In reply to # 21823 by Topper2011 Hi gang. No progress on my glacially slow kart. I do have a question as to what bolts are used to bolt the torque converter bracket onto the Honda engine? I've used both my metric and standard taps to see what the tread pitch was and nothing seem to be correct. Any ideas? I was trying to setup the engine. Thanks.

They are metric, at least all mine have been, but there are different thread pitches in metric, fine, and standard, from memory, with my motor somewhere in a container almost docking in the UK, they are 10mm fine (1.0?) but I am often wrong.

The bolts are 8mm and take a 10mm wrench.

OK, no progress on the Christie, busy with motorcycles and things. Thought I'd post this video for your enjoyment.

Thanks Roland. Having been around automobiles and machine shops most all of
my life, that is the most unbelievable bit of workmanship I've ever seen.
Looks like he did much of the work in a vertical milling machine with a rotary table
and in an engine lathe with LOTS of special fixtures. Such as the setup for grinding
the cams, crank and blower rotors. The manifolds and other complex shapes that he
machined out of a solid block of aluminum look exactly like complex aluminum castings.
Just the blower itself is a pure work of art.

Wonder how long it took him to build that.

Hi Denny. Here is a blog of his build. I haven't read it yet though.
