3D Radio Faceplate

Interior Today, 07:07 PM
Thanks guys. I've only had the radio for a year and haven't gotten around to installing it yet. LOL.   Mind you... the exhaust sounds so sweet, with the 10.1 CR, headers, 2.5" pipes and 280 degree cam, that I really don't mind much

kurby is right - while the printers can generate very complex geometry, they don't give you a nice smooth, consistent finish. cut it from solid or better yet, pull a mold and make one out of resin composite - that way you'll pick up the exact finish textures. you will of course have to paint it t...

no lathe - drill press. wrapped the top of the carb pistons in some tape and got 'em in the chuck, then used a file to slowly bevel off the bottom edge and then scotchbrite down to 1500 grit to clean up and hit 'em w/the buffing wheel on my bench grinder. works, but i'm wanting a lathe (so i can...

I never use that vent. Removed the plastic piece in the engine bay and stuck a rag in the tube, to get more cool air to the carbs. When I tried to use that vent, on a July trip through the desert, it just blew hot air anyway. Probably tougher than it looks to get the gauge sitting in th...

Tuning this 3.0 on SUs...

Carburetor Central 19 Apr 2015
I changed dashpot oil to 30 wt. a few months ago and it helped reduce the miss at transition to WOT, but didn't eliminate it entirely. I had the N27's polished, and that made a further improvement, but still not 100%. Installed the SM's a few weeks ago. I like the peppy low end they're providing...

the block is honed, decked & surfaced, the crank is balanced  Curious - who's doing the work?  I looked back but didn't find anything.  Is there a Seattle shop that knows how to work on these old engines?   Of course, what you had done isn't super-complicated, but...

the block is honed, decked & surfaced, the crank is balanced and i just got the pistons cleaned up so they can be balanced as well. the zx motor came with a 3-row pulley (a/c, power steering) and i unbolted the front pulley and had an idea to cut off the next one. put it in the lathe and slic...
