Best of the season to all.

Here is a procedure for creating a velocity stack for the carb. A Christmas bell is used to cast a shape;

The shape is attached to a mandrel and shaped by turning , carving , sanding etc:

Checking:

Toy got fixed by a guagepods kit into a usable tool:

First tries were lacking, including in front of my entire IPMS crew , I figured out that raising the shape relieved the wrinkles that were occurring:

And perseverance resulted in an acceptable sample:


The velocity stack will have a disc of fine screen inserted in the face , so I wont be making any details for the venturi.

Starting to look like a bike...

as opposed to a variety of fantastically realistic-looking parts of a bike...

Great build!

A spacer and some washers and a nut threaded on tightens the engine/trans/primary plate into place. A pully will be here in the future, this is for trans mounting purposes . This sank it all down, right into the mounts, real happy to see everything seat perfectly:
