Caterham's are such cool cars.  Just a little too claustrophobic for me I guess :lol:   Your commitment to detail and the ability to accomplish it is outstanding.  I do enjoy this thread

The front areas of the both sections of the head have been finalized and more details have been added to the front of the block.  Still more to build for the front of the block and some clean up needed on the head parts before texturing.

Here’s the water pump and the thermostat housing dry fitted…

I got a good start on the oil pan, made out of mostly styrene, and one piece of brass.

And the oil filter mount…

Also got more of the oiling system added to the block…

There is just something exciting and beautiful about cutting up metal and plastic. Masterful job Mark!

Thanks guys!

 

This will be the bell housing.  I made the flange from .020 sheet styrene and drilled some of the mounting holes in it and the back of the block.  The housing is PVC schedule 40 pipe.

I shaped the housing and added the bulge for the starter…

Mark -

It is coming together nicely!  I really like the plastic work.  Are you machining the flat pieces or cutting and filing?

Thanks guys.  It is good old cutting, filing, sanding and hand drilling sheet styrene.  I used the lathe for the bell housing, but that was freehand filed while it turned.

It is mostly done, it still needs a mounting point for the transmission.

Here is the gearbox section of the transmission, more styrene construction.  I need to make the trans before I can make the receiver section for the bell housing.
