We are having our first cold snap down south here. So everybody in the house has a cold and sore throat.

Really don't feel like working on it but........

Hit it a little lick anyway.

The spacers cleaned up at .241 ground to min clean up both sides.

And did some of the hand work on the intakes I fabbed up a while back.

Think I am gonna leave the welds showing.

Still have to spend some time with the die grinder blending the insides.

Here is an mock up. I think they are pretty darned killer on the heads. Air filters are gonna ruin the dramatic effect......but anyway.

Needs some big gnarly Hilborn style stacks on em. Run screens to catch the big stuff and just plan on rebuilding it a bit sooner. Can't put a value on cool. :thumbup1:

Yep. A little left over change.

They all the same though and will still need to be sized to the actual fit. Just a rough in to to calculated dims. I just hope they are still thick enough for actual. Gotta be careful how much I take off the case for the cylinder seat.

This engine will smoke my 1776cc tryke...wah! Just make sure ya don't run the rocker stud nuts that come with those finned valve covers-they'll strip on any setup with stiffer than stock springs. I've always run Webers or Dellortos, or CB Performance F.I. Your F.I. system is very interesting if not too complicated, can't wait to see it on the road. TRYKE ON!

The cb kit is a good one.

My whole injection set up AND ignition will cost me less out of pocket than just one of the cb throttle bodies.

Plus.... no one will have one like it.

Bored hundreds of heads and cases years back..I used to do all the machine work for a local v dub shop in my garage. Just ran across my fixtures a couple days ago. This brings back memories.

They just keep getting bigger.

This one is a 94 x 86. 2387cc

I have not worked on it for several days now.

Sick with a cold and sore throat also worked all weekend and long days. Just too tired to care right now.

Wasted all my time away this evening hunting for my valve spring press.

Never did find it. Got to do something to get these heads apart to do the machine work.
