    Default My latest project.

    Here are some pictures of my latest car project that I've been working on. A keg fuel cell for a corvette.

    Nice work. Just wondering why you didnt clean up the keg? Is the idea to look used?

    Cool

    This is just a thought from my buddy an Ohio State Highway Patrolman. He said the first thing they would do when a guy comes in with a beer keg like on a dune buggy to get inspected is make him "prove" he owns the keg or he has to remove it. Just my .02 ...Bob

    Yes, the idea was to keep it looking like a used keg. I've personnaly never seen one that wasn't scratched and dented a bit. A friend wanted me to polish it and remove the paint, but I figured it wouldn't look right.

    Kegs can be bought remanufactured for around $80 bucks, and are around $150 new, or at least they used to be before the price of stainless went up. I suppose if I was told I couldn't have this one then it could be turned in for 50 cents per pound. This particular one was de-comissioned for some reason so I was told, and had been in private posession for 24 years.

    It holds a half gallon less than the origonal fuel tank. I tinkered with a sending unit from a CAT 777 haul truck that fits into the neck of the keg, I just have to buy a couple parts and I'll have it hooked up to the stock fuel guage.

    Thanks Bert for the comments

    I'm still working on the tuning, but it's working really good. I have to get the distributor advance curve set up right, and I'm working on the secondary jetting and accelorator pump timing.

    It's nice to have her back on the road, she should see the track this year to do a couple of passes and top speed tests, and I'm currently in the process of buying a 12 point CrMo cage for it.

    You can check out a short video on youtube called 'rabbi's 1976 stingray'

    I also just finished the dual stainless exhaust, well, ok, mostly finished. I still need to correct an error I made in one of the tubes, install a crossover pipe, and fab up some nice stainless hangers to get rid of the steel ones.
