Some Really great builds being posted up here....

...Dave, that Rav4 is insane, and Scale Master, I love the Opel GT !

This thread is right up my alley. Here's some of my scratch built engines:

OS Giken TC16-MAII (Datsun/Nissan L18 based block)

Posted Image
Posted Image

Some of my Toyota "T" block engines (2T-G, 2T-C), and a 22RE (Celica/truck)

There are a lot more in the works...I just havn't finished fabricating them up yet.

Where are you getting all the Weber Carbs from??? Those are impossible for me to find!

Well Jason, they are not Weber carbs...they're Mikuni/Solex 40PHH Type T on the Toyota motors, and 44PHH Type S (standard Nissan OEM replacemnt carbs) on my OS motor. They are resin copies of my own master. I'll eventually get around to making Weber DCOE sidedrafts, and IDF downdrafts as I have a few projects planned that will require those carbies. All of the engines I post are scratchbuilt by me.

Posted Image
Please overlook the top set of carbs...they were an earlier attempt at making them. I wanted to show the evolution of my fabrication work. Unfortunately, Uncle Sam decided to take away my summer vaction, and temporarily relocate me from tropical Okinawa Japan, to not so tropical Anchorage Alaska :D I should be back sometime next month if you are interested.

Also, I thought I'd post up a few of my in-progress 4 bangers:
