    Nice Franz 👏🏼 Grey black?

    Shiny black.

    I love to watch Franz put these engines together and all the details to go into them.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Looking so good! Loving the touches Franz. Franz knows how to do it right. I cant wait to throw some motorcycles in the back of this thing and rip out to the desert!

    Stacking the engine. I got some zinc plated parts back from the plating shop. Old Bosch logo coil bracket, on a brand new Bosch blue coil. VW logos on the trimmed pulley and cylinder tins.

    I tried buffing some dirt out of the fan shroud and went a little too far. Cut into the sealer, so I sanded and repainted last night. Doh!

    Fit heater boxes to the wolfsburg tube cradle and welded the bends.

    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.
