Excellent build and great craftsmanship !! I can't wait to see it finished. Where were you able to got the 2.5 Ferrels for the weber carb stacks ? I am currently working on six cobras, for a car hauler load.
Great work. Steve Prideaux
Thanks for the encouragement!
I was able to find the ferrules from an electronic supply store. A bag of 100 was going to cost me about $3 but they shipped fed-ex which would have been in the $15 range. I called them direct and worked something out. Depending on where you find them (if your looking), you might want to give that a try. One other thing I learned, those little guys are a pain to cut. Even though they are tin-plated copper and cut easily with an xacto, the blade tends to wander. I clamped a piece of plastic rod, the largest that would fit into the ferrule, into my desk vise and used a un-cut carb as a depth guage to cut them. Then used a digital micrometer, my finger and some fine sandpaper to get them all about the same height. I messed up twice as many as I made so it was good I got lots of them...
Are you going to do a build thread on your team and will they be FIA or USRRC?
