  2. Thanks for the update. Buddy just picked up similar hydraulics for his project. What's the center to center distance on that lever for the throwout fork?

    Engine went back into the frame this morning and it’s time to think about my exhaust system. Have my helper in the garage and we just need to turn this pile of parts into a functioning system

    I figured I would put the mufflers mid frame that way I have some place to install hangers to support them.

    Exhaust project is moving along I purchased a 1.75” header bend kit so I have been cutting them up using them to make my exhaust system [​IMG]

    Im pretty sure I saw this trick on H.A.M.B. so I can’t take credit for it but a wide hose clamp with a hole drilled in it holds the pipes square and you can tack them together

    I made up some flanges and welded them up to the headers[​IMG]
    Next up is make the muffler mounts and the send some pipes over the axle

    A little progress in the last few weeks I was able to make up the exhaust that runs over the axle and was able to get mounts tacked onto one side. I’m having to time my noisy work (grinding and cutting) in between a sleeping baby directly above the garage but I’m getting a few hours a week
