Thanx MT .... the finished item looks good in my head !!!!! The front will be curved to fit back round to the frame level with the main front engine mount - maybe mesh ? And there's some cosmetics required at the side and rear. But overall dead lucky that the main dimensions worked !! Unfortunately my pal Brian is back off to the US in a few weeks to work on his property - 3 months ! Fortunately I have now got a spare frame mule and I'll bring the dummy engine back round to my shed, so at least I'll be able to get on with the detailing and small parts. We MUST get the front spindle finished and made before he goes away.

Looks like the  Blower has to go  [ all together  ... Ahhhhhh ] as there's nobody who can do the machining for me. So the first engine will be Weber 40DCOE and Nitrous. I'll carry on building the blower motor as and when machining work can be done. I haven't given up on the blower - I just have to realistic .......................... just had my 74th birthday !!!!!!!

Keep going forward and you'll get there!. I can see the vision with the mockup, it's not done but the direction it's going is spot on. Hiding the fuel cell there is slick. and put the weight as low as it will go.

The fuel pump will go in there - and maybe the battery. I think the battery position might be optional to set the front / rear weight bias.

Nearly there clearing my pals garage  ::) - he's off to the US next week for 3 months. Most of the parts back that I'll need to carry on while he's away. Proved the belly fairing / fuel cell out - all good. Just needs mounting tabs and a bit of cosmetic finishing / shaping.

There will be a "snow plough" filler piece at the front and back. The actual fuel cell will be 3" longer and come right to the back edge of the fairing. Also, the finished item will be 1" more ground clearance which brings the side of the fairing neatly up to the lower frame rails. I have the mule frame set up in my shed and the dummy engine ready to go back in. I should be able to get a lot of the minor detailing done while he's away. I'll be getting my soda blast pot up and running in the next 4-6 weeks so I can start work on the engine. 8)

yeah - blower will be the #2 lump as it's going to take a while to get all the machining / fab done. So the first engine will be the '82 lump with the Weber 40DCOE. Oh, plus  2 x NOS foggers of course.

How big of a shot do you think it can handle ?

Going to start conservative between 50 and 75. The engines appear to be over engineered for their base HP rating. However, I have got a spare engine ! I'm pretty certain the engine will stand at least +50bhp.
