Reeds arrived Friday and Rich finished welding the pipe. I have what I need to get it fired up now, but….

The carb won’t go on!

The bowl cap is contacting the front motor mount and the carb is not fitting in the intake flange. Tomorrow afternoon I’ll modify that mount for clearance but the bit welded to the chassis that the mount bolts to may become an issue as well. A couple added links to the chain should move everything forward enough so any geaing option will keep it from getting close.

At least the Pipe fits!!! I did forget to give Rich the EGT bung but I can get that on myself later in the week.

With any luck I’ll post up the running engine video tomorrow afternoon!
