I buffed the aluminum parts on the top of the engine with the ultra fine foam pad, to get rid of the "shine".

Used a nylon bristle, detail brush to scrub down the fins on the face of the heads.

This looks better to me.

 

Also need to further refine the way the header tubes flow against the side of the block.

A new friend I've made through the slammers club, saw my post on the magneto a couple of pages back & sent me these.

Thank you!

 

The alternator is a 3 piece item, making it easier to detail & short enough to mount on the top of the engine in front of the 3 carb setup.

Also added a 4spd to the mix & still in process of adapting the bellhousing to fit it.

Built an aluminum distributor & fitted it to the front cover.

Since deciding to use the 4 spd, the stock crossmember will be replaced with a tube style.

Squared up the frame & stuck it to poster paper...laid out & verified a centerline.

Fitting the tube pieces to the frame while working off the centerline for a visually balanced result.

Happy saturday to all.

 

A mock-up to see how it's all fitting.

If I go with the original triangulated radius rods, I'll design the front driveshaft hoop as a structural unit & attach them there.

May go 4 bar...don't know yet.

Thanks, Bill.

 

I neglected to install the frame tabs for motor mounts before spraying the base coat of black on the frame.

They'll get blacked out when I do the final topcoat.

Motor mounts & frame tabs have been drilled & aligned with pins...later to be replaced with mineature bolts.

Trans tailshaft is still right on the centerline.

Tubes across the center are temporary spacers until I get everything fitted together.

As you are spending time researching and scaling all the components, I think the headers should be scale 1 1/2" which would be a common size for that engine.

They look a little too small. Just an observation. :)

Looks good so far.

Thanks for the comments, David.

I agree...been bugging me since I bent them, just haven't purchased the proper sized wire yet.

 

Been missing seeing your work...how've you been?

Finally got the alternator on the engine.

This is my third go at the mounting fixture.

First one I worked in too thin of material & it looked unrealistic when held on the engine.

Second one just got in a hurry & it had a totally unbalanced look about it.

Think this one will work ok.
