No need to cut fire wood there, all ya gotta do is haul it home. Bet they'd
welcome anyone willing to clear the beach.
Brian, what ever happened to the Canadian Grand Prix, thought ya'll
might have got enough guys up on four wheels this year to pull that off.
Tks

So much happened here on the Forum while I was out in the shop today????hot smiley
Sorry Justin.........we were in Clinton all weekend, but did go through Oak Harbour on the way down.
Can back to the mainland via the Mukilteo Ferry.
And Rick........not blaming you for extra work, as the new plan may save me some!
Denny..........yes, we are all here to inspire each other. smileys with beerI can't wait to follow the rest of your build.smiling bouncing smiley
Martin was by this afternoon with his cool new trailer, and got me fired up again.
We do have enough members building here in in B.C. that means we could very well see a
Canadian Grand Prix somewhere in our future.thumbs up

Okay....it finally happened.
I moved the Miller back out to the CycleKart shop on Thursday and got out there to get back to work on it today.
As expected, most of the day was spent getting reacquainted with the project.
As I am re addressing the tail section, I had to mount the motor, add the air cleaner and header, as well as a few other
bits that I may have to work around to build the tail.......knowing that everything will fit inside!eye rolling smiley
As it seems that one can not take those next two steps forward without first taking one step back.
Today that turned out to be the fuel tank.sad smiley.......as it turns out it is just going to be too close the the engine cover (hood) on
one side, so it will need to be moved over.angry smiley This was one part I had just hoped that could be left stock, but not in the cards!
So that is another job for tomorrow.
BUT.......I did manage to make a couple of small pieces and get my head around how I am going to remount the tail and stabilize it.
Again....TOMORROW!
Also think I figured out the hood latch and release!hot smiley
Anyways......todays shop pictures.
Good Roads
Brian

Oh the Battery??????eye rolling smiley
Researched this to death and reached out to Forum members for ever to solve that little problem.
Tried al sorts of things.....and wasted both time an money!sad smiley
All over "WEIGHT"angry smiley
And in the end I purchased the smallest, lightest, motorcycle battery I could find.
I will just have to lose a few more lbs before racing season...........less beer!sad smileysmileys with beer

Hey Brian,

Maybe you could share the MGA project if you can't get to the CK. Pictures are always great ! Will the back of the seat have some form of ducting to move air into the engine compartment or is it pushing air the other way?
Anyway a great project to follow, keep it up.

Hi Chris
I am assuming you are asking about my CK as I have mounted a 1750 cam cooling fan behind the seat.
It is offset to the left side to draw air over the torque converter, belt and header (the things that produce the most heat) and
will vent directly out the back thru two large slots on either side of the rear tail section as well as louvers on the tail section sides,
plus out the bottom.
Air intake will be via louvers punched in the left side body panel ahead of the fan to scoop air directly into the front of the fan.
My hope is that this will be enough to keep the engine compartment cool while the CK is sitting still at an idle (something
we seem to do a lot of at events)
Thanks for following my build and I hope to get back to it very soon.
Here are some pictures of my my MGA project when I started 10 weeks ago.

Is that a Predator 212 or 305 Brian????

Ya.....sure......!!!! I think you hot rodders might be taking your lessons from
Carroll Shelby. Just can't leave those nice old vintage sporty cars alone can
you you guys.

But....kidding aside,that should make a fun car when it's done Brian. If your
target is this spring, then you must have the whole crew working on it, right?
You orta get the young one to hammer out some Miller for ya, that old body work
can look a lot like armor at times.

Vic, I don't think you quite get my sense of humor yet. I was just pullin' Brian's leg
a bit about the motor and his crew. But I still think after watching Levi hammer out
that Viking helmet, that he orta con him into making some body armor for the Miller.
Heck, a nicely shaped cowl would look cool under dad's Christmas tree, wouldn't it! .
