Not much to show just yet, but it’s starting to look really good. Spent yesterday working on carbs and heater boxes.
6volt backing plate, voltage regulator modified & mounted to a 12volt generator, Porsche oil filter bracket, and repainted Bosch blue coil with a vintage bracket.PeteParticipantAugust 29, 2019 at 7:00 amPost count: 769

Nice. I sense being very close to a you tube video of that beast firing up………FranzKeymasterAugust 29, 2019 at 4:25 pmPost count: 2858
Both carbs had bad bearings, which is why I had the throttle shafts out. I ordered new ones yesterday.DarioParticipantAugust 29, 2019 at 4:57 pmPost count: 394

Working late tonight to finish.
I am so happy…This engine is badass. The best vintage look 1914cc I can do. All original tin of various years, most importantly 61-62 stale air heater boxes… I also like that the fan shroud has the recess for the stock air filter to let you know that its original. Super time consuming engine build. 80+ hours on tin fit, paint, and assembly. The stale air heater boxes work best on a 1914cc because of the head-to-head width..I suppose a 2276cc could be done with some pain in the ass butt weld extending.
I’m waiting on the throttle shaft bearings to run. That’s it.BodgocoParticipantAugust 30, 2019 at 11:17 pmPost count: 54
