As noted previously, the engine mock-up highlighted two problems. First, shoehorning the Oldsmobile Rocket mill into the shortened wheelbase meant that two of the four carburetors failed to clear the cowl, & second, the steering column failed to clear the engine. More on the steering workaround in a future post. Today, I wanted to highlight some of the work that's gone into modifying the cowl for the carbs.
As usual, Rudy & Jasper down at Fullerton Fabrication have done some amazing work not only making everything fit but doing so in an aesthetically pleasing manner (read: the intake is looking completely wicked).
Yup, looking more like a proper hot rod each day.
