And a few more progress pictures showing a few other items of interest. Since the engine is now mounted, I plumbed up the gas lines to the rear mounted fuel pump.
Next up is the metal dash / bracket that will hold the steering box and tach. The center hole is for the steering box and the tach one is yet to be punched. Showing front and back. Tabs will be glued to the underside of the frame crossbar. This will get some cleaning up and removing the burrs.
And finally I built a handle for the right side of the cockpit from a heavier gauge printing plate.
That's all for now. I was planning on working on the seat belt but I see they were grey in the original so I need to see if I can find a grey Sharpie. The work continues. Thanks for following along.
Finally some concentrated bench time and a number of small things worked on and a few completed. First up is the gas pedal. I had made an extra when I build my Altered Ego project so all I had to do was mount it in place. As you can see, its made entirely from printing plate. I also wired up the linkage to the Holborn injectors. Still need to work on the return spring. Here's a couple of pictures. The first two show the pedal and the last one shows the linkage.
OK...I know its not much of an update but for me, it is. Here's a few pics of the side mounted oil filter that I redid. Its all made of concentric aluminum tubing pieces and an aluminum rod for the center with the top ends polished. Much improved from the previous one.
