Art... Thanks for the encouraging words.
Joe... I am not 100% sure but I think the spacer tube you are talking about is a sleeve that the steering shaft is going thru. I know someone that can probably answer that question for sure though. my plan was to use a tubing size one bigger that what I will use for my steering shaft and make it look similar to the 1:1 pic.
Bill... Thank you my friend. I can't wait to get the engine painted and onto some assembly with details to share with everyone.
Darryl... Thank you bud.... Man I wish I had the skills to machine everything and to be able to throw some nitro in the tank and have that bad boy fire right up and Cackle...lol
