    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.

    whats the advantage or benefit of a design like this? Stronger pull?

    Wow it has come a long way since I was there a month ago! I might be in the area next weekend and might have to come by and see it in person.

    The idea is that the air spins around the filter as it enters the housing. The dirt gets slung to the outside because of its weight and falls down/out.

    I don’t know….Mostly I was after something to keep the filter dry and shielded.

    Your aluminum welds look amazing Franz! This shit hurts my brain. I absolutely love it though! Not another one like it!

    Mounted with 4 weld nuts, and a clip on the inside. Also welded a 3/4″ tube to the elbow union for case breather.

    I think that is it for major engine fabrication. I’m passing the torch to Peet. Ready for more install plumbing and wiring.

    I did the easy stuff. Connect A to B.

    Peet is doing the hard stuff now. Its a one thing at a time affair…but you have to think about everything before you can do anything. AC lines before wiring.

    The receiver/drier had a ton of oil and die in it. With a nice metallic shimmer. We’ll have to flush the system and get couple new parts.

    That’s something I’ve never messed with. Guess I should pay attention in case I ever need to.

    Pats making headway. The wiring is getting full pin-out/color schematic so that we (and anyone else) will be able to work on it. We’ll have to make a folder of information on this machine to keep with it. All the important part numbers and model/years for everything.

    I need to get better with my electrical/wiring knowledge. This will be a good place to start I guess? haha  😉  😉

    Looking good!
