Glad I can be of help. Should you run into packaging issues, there's also in-tank fuel pumps, which make the whole plumbing a lot easier... The ones for a Harley Sportster should do the trick in terms of flow. Unfortunately the TR1 fuel tank is too narrow, so I'll have to go for an external one on my old Turbobike.

Very helpful - grateful thanx.

Maritime - it's amazing how these things develop like they have a mind of their own.

In the past - weird projects were usually fuelled by alcohol !! Seemed like A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME - YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES.

Like the time when I was running a major replica car company [ Sheldonhurst Ltd ] and we all went down the pub in my Citroen CX Estate for a quick lunchtime drink [ 3 hours ].

We needed a pick up for my business - don't really know how it happened - BUT WE DECIDED IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO CHOP THE CX DOWN INTO A PICK UP !!! By 7.30 I went home in a rudimentary pick up ! It was finished and later became a very good bike transporter.

However, no alcohol involved this time - just the feel good factor of finally getting my health back in order [ 'ish ].

Funds will dictate if it evolves into that 60's style Cafe Racer I wanted to build or not.

And the Drag Racing ???? Been 30 years since I last raced ....................

The turbo project is definitely a goer - thanx to all for your invaluable feedback.

Plan is now for a blow through system using the Garrett GT15 - via the Weber 40DCOE and the manifolds I have already.

My pal KK is sorting out a spare engine and we're doing a barter deal on that to keep costs down !

Now then -  you know the old saying - "a friend in need .......... is a pain in the ass".

Well, I'm in need of some of that help. UK based obviously.

Due to my well known lack of facilities / skills, I need some bits making / welding etc.

There's TWO PROJECTS IN FACT THAT I NEED THIS KIND OF HELP WITH

Happy to pay - not asking for freebies [ mate's rates would be good though ! ], it's just that I'm well out of the loop with local artisans. All the peeps I used  / employed when I had my business are themselves retired -or dead !

Most of the parts I need are small enough to be posted / couriered and simple enough for a sketch / drawing.

There's no immediate rush - just need to get my ducks in a row. 

Odd bits of alloy welding, turning a small adaptor [ alloy ] flange, turbo exhaust flange including support mounts.

There, not too proud to ask for help.

The Cut down Citroen CX estate ................ went to work in an estate car - went home with a pick up !!!

I'm sure you'll have no trouble getting those parts knocked out Beach.

Love the Moroso sponsor on that Aussie Citroen, I lined up for my first road race at Moroso West Palm, my leathers fast became a wet suit after standing it up from an inside rub, got the chicken shits and drove it right into the swamp... Was still as fun as anything I've done sense  :P Seems me and taking things with wheels for a swim has been a constant, some day I'll tell you the story about a C10, a curb, 50 feet of chain link fence and how good the headlights work at the bottom of a canal in south Miami  ;D

Ended up buying a generic turbo exhaust flange - probably as cheap as getting one made anyway.

Same company fabs the triangular intake [ turbo exhaust ] flange, so I'll probably get one of those as well - still arguing the price !

I have the remains of a wrecked bottom end [ casings ] and damaged barrels coming FOC thanx to Kenny on the Lonesome Twin forum - and I'll use that as the set up mule. Saves humping a complete engine around and no doubt with the accompanying damage to my newly powder coated frame ! ;) He's also loaning me a cylinder head so I can finalise the set up of the Intake / Weber / Turbo

I dropped the modified TR1 tank on  [ ex. Vindicator ] just as a "whatif" - and with a bit of massaging underneath it should fit. That's the 7R / G50 'ish styled tank I was prepping.

Still a bit undecided whether to stick to the Flat Track style, or switch over to 60's Cafe Racer styling. ?  ::)

Cases and head / barrels arrived today. Unfortunately too late to get it all into the shed.

Well, I HAD to unpack it ..... then I HAD to check it out ......... then I thought - hmm might as well just try the manifolds / Weber .............

It'll be in the rolling chassis by the weekend, then I can check out the packaging of the Turbo etc.

I'll just put it on the coffee table while I unpack it and check it out .............

Man O Man Beach, I had not heard of doing dual plugs on this motor.    Very cool stuff you are doing.   Glad you got the wind back in your sails.

Yep, booze / bar ware in the top - magazines and reference books in the bottom !!
