    Beautiful fab job, but it looks like the outer cylinders will be running leaner than the middle ones.

    Great job spence! For your first one you nailed it man! In Ny we have a helium shortage as well. The owner of my lws told me he can get it and couldn't give me a price on a mix but said trust me you wont like the price.

    I agree nice work, i worry about the runners running lean on the outside cylinders as the draw of the manifold u built would work well with fuel injection, but im almost certian it will have a lean condtion with a carb on the outside and rich on the centers. Easiest way to confirm this is to to run the car at wot for a minute of so and check the headers with a temp gun. Also unless you really spin that motor ie over 8k, we have never bettar hp with anything other than a victor junior.

    Very nice work, may I ask what the trick is to laying down a thicker bead? Bigger cup/filler?

    I am new into tig welding and am only using a diversion 165.

    I guess he's gone... I wish we knew what equipment he was using.

    Killer work for a first manifold... ****, killer work for a 50th...

    By having a removable top section, he should be able to weld in little dams or whatever to even up the flow, maybe.
    why is helium an issue here? I'd have guessed he would want argon.
