The engine has been installed a final time.
A bit earlier than I had planned since once I had shoehorned it in to check the fit with the steering box, I decided to leave it.
I made a set of Fel-Pro intake manifold gaskets…
The front (Koni) shocks were fabricated from brass tubing and installed.
The sway bar (fabricated from aluminum at the original start of the build) was painted and installed… It is yellow (and the trans crossmember is red) because those are the colors on the big one.
The metal caps on the spring were made from metal ducting tape/foil, (not duct tape). Still need to make and add some hardware… A little additional weathering has been built up too.
The pulleys and belts are installed. I machined the alternator (underdrive) pulley, water pump and crank (dual groove) pulleys from aluminum. Added the alternator fan too. Mounting hardware is machined aluminum and the spacers are brass. Belts are vinyl.
Wiring loom for alternator is wrapped wire dipped in white glue.
Also plumbed the fuel line up to the front carb and am in the process of installing the remote oil filter system. Lots of hose clamps to be made…
… (Several parts here mocked up for fitting of the core support/radiator/fan shroud.)
