11-01-2007 10:38 PM Homemade baffles
Had the engine running and it is loud, Decided to make a set of baffles and use them temporarily until I decide what to do with the exhaust, Started off with a 10 inch piece of exhaust pipe and a copy of circles i cut out with a cup saw. Wrapped some electrical tape around the pipe like a drill bit and quartered it with a felt pen. I used my air hammer and punched holes in the tube and angled them all the same way. This should make the exhaust spin around the pipe.

10-31-2007 11:39 PM Blower Blowing
With the manifold done I mounted the blower and carb, finished the walker rad installation and had to make a idler pulley and bracket. Made the bracket out of a piece I had left over from the manifold and had a good buddy of mine machine a couple of bearing races into a crank pulley I got at a swap meet and I was ready to fire. Used a turnbuckle from another bracket and a old gasser style header alternater bracket to make mine work.
