HI Ryan i see your head (i.e. the part with the spark plug hole in it) has studs to mount the hopper, wouldnt the hopper be mounted to the head with the head bolts? I ask this as my head does not have studs in it? confused as per usual.

ignore all the red oxide around the case covers, that will all be removed to form perfect gaskets

this is the first coat

Post by RAB on Fri Dec 04 2009, 17:05

im using international japlec recommended buy hope and crank, its expensive costing £27.99 per litre, but i gotta say, its the best i have used, its nearly hard withing 6 hours, its amazing no runs, i was keeping the colours quite, but its going to be black with gold rims on the flywheels and name plate letters are also gold , im going to try and get a large wolseley gold transfer made up for the hopper
