DIY Port holes

Agreed Robbie.

Been busy yet again! This will be a four day stint this time. Thai food tonight permitting.

Replacing the giant wooden POLO's used to secure the portholes. cutting them out took absolutely ages.

Used Styrene to make 2mm shims as UK ply is too small. May end up using Sikaflex as the 2mm shim and know they are properly secured and sealed too. Cutting styrene was a doddle using a rotozip.

Took up the whole damn day!

Re: Steve's Boat

One minute it looks like the olympics next an Audi advert.
Not easy cutting discs out by hand, but they look great well done Steve.

Re: Steve's Boat

Bit of giggle about the Olympic rings and I didn't get a grilling about using an angle grinder in the vice. Great minds think alike perhaps?

Going to paint the rings tomorrow and then sort out the lights on the Cabin trim parts. Which the workshop is now brimming with.

I was hoping the man in N.Y. would have got back to me about the cam grinds by now but guess he's out for the weekend.

Re: Steve's Boat

Angle grinder in a vice. Circular saw locked upside down in a Workmate.
Funny how its always the ones with workshops the size of the Albert Hall and kitted out with all the latest DeWalt catalogue items that tell you your doing it wrong?
Never done it myself you understand!

Re: Steve's Boat

It must be the angle the photo was taken at, but the new discs look much bigger than the old ones in your picture Steve. Then I see you have used the old ones as templates in another picture so must be same size.
Have you had a test fitting yet mate?

Re: Steve's Boat

Great use for the front of the trailer, using it as a work bench !!

With this new found enthusiasm you will not have time to go to work.

I reckon another 2 solid weeks and you will have made great strides

Arrow Re: Steve's Boat

Need more parts for more progress!


I hope to get the new exhaust tips in by the end of next week but we'll just have to see how work goes.

Can anyone help me out here?

I'm using distributors with no mechanical advance and looking for Electronic ignition control boxes with the following features

rev limiter
programmable or selectable advance curve
start retard function.
Multiple sparks under set RPM.

Don't care if its a car or marine unit I can pot it with silastomer to sort that out.

Steve

Re: Steve's Boat

Doesn't seem to do everything your after but this any good?
http://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/pr...edium=Shopping

Maybe something on their site of interest? Like a couple of cross draft Weber carbs.

Re: Steve's Boat

Robbie,

Thanks for your help.

Discovered these today ...
http://www.msdignition.com/Products/...ble_6AL-2.aspx

actually discovered the other day but it confused me totally. Which doesn't take much.


There are two 6AL-2's, two very different items with the same model name?

Asking for trouble.
