I have had several questions about the blower mounts and drives. There are limited angles for me to foto that section

but I will post 3 images and even though the crank pulley and belt aren't in place, you can get an idea of the setup.

Remember, the drive is thru the back of the blower to keep the rotation proper.

You can also see the burst panel on the blower.

My prior posts are very similar to these views. There has been no work done in this area for a long time.

If I see the complete engine on a stand, with the pulley and brackets, it would be in Oregon, I'll shoot that and post it later.

These are shot from the right side of the car.

Hume attended a seminar that was related to efficient Work Flow.

There was a section on Multi-Tasking.

I think he missed the point of the presentation.

His first attempt at M-T was with Spring Clips.

Post 195 dealt with  the retainers for the drivers compartment panels. It is not necessary to remove these panels to service the car so the release mechanism is “sealed off” by 4 small screws. These screws will have to be removed in order for the release to work. Then a small stainless steel handle, The Pickle, with a 3/8” square end will rotate the mechanism and the pins will  retract from the panel. There are two of these releases, upper and lower, on each panel.  The first foto is the unfinished drivers compartment skin for the left side.
Image 43em.

The left side release mechanism is in the locked position. The skin is actually being held in place in this foto. The chamfered hole is where the retaining screw is inserted. The square hole is where the release handle, The Pickle, is inserted.

The Pickle

Detail of the retainer system on the drivers area panels.

Both the upper and lower panel retainers are shown in this picture. The upper is retracted and the lower is extended. The ends of each are out of focus, so I will show close ups. This is the right side of the car.  ( Pretty lame foto. Sorry.)

In the locked position, the plunger is seated in the heat resistant plastic that is attached to the left front of the panel. This will all be enclosed by the inside panel skin.  This is the inside of the left side drivers compartment panel.

Right side, upper in the retracted position. These are close ups of the first picture in this post.


Right side lower is extended to retain the panel.

Behind this panel is the drive to the rear end.

The large hole in the upper right is the pick up point.

Having spent the entire evening reading and seeing some of the most superb craftsmanship imaginable, I am left virtually speechless. This is the epitome of Yankee ingenuity and craftsmanship in my humble world. Hume is just unbelievable in his talents. Articus, you are one lucky dude to be among this group of blessed and talented people. Dr. Freud, you have become the Webster dictionary of LSR photos for me, and I am sure Stainless is keeping you honest and on your toes.
Thanks to you all for your efforts and a most enjoyable evening of spectating for a novice like myself.

Respectfully
Jimbo    cheers

Women sometimes have a bad hair day. I had a bad foto day today.

I have attached 4 fotos of the inside of the drivers compartment panel.

This is the left side panel. It just shows some of the detail of the inside of that panel.

When all of the fittings are done, the entire assembly will be disassembled, all will be painted

and then reassembled. Then the inner skin will be attached after it is painted.

Many of those small empty holes will be filled with a flush head rivet. When the rivet is bucked and set

the head is flush and does not require any filing to be absolutely flush with the skin.

That just takes time and skill.

I'll post some more fotos soon and try to make them of higher quality.

I wish I had accomplished better fotos to show this detail.

Been trying to work out how to make the decision about which year to journey to Bonneville (big $$$ from here - slowly saving, getting there - and for me it'll be once a lifetime). I reckon the debut of this car will be a worthy goal.

If I go with friends when they ship bikes or a car over, there's the dilemma of being stupidly busy as crew and not having time to wander around.
I can't miss seeing this amazing car and having followed the build story (even if it takes another three years) it will give the trek from Oz some extra meaning.

Bit cheesy, but you've given somebody's saving dollars a sense of purpose!

PJG, take my word for it. I'll keep everyone advised about the build. Marlo had a reply from the people that have built the new front end. They said they would ship tomorrow. (Friday USA )
Denver is getting snowed on, BIG TIME, tonight. Maybe they will get it to the shipper and maybe they won't. The good part is that these parts are not critical at this time. All the work is being done on the aft half of the car. The assembly can be installed at any time and not be a problem. It's just reassuring to know that one more state of the art assembly has been completed.

I'll try to pick up the pace and do more frequent posts. It's 110 miles roundtrip to do the fotos, so I don't go every day. Once a week is practical.

Thanks to all of you for your interest.
