I made the timing cover today. The cover was cut using the CNC machine then the counterbores were
made manually in the drill press. I now have to chuck it up in the lathe and bore the inside to recieve the
front crank seal. I think the cover will be polished and buffed to a high gloss.

Completed the bell housing adapter plate today. There is a small channel in the back that needs to be milled
for the coolant to transfer between cylinder banks.

Just a little mini update. I started the intake manifold by getting a block of aluminum to size and cutting the angles on the top edges. Tomorrow I will put the blank in the mill and start carving out the basic shapes on the top side.

Got a call from home today while at work. Starter died on the sons car. Thought I would spend the night replacing that but we set a speed record doing the repair. Had enough time left over to get the top of the intake profiled. Hope to do some more but work is going to stop that for the rest of the week.

Hello All!

Update on the Little Demon. I made some head gaskets today. I took the same approach as the bugatti and made a template. The template was made from 1/8 inch thick aluminum bar 2 inches wide. One drilled and tapped for four 4-40 screws and the other drilled for clearance. The pair are bolted together and machined into the shape needed for the gasket. The long slot is the area under the head that would be impossible to reach with a razor blade.



A slice of teflon sheet is loaded into the template. This piece is a leftover but a smaller piece would be better.






Use a razor blade to clean out the slot and the cylinder holes.




Then use a drill bit to clean out the holes for the head bolts and water jackets.




Remove the teflon from the fixture and install it on the block. Use the razor blade to trim the gaskets outside edges.








And that is all. It took about 5 minutes each after the template is made.

simple but effective

I like the idea of the templates btw, means you can make a whole lot of spares nice and easy.
