I am not a experienced machinist, so i am working a bit slow.
But the fins are the hardest part to machine of, if you go to fast the fins brake and your knife brakes.
But yeah you can only do small cuts at a time.
The mills are not mine, a friend of mine has a ship diesel engine repair shop.
But it is fun to do. Like to do that stuff myself.

Got the cylinders machined to fit the headstuds, I think this is the hardest part of machining to get the cylinders to fit the case.
It is difficult to find a long cutter to do the whole hole in one go.

Got the head fitted, some small adjustments to the hole for the head studs, so the cylinders fit and can move freely.
So one step further. Must say, happy at the moment.

Thanks Frallan, but they are not the raceware, they are the 12.9 bolts, you see for sale some times on here.

Goodday,

Can somebody tell, at what horsepower level you need a bigger fuel line (8mm) on carburetors.
And maybe how you notice this, if possible.

Thanks in advance

Hi Eddie

I am not sure there is a exact hp level, to many variables but 1st sign is usually fuel starvation in 4th gear under hard acceleration

Berg wrote he had no problem with the stock pump and fuel line/IDAs untill the car went into the 12s
that being said, its easy to mount a new 8mm line when the car is off the pan (and a second one because one might go FI in the future)

That is now, because pan is converted to IRS and off the body, so might as well do it now.

Hmmm maybe started a bit to late this year or the work is far more work than I anticipated.
Trying to make it to EBI this year, off course
Got the floorpan removed from the car, welded in IRS brackets for the new Rancho IRS box.
To match the new built 2.5L this time.
Had to repair here and there some rust problem
Repainted everything.
Longblock ready
Floorpan welded and new coat of paint
Small repairs...
As it stands now ready for the engine
Testing oil pressure, new fuel lines, fuel pressure.
Adjusting cilindertins for the big cilinders.

Fingers crossed

Well a bit of a downfall.
Came back from my holiday with covid,
Been in quarantine since.
so had to postpone my date at the dyno, car had a days work left, which could not be done now.
So could not send one off my buddies either.

Was happy for my holiday that I made it, but did not expect to be coming home sick after the holiday.
Can t do nothing about it, i have tried.
So no EBI this year in my bug, which is unfortunate.
Have to sit this shit out and hope I am well for EBI.
