    Glad you are back on the car. Looks great.

    Looking over the pictures of the exhaust collector, I remembered that flatties vent the crankcase pressure through the filler tube. With that blower you will have the potential to increase this pressure. Most racecars have a scavenging system using the exhaust at the collector to assist in ventilation of the crankcase. Utilizing a check valve so exhaust can't pressurize the crankcase. Just a thought. I could see the vent cap flying off or allowing fine oil mist all over the engine compartment under heavy acceleration.

    My fan housing is not in best shape after some blasting
    i looks like a strainer!!,
    It need some repair before i can use it
    Today was i a trip to the junk yard and pick up a fan from a Toyota
    It was a Bosch!!!

    [​IMG]

    It was diameter 155mm insted of 120 as the original and same dept 80mm from the flange
    and it have right rotation direction
    As you can see on the picture i have made a new outside to the fan that are little bigger
    and will place fan little asymetrical to the inlet. Next step is to weld it in, in the fan housing.
    If it works well there will be a pic tomorrow of it or then it's ready.

    I am amazed at the ambition of some rodders.
    I have been struggling with what I thought would be a piece of cake T-5 conversion in my '51.
    I've been struggling with just the juice clutch slave cylinders for two months. (No room under there.)
    Reading this thread I realize it takes sheer determination to carry it through!
    Keep going , Stefan ! It's coming along! Keep at it!
