The coolant expansion tank had the wrong size connections and restrictive reducer fittings. I cut and welded a small 1″ tube through the box into a 1.5″ tube so that hopefully there isn’t too much swirl while running/filling.unkParticipantJanuary 24, 2018 at 12:28 pmPost count: 198
Man. There is always a demon ur chasing on this project. I always laugh about this job. For every little set-back you see, it would set back the normal weekend guy a month to deal with…….. Thank god its at KCW or this project probably would take 5 years to do…..or it just wouldnt’ get finished.
Cant wait to see the video of the engine running on this one. Keep at it boys. Nice job.FranzKeymasterJanuary 24, 2018 at 7:09 pmPost count: 1531
Thanks Tom. Yeah, plenty of problem solving on this one.
I made a coolant crossover pipe today. 1″ X .065″ steel. I hope its large enough. Boxeer looked to be using 1″ aluminum. Welded and ground beads on the ends to retain hose.VwfoolParticipantJanuary 24, 2018 at 8:54 pmPost count: 166

These two guys , Peet and Franz… are doing some really really GOOD work on this rig, solid, meant to last, although, meant to be serviceable!!!!! Everything over built, and well thought out….. They have to work on f’ed up and rigged shit all the time… and I assure you… if this unit ever breaks, and needs work… the mechanic on duty will be happy to see how this rig was built…. 😉 This project is well out of my skill package and knowledge base. 😉FranzKeymasterJanuary 29, 2018 at 9:19 amPost count: 1531
Finalized thermostat housing/connection. I used panel bond to temporarily attach the mounting tabs. I will be able to tack weld them perfectly, then remove the glue and finish welding.

Big ol job Franz. But it’s going to be nice when you’re done. ?FranzKeymasterJanuary 31, 2018 at 8:25 amPost count: 1531
I fully welded those tabs on. Another piece done. The panel bond trick worked great. I think JB weld quick would have dried faster and done the same thing though.
I’m onto the air filter mounting and fitment today. Its jammed into the corner where it’ll get plenty of clean cool air from the scoop/vent behind the window.ColeBParticipantJanuary 31, 2018 at 9:23 amPost count: 634

Everything on this rig is hand made …. this project could not be handled by better guys… they don’t exist… you guys are rockinging it!!FranzKeymasterJanuary 31, 2018 at 8:46 pmPost count: 1531
I made a centrifugal air filter housing today. Jazzed on it. I need to put some deflector fins and dirt drains in…but I think its going to work.
