that its the SAME engine thats in my '57 Chrysler 300C!!!! This shows the engine a bit better!!!!

NOW, a question? IF your interested in seeing how that WHOLE car was built, post it somewhere.... I'll get a whole tread going on its assembly, as I made it! (I have an entire thread on my builds typed out on the computer that all I have to do is copy & paste.

thanks for sharing this "How to", Franck is making turbos too, it would be nice to put his version ...

"Franck est en train de fabriquer lui aussi des turbos, ce serait bien qu'il mette sa version..."

Hey Fred,
Question, you know, I JUST Thought of something, do you know how to "write" in pictures like I did? I can't "translate them for those that can not speak English! And I don't want to seem "rude", BUT I myself can not speak French OR I would translate it for re-posting! Let me know, I may attempt on figuring out HOW to translate what I wrote in each picture, in French for those who can not read English!

No matter with the little words on your pictures! don't worry about that!
I think the translation is more important for larger text like coms or explications.
You said your google translate version don't afford you to translate english ---> french! WTF!! in our version we have the choice between many languages....

So if it's a problem for you to translate, let it in english! the guys who are interested in your job will make the effort to translate themselves! Wink Wink

Thanks Fred! I thought I'd mention it. Yeah my Google translate, does it automatically, nothing I have any control over........ or so it seems I haven't yet tried to look and see if I have a choice!
