    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.

    Both carbs had bad bearings, which is why I had the throttle shafts out. I ordered new ones yesterday.

    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.

    Thanks guys.

    Hey Pete, where did you get those air filter spacers for the dellorto carbs? I totally forgot about that issue with the fuel fitting interference.
