We put in half of the trans today, with the other half needing bolts that were missing when we got it new?  Aawwww!  Good thing we found that potential problem.  We are working on the blower mounts, it should be done tomorrow and the rest of the trans with it.  This picture shows the only thing that has really worked out for us on the first try.  The air intake for the blower was cut and it fit!!  We now just need to cut the top end of it to get the correct height for the bend toward the front of the car.

Finished getting the trans and drive line put in.



Of course the closer we get the more mods that have to be done.

Looks like we are not going to make it this month, if not we will be going in Sept.  If anyone is going in Sept. we will hopefully see you there or possibly in Mirage in Oct. or Nov.

You've made amazing progress. Keep on thrashing till it's a runner. Then you won't have what everyone else has for the next event - the dreaded last minute thrash. Great work so far. I can't wait to see it out.

We got the blower mount and a support bracket for our plate completed. 



The blower mount is now on the blower.



The blower plate is in, we had to shim the plate so the blower drive would move freely inside the crank assembly.



The plate is complete with the blower and support plate bolted on, all we need is a few shorter bolts and it will be done.  A few more items will be bolted on to this plate.

We are working on the 6" blower inlet and the blower outlet.  We had to cut an old ear brace off to make room for the tubing going next to the valve cover and through the cowl.





Cutting the six inch air intake.





The car with the hood on so we could see the clearance issues that we will have to deal with.

The inter-cooler is in the car and ready for some blower tubing. 





We have some tubing tacked together and going through part of the cowl.



Me cutting a rubber hose for the tubing.



We have the angles cut, just hoping its right.



What do you know it fit.



Now tacked in place.



Need to cut a hole in the pipe and weld the blow off valve on.



Welded on, now just needs to be ground down to make it smooth.



Working on the blower intake.  Trying to make it fit under the hood.

Getting the intake ready to tack together.



The final piece needed a little flattening, if this didn't work we would've use the scoop off the old tractor.





Sitting in place and needing to be shortened. 







My girls playing in the car, the little one didn't want to get out.

The air intake is all welded up and ground down.  We are getting ready to work on the blower tubing that goes through the window.



taping the window to get a sketch to follow.





Making up a template just to make sure this shape will work.  If we make a mistake on this window or crack it Sept. meet is a no go.





I'm the lucky one who gets to cut. 



Actually I'm more nimble, flexible and younger.  If I fall it won't hurt as much as the old man.



A successful cut, pheww.


The line up looks good.



One pipe cut. 



The two bends are done.



The elder one tacking the tubing together.



The straight pipe is tacked in. and all the pipe is ready to weld tomorrow.
