That is essentially what I did, but somewhat rectangular rather than a tube. It's time I got a drawing program and learned to use it!
Perhaps we go to slowly for it to work smiling smiley

Rhys,

That was just knocked up quickly with Libre Office Draw, rather than a CAD program, I've got some CAD programs installed, just haven't got to grips with them. Just struck me that a dummy side exhaust pipe could be used too, of course it would only work when moving.

So, the question is: What is more effective? A secondary pipe to create a venturi effect. or wrapping the header pipe with that exhaust wrap.

Getting back on track.....as this is my Miller Build thread.
Here are pictures of the start of the tail.
It is ironic that when I originally started planning my body, I thought about the order in which I would build it.
This was to be the "Last" piece, not the "First".
Shows how are thoughts can change along the way with these fun little machines.
Good Roads
Woody

Oh, in that last post. The pictures show the Buick Headlight cut up, then the change in width from 8" to 9 3/4".
The new pictures in this post show where that new piece will be incorporated into the body of my Miller.

Well, it's wide enough now. That looks really good.
I think it's good you tackle this part now. It'll be fun to look at and inspire you to get though the
less sexy parts of the build.

Woody

I'd be inclined to do both, pipe wrap will reduce the heating effect of the header, venturi will help remove the hot air.

The tail is looking good, always better to tackle something when the inspiration strikes you, rather than slavishly following your initial build schedule.

Damn, That first one looks amazing. My one little issue with the Millers and ERAs is how tall they often were. Ah, now I get it, the first one is FWD so they don't have to deal with the trans/drive shaft under the driver. So low, it reminds me of the Delage from that angle. Once again, great pictures.

Yes Bryan
The 91's are FWD and have a nice lower stance!
I chose the 122, as it has more in common with the cyclekart chassis and I am not fond of the "step thru" cockpit on the 91's.
The smaller diameter wheels that we use on cyclekarts and the poetic licence we are afforded, allowed me to get the stance to a much lower position than the original 122's for what I think will be a nice look.
Thanks for following my thread.

Glad to report slow but steady progress on the Miller project.
Mostly house keeping items though, so not much in the way of a pictorial report.
Logged some more hours on the lathe over the weekend making a tool to drill cotter key holes (everything my Miller will be cotter keyed as original)
dilled all suspension bolds, and king pins, polished steering wheel, painted small parts, drilled lightning holes in my throttle cable mount/foot deflector,
and drafted the cut out for the CycleKart #2 project cockpit "SIMULATOR" ???????winking smiley
GOOD ROADS

Our Car Club has an annual Fall Garage Tour which happens this Sunday. My place is always a stop, so I hope to showcase my CycleKart shop for a bit of a change.
So, the plan is to assemble my Miller (to the stage it is currently at) before the weekend.
Thus there will be some pictures coming very soon.
