    There's not allot to see of the engine yet. It's all mock-up stuff at this point. Even the carb. is a PVC mock-up. It will eventually be an F-2 pro charged 540 BBC.

    Since he is not online now, I can answer that. I recognized it right away when I saw it. Here is a link to his thread on it.

    Beautiful - Nice work !

    Did you also fab the seats ?

    Is that a HF brake, Enco, ?
    How do you like it
    I'm planning to buy a 4'x16g brake with my stimulus check, looking for recommendations.

    No, the seats are Kirkey.
    The brand name on the brake is Central Machinery

    I haven't used it much yet, but so far I like it.

    That's a nice, simple looking die, Burninbriar. I've made some dies for my brake too, as we're always needing to form different contours. I think we also did a 7/8" radius and I know we've done some 10 ga. stainless on it.
    I'll try to remember to snap some pics.
    It takes some thought and time, but there's nothing like being able to form it up in-house.

    Default nice work Pro70

    Looks like you're taking your time to get it right. That was a good idea to do the fibreglass release. We do a lot of that for aero/body work. Looks like you're getting good use out of your CNC. Thumbs up and good luck with the rest of the project.

    Question

    NICE work, I love metal fabrication; even if it's a welder cart. And I'm a closet motorhead...... so you can guess what I think of this.

    My question is: I didn't know that you needed to heat aluminum to bend it?

    See my sig for my point of view.

    I wanted a fairly sharp/even bend. Since the piece I was bending was 1/4" on the edges and 1/8'' in the machined areas and I was bending right along side gauge openings I didn't want to distort, I played it safe & got the aluminum hot enough to be pliable. 1/4'' plate aluminum is a little beyond what this brake is rated for. I put a fair amount of pressure on it and then heated the plate until it gave.
