    Need to find out what a block is worth, a block of a lower grade for a CNC dry sump 700x220x70 was about 600 when I was looking. Also with out knowing what it is at all the brace between would be optimised, eg like a cross brace but I dunno if space does not allow it.

      It's a lower control arm. Nothing runs through the centre of the H so more crossbraces would be possible. Probably run 2 crossbraces rather than the one I have drawn in and flare them where they meet the two main beams (bit hard to describe, I'll do another award winning, detailed drawing)

      Also want "ALLMTR racing" machined in the back of them #wanker

        What are in the pivot points?

            U will need press fit tolerance also for those

              Got my verniers back today and the steel sleeves for those bushes are 26.7mm ID. I'd assume alloy would require the same tolerance?

                I would take 26.7mm to mean 26.7+0.04/ -0.05. That's a pretty loose dimension to get an accurate fit. You may need to get a bit more accurate dimension unless u are happy to have a very tight fit in order to guarantee interference.

                  You need to check up tolerances and fits, it will make sense once you get that.

                    The bushes seem to vary in ovality between 26.8 to 27 dead...

                    How much would the alloy expand by heating to, say, 200c?

                      If you are going to be using a heat treatable alloy you will want to be careful with how hot you get it as you will reduce mechanical properties.

                        Yeah it's not the first option. So what would it cost to get drawn up and who could machine it?

                          I don't know about the machining cost but you would be looking at a minimum charge of 1 hour for modeling the part and a detailed drawing. Do you want any FEA done on it, ie do you have any requirement for specific load rating or design optimisation? I'm busy this week but maybe next week.

                            I'll check with my engineer re FEA and dummy everything up to confirm dimensions.
                            Thanks for the help
                            Anyone got any recommendations for turning drawing into art?

                              There is a lot of places that could do it but I would suggest getting a fee things all drawn up and confirm how it will all work as I can see many things that will get missed if u just model up single items like that

                                Engineer said no to alloy lower control arms so that saves me some money
