    I'd butt-weld it for looks but all I really gotta say is however you do it, this stuff..

    ...has rapped me 'cross the knuckles a few times, particularly on cold starts/corners, and crossing tacks. I wouldn't do a tank without it.

    Tanks for the memories?
    with my gear, precision rolls are not a likely result...

    what stopped me tonight is I need more clamps.... seriously

    drove it yesterday, this is too restrictive so went back to the old air filter

    you know the day is going to go bell up when you're using a razor blade to clean PVC off stainless. Basically it adds hours of refinishing because no matter how good you are, you'll scratch it..... and before someone pipes up 'ceramic - that scratches it too.... just doesn't last as long


    time to assemble the internal stuff - Hydramat


    I'm using a lot of parts I've had around... like the hydramat from the first fuel system


    Loren .... lap it or butt weld it?

    remember that the dies cost far more then the machine. These old machines are pretty much banned in commercial settings - so you get them for, basically, scrap value.

    I don't have 3 phase, I have VFDs. That said, the brake is run on a 220v air compressor motor.

    Gen V - one piece rear main seal, no fuel pump provision but flat tappet cam
    8.1 / 496 ?

    oh good grief...

    so I missed the last Autox to take advantage of an okay deal on an RV (for racing purposes). I get another notice from the Autox sponsors that another is coming up... the 19th.... I think "oof, that's about when our next chance of major snow" then "and on the 20th I go race the big track" Weather isn't certain but so far, I haven't been wrong in my long term forecasts....

    it's true... which is why I have Wanderer.... good for any Walmart or wilderness situation.... that said, I opened it up a day or two ago... it's a tad musty due to all the rain... that said, it's a great theft deterrent - smells like dead body.
