  1. When is someone gonna flow an ironhead! I wanna see figures. Standard port size looks similar to Sly's new ports. Are they too heavy for flow benchs to handle or are there no irons left anymore? Sent from my SM-J330G using Tapatalk
  2. Distraction number 2 is nearly done. Sent from my SM-J330G using Tapatalk
  3. The rate you guys change pm's it is highly possible that can happen!!
  4. Been flat out trying to get the new outboard tidied up and on the boat before summer hits. Getting tennis elbow after cutting 20k of rings has been a bitch too. My other hand doesn't work as well with the cutters so slowed right down. Have 6kg of cut and annealled rings ready for flattening and 3ish kg of cut rings waiting for a holiday in the fire.
  5. These are what i used with mine.
  6. Forgive me fathers for i have sinned, it's been a long time since my last confession... Haven't done anything interesting, legal or otherwise, with the XC. Or anything else for that matter. Have painted the engine cover of the outboard and got a few coats of primer on on the rest of it. Hopefully be fitted by mid september. Double the power of the old one so will be fun.

  10. I hear that!! Cant hide a truck behind the shed though....need bigger shed.. Always wanted to build a lotus 7 style toycar. One that shouts 'GO F#$K YOURSELF' like this beastie Sent from my SM-J330G using Tapatalk
  11. Good ideas fella's, Them pliers would be good for consistency for sure, still need to load each ring individually so time would be roughly the same. Still a good idea worth exploring though I still have dreams of a morris minor van, with a jap 4 banger motor and auto trans as a daily. But then i take on projects like this lol
  12. Haha yeah yeah, i used to own pommy cars too, stopped owning them and stopped 'needing' a counselor Have thought lots about how to cut the overlap in bulk, several theories, none that will save time or money. 1 : coil rings around a larger rod, cut along length of coil with diamond wheel etc, then use pliers to create overlap. 2: coil rings around a larger rod, cut along length of coil with diamond wheel etc, let the pixies n leprechauns tweak them overnight. 3 : buy the rings at approx 50 nzd a kilo from overseas, becomes expensive quick. 4 : (current option) pour another drink n get to work ignoring the fact i used to have a life.
  13. 6.3kgs of rings cut and normalised, approx 12.5 thousand. Expected weight of total suit is 25kg going off others for sale online. So im a quarter of the way through stage 1. Had to have a few days off cutting, back of hands were aching badly.
  14. Minus 3 forecast for tonight. Expected high of 8 tomorrow lol ice on the truck snorkel
  15. Got it done in 6 hours. Mrs too weak to use riveter. And she too short to support the panels. But she tried i guess. Be able to clear out carshed once i build some shelves.
