    If I remember correctly these primary covers were 21 or 22 gauge, the two areas that I cut out and the baffle I made out of 18 gauge, mainly because that was what I had but where the two mounting brackets were you always see them welded or brazed or bolted back on because the metal was thin and weak. Thank you for the positive feedback, I make mistakes too and I hope by my mistakes we all learn either through trial and error or someone that has done it right before and showing us how to do it right, never too old to teach an old dog new tricks, hence the bracket riveted on upside down.

    Yep, someone has already done it and done it better, I'm hoping by this build that people will chime in with better ways than I am doing this and we all can learn.

    "Huh, my first wife said I never finished anything?"

    My first wife said that "we're growing apart". She's gone, and I'm still waiting for the part to arrive !

    She probably got that in the settlement and didn't disclose it.

    Does anyone have the ID of the right and left case bushings and the OD's for the pinion shaft and sprocket shaft or where I can get them. I'm getting ready to start my motor. Thank you.

    Ok, I'm back...I spent two days sorting, finding and glass beading parts to send off to get cad plated. 80 pieces 15 pounds worth, I'm glad they charge by the pound and not the piece. I won't tell you where I am sending them, if they come back really nice I will give them a commercial, if not...well I just won't say anything.



    I think I got everything, I did find a few pieces that need pakerized yet.

    I still need to find a place to get a sleeve and the OD's of the pinion and sprocket shaft and the ID's of both case bushings and rod bushings.

    Got this probably from one of you guys off of flea-bay, the pictures speak for themselves. I bought the repair piece off of Rat from Harbor Vintage.
