    Waiting on paint to dry on the fan shroud today. So I assembled the brand new cb performance dual 40 Weber carb kit. Alodine coating on the manifolds linkage and air filters.

    Great looking motor.  Is that alodine finish the same product they use to get that golden color on old engine cases?  Does it do anything to steel?  I really like the look.

    Alodine is for aluminum and mag. It has chromium in it or something to help fight corrsion. Used on aircraft stuff.

     

    I’m ready for break-in tomorrow after we get some hose from the UPS truck.

    Break-in was awesome. Ran perfect. I adjusted the carbs, timing, and dropped the PennGrade oil while it was hot. Valve adjustments stayed almost the same, so I feel good about the cam wear.

    Ready to install.

    I got the CB Performance off road carburetor kit that came with red UNI air filters and idle jet air inlet extensions. I like it.

    Back on this one today. Spun and milled a e-brake cable pivot pin that was missing. D86B36D2-D133-40E5-9206-3D8A92D4CB6C3245E84C-D195-440E-8D1C-894BAF3711892AED4B01-9EE6-4AA5-AE8C-C4BDBA259F3BB2B0CC22-4C24-4326-8371-47F4DA5395D3F5183460-B349-43C6-950A-9D1677BE11DB

     

     

    Had to make a pair of e-brake cable extenders to make the small nut non-split  trans e-brake cables work. All bolt in now, no mods required when cables need replacing.9AA10CC2-29A2-470D-B79F-00518859731B8A6CEB38-BAFF-44C7-91B4-88B1773EFC76112F6938-32B7-4F66-A037-DEE6424A94A6

    Franz installed the late model beetle dual master cylinder were running and bent up the last couple hard lines as well. FEDC0684-90C0-4546-966A-D5773FC5FFE6

     

    We will build it if it comes.

    Nice work on the E-brake pivot.  Lathes and mills are cool tools. I like puttering on shit like that.

    Running into a few missing parts.

    Lever shocks. Do you guys know anybody who may have spares? We can get them rebuilt at Apple Hydralics in NY. Eveything for sale on samba is in Europe.

    Heater knob is a special piece. Kai has one listed on samba. Should we get it?

    I have some late 52 -early 53 zwitter lower shock mounts. We could make 1/4” plate uppers to adapt telescoping shocks?

    How about the heater knob? If I don’t hear from you guys this morning, I’m going to buy the one Kai has.

    Started on new ones.  Four down twenty to go.BD664787-9954-413C-8E2B-52C2F8E313E5

    Fourteen bends to make each one. 90644B84-FD84-4B3A-A718-EA153DC6812E1F3CFCB4-9C31-4618-AE4B-C2E1877216D53656B2B2-A33F-43AC-A95C-C0AEA5C1E9CECB31FF7B-86DE-4465-A717-97B3A08DAFCBCDB7A926-7F4E-4717-9CB8-4CAF7A26A7F869B053FF-ADDC-49AC-BCEE-221335787D6A16DFD33D-C828-4D01-B94D-206D2DE656A70F5FFF09-DAD7-43E1-A4FA-11F7F6662F297399AB13-D0CC-43AC-BDAB-483C67A6A6FDC3DB9152-482C-41DE-B71D-0CD03E3EA524F1B70FB4-ED82-42A6-8EA6-DD41BCDEA3FB58FA5291-0A73-4ABE-AB73-6550D9B98E933D491852-258C-46AC-800E-71C5231F14E49AF01AE2-1FBA-464B-8B2D-9460C11C9982
