I'm more ready than anyone to see em done..

The small cooling system related plates arrived yesterday from S&T. So some more tig welding, then run to powder coat guy again. Once that's done, engines gottta have more mandrel bent SS just to connect everything together.

Have flanges for all the ports now if anyone needs some.

Every bolt started without honing a single hole. What's the ods of that?

CAD rocks, now need a 3D printer for mock ups..

When you are very good at your job, quality doesnt need adjustment...and everything about this build has been a very good, quality job.

Thanks. It's taken a bundle of paper and few printer ink cartridges to get all these custom pieces right. Sketch, print, cut, fit, repeat.

I was planning to fire em up this week with stock oil filters, then soon discovered those won't bolt up now cause of header clearance. So the oil cooler and remote filter has to be fitted first. Main coolant heat exchangers mock up work is where I'm at today.

Looking good

How long did you spend polishing those headers

Those came fully polished, but I've spent an hour or two buffing my own fingerprints off them...

I discovered a great little shop here in Ohio that took the up pipes from raw welded SS to what you see above. Has a slick multi wheel setup, one for each stage of the process. Kinda reluctant to post info, cause don't want him getting to busy.. lol. But he's really good and does mostly top shelf classic car restoration pieces. You can find him on FB under Grafton Metal Finishing

Don't worry about me making him too busy, my wallet isn't that deep

Both are ready to fire up soon as I finish installing wiring harnesses.
Everything been on hold a couple months awaiting the owner to straighten out paperwork on the boat. Soon as that's done it should get back on track.
