56Don, I will look into that- thanks!
I will have to go back and check but his has Marshall "raised cast" and website shows valve cover spacer available and pic of valve cover not available.
It's in the "seeking a foundry" to get cast stage.
I started with anything I neeeded but was too cheap to buy, carb adapter, blower idler arms, blower end plate along with plaques and other shit.....
Well, I finally cast something!
I needed a hand brake mount for my 1937 ford pickup, and so decided it would be a good casting project. I drew up a design in fusion, 3d printed a pattern, and cast it the next day. I'm pretty happy with the results of my first try at casting. More to be coming soon for sure!
I put together a short video of my latest casting. It is a sand rammer for compacting casting sand. Enjoy!
Even better make an oval air cleaner that covers all 3 carbs. This gives you a plenum and is not restrictive like those little bitty individual cleaners
Nice, whole bunch Better than a screwdriver! Thanks, Carp.
Did you ever get around to casting the El Toro?
We made propane fueled furnaces out of 1/2 of a 55 gallon barrel. Lined them with fire brick. Ran the fuel line in with air added to it< controlling the air with a ball valve. I still know where one is if pictures were needed or I think it could be bought.
Man you never know where that was ! I’m sorry I could not help it !
That’s Awesome thanks for sharing and look forward to seeing future projects. I plan on building a similar setup to yours for my casting ideas.
