Hi,

Something a bit different, but a dream machine: what else?!













Tapping, cutting, drilling…

Studs and gasket


















Preparing, checking, testing…
Few parts of the alternator.



did some work on the alternator.

All the threads are made, the studs and other threaded rods put to the right length, the parts separated from their supports and prepared...
The cables will be added to the lugs and terminals as soon as the painting is done.

Everything is tested to validate this sub assy and move on to another... or to painting.

Here are some pictures.













The assembly or rather the preparatory work continues.
This part of the kit, the intake, needs a bit of work.
It is necessary to be very careful to remove the part from the tree, to remove their imprint...







It's not a 45 DCOE, but it's WEBER!



The engine stand is progressing quietly.
The base is made of 4 square section tubes. They are welded to ensure more solidity.
The sturdy pieces are cut and bent to give them their final shape.
They will also be welded to the base.












The bends are now welded.
They are temporarily held on the structure with the Speed #8203;#8203;tape to give an idea.
The wheels will soon be assembled.









More soon.

Pascal

Good evening,

Adjustments and other blank assemblies continue.
The crankcase is installed on the block and equipped with some machined parts, the block with studs and bolts.
Tightening all nuts will remove all play/gap.









The engine mounts are also bolted.







The back of the block is positioned.




The engine is then positioned on its stand to adjust the dimensions and permanently weld the side and front supports.










More soon.

Good evening,


Let’s take a little height…
Left cylinder head test fit.
Its shaft cover is also positioned to validate the thread length for cap nuts/washers.
The seals (cylinder head and shaft cover) are not installed for the moment.

Hello,


The continuation of the left cylinder head.
Still under the blank assembly regime, various adjustments and small modifications.
A part is here, for example, quickly turned to make it easier for me to assemble the distributor, or we will ream the pulley hole to 6.1 for a better fit…





Here's the rest of the progress in pictures.
