    It seems to me that the forces of this being bolted/coupled to something else were the issue. Something in which they used flat head screws to "locate" an item or keep it aligned perfectly, that's the job of a dowel pin, I don't see dowel pin holes.

    It probably sheared the bolts before, or wasn't aligned right to begin with and then after it was hardened, they counter sunk the bolts to help align things, almost like it had broke before.

    Just like your 3wheeler cases, 2 dowel pins locate the cover and the bolts merely hold the case tight to the center case. Whats another way to try to locate it? Taper the holes and use flat head cap screws/bolts.

    If you didn't use dowel pins, your kickstarter wouldn't line up and you'd shear the bolts off in time...

    Just a thought Cool stuff El!!

    Still waiting for my call back from the FAA. Typical government department. Good thing I wasn’t reporting something more serious.

    I agree with you about the bolts failing once before Steve and maybe it was annealed and rehardened, but I disagree about the part needing dowel pins. To me those teeth are there for adjustment pourposes in relation to other parts that thing coupled to. The machined rings around the disc along with the teeth would be sufficient to hold the parts together without pins.

    Junk bolts, over tightening, or a lack of thread sealer that allowed a bolt to come loose and get between the part and split it are my guesses as to what went wrong.

    It’s definitely not Men in black worthy, but it would be lawyer in black suit worthy if it would’ve hit somebody.
