    Posted on Wednesday, 22 March 2017
    If you are doing sheet metal work and haven't made yourself a slapper, this is a great tutorial on how to make and use one... And a video primer too... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdLDOkEPFgA

  • Picked up some helicoils to repair the stripped engine bar mount threads in the case. Need to remove the exhaust to be able to drill out and re-tap the holes which will give me a chance to cut and shut the tail pipe to give some more ground clearance.

    Picked up some helicoils to repair the stripped engine bar mount threads in the case. Need to remove the exhaust to be able to drill out and re-tap the holes which will give me a chance to cut and shut the tail pipe to give some more ground clearance.

    After a $300 trip to the local motor shop to buy more goodies I spent this afternoon striping and painting the fuel tank cover and prepping the fan shroud. I still have a bit of welding to do on the fan shroud but figured I'd at least get it in primer so that I can see what work I have left to do. Once the fuel tank cover had dried I added some new seals and fitted it. The engine bay is starting to take shape now. I'm looking forwards to getting the engine back in. It should look nice with the 36hp shroud painted black and the blower polished up.

    Also filled up the gearbox with oil and dug out a new pair of CV's from my stash. Starting to get excited. Can't wait to get the EFI up and running.

  • Spent some time in the week finishing off the second EFI manifold. I made the first one as a bit of a trial, to see if I could do it. I tried to refine the process a little with the second one and took a slightly different approach to how I set it up and welded it. I'm still not convinced that... Spent some time in the week finishing off the second EFI manifold. I made the first one as a bit of a trial, to see if I could do it. I tried to refine the process a little with the second one and took a slightly different approach to how I set it up and welded it. I'm still not convinced that I've figured out the best way yet as it is a bit time consuming. Fine for a one off like this but not to make multiple sets.

    At any rate the manifolds and fuel rails are pretty much done and are nearly ready to be fitted. I just need to make a tie down plate to hold the fuel rail in place and buy the correct fuel rail fittings.

    The Bay to Birdwood is the largest, continually held motoring event for veteran, vintage and classic vehicles held anywhere in the world.

    Save The Date

    The next Bay to Birdwood will held on Sunday 24th September 2017, and will be open to classic vehicles of all types built between 1st Jan 1956 and 31st Dec 1981.

    The Bay to Birdwood for 2017 is an event is for Classic vehicles, and will take place on Sunday 24 September.

    Entries will be open to all original cars, motorcycles, vans, trucks and commercial vehicles built on or after 1 January 1956 and on or before 31 December 1981.

    The inaugural Bay to Birdwood was held in 1980 and the event has since become a fixture on the South Australian events calendar. The principal stakeholders of the Bay to Birdwood are the National Motor Museum, a Museum of History SA (NMM) and the Federation of Historic Motoring Clubs (SA) Inc (FHMCSA) and the event’s success can be attributed to vision and ongoing commitment of those key organisations.

    As a not- for-profit community event, the Bay to Birdwood also relies on the time, dedication and expertise of a large contingent of volunteers who share a mutual passion for the preservation, promotion, enjoyment and sustainability of the historic vehicle movement in South Australia.
