  12. I like it. I can only see the last two pictures above. Maybe when the site was changed the pics got lost. That's a nice setup man, lots of work to get that far. Would love to see more. Thanks for posting.

  18. I have a Y block in a Model A also (stock frame) and run a generator in the stock location, that is what it looks like you have. not much room to swing the generator to adjust the belt, what is your plan? I built a tensioner pulley that pushes down on the belt and mount the generator solid.
