Klink darem of jy goed vorder E. =D>

Het amper gedink jy oorweeg `n groot bonfire daar in die Ooste. :)

Kan ek gou hoor; het jy al die 4130 sheet in die hande gekry? Ek het ook (`n klein stukkie) nodig en ek hoop om plaaslik te koop.

Dankie Jean. Ek dink jy kan maar so stadig aan pos. Dan kan ek hom vas skroef en begin werk aan die cowl 8)

Ek weet nie van die goed vorder nie. Die lewe interveer met my bouery :? :? Hoe groot en hoe dik het nodig Heinrich? Ek het 'n paar vlenters:-

1) 12" x 24" x .050" wat ek verkeerd bestel het #-o #-o en nie gaan gebruik nie

2) 5" x 9" x .060 wat oor is

3) 12" x 12" x .090 wat oor is

As dit gaan werk is jy welkom.

Ek sal dié stukkie waardeer Eddie. (Ek het eintlik 9" x 19" x .090 nodig maar die sal genoeg wees om solank aan die gang te kom. [-o< [-o<

(Jy moet sê watse bier jy drink of wat ek jou skuld vir dit. Ek sal plan maak om te kom optel as ons weer vir vriende gaan kuier in Silverton.)

Hallo Tobie. Nog nie die enjin gekry nie. Maar jy is welkom om te kom aandoen. Ek het 'n koue (Coke) in die yskas. (Besig om oor te klim op die waterkar [-o< )
Ek het darem die struts gemaak en laat sweis by KFA. Tussen die koste van die 4130 streamline tubing (USD 24 per ft x 20 X exchange rate plus importers profit :shock: ) en die sweisery sal ek nou die ouvrou na omtrent 30 jaar moet verkoop. :( (Sy stryk nie te sleg nie en kan kook maar haat naaldwerk) Die struts het ek nou op my versekerings polis as gespesifiseerde items opgesit :!: #-o

Ek krap ook aan die instrument paneel en maak planne om 'n flexplate te laat maak in die plek van die vliegwiel sodat ek 'n aansitter kan opsit.

Groete!

No, it's back at the roost.Thank you. :D Got it on Thursday. Will sort the carb's outstanding this week. [-o<

I will be making a dummy firewall to sort the starter fitting etc. I bought a Camry starter from flysouth for R200 but must still get to Randburg to go and fetch it. Hope he hasn't got gatvol yet and sold it as scrap in the meantime #-o

Sarcasm... [-X Not really. My life and family is interfering again :( But I got a chance last week to take the flywheel to Profection engineering to see if they can modify it. Now waiting in anticipation [-o< [-o< Fortunately the boss there is an aerie builder of note so I believe he will be more likely to understand my problem.

Was wondering if I should bolt the engine to the firewall directly as per plans ( simply four alu spacers between firewall and the bell housing flange of the engine or use the steel "mounting ring" that bolts to the bell housing flange and then bolt that to the firewall via the spacers.
