the engine. While I am finishing the C6 engine, I have also
been building a spare engine. We will run the C6 motor maybe
once and replace it with a vintage raceable 2 liter engine.
These are the magnesium housings and covers for the carrera
motor. They will be media blasted and given a coat of our
special formulated, combumerated paint.
of these valve covers show that they were of platinum color
(iradite). Some of these covers were olive or black, these
and the fan housing are also platinum.
so original, it's scary.
hub has been re-plated yellow zinc and will be re-riveted
to the fan.
the accessories are finished, I always do a trial assembly.
This enables me to make the spark plug wires proper lengths.
The accessories will then be removed and re-installed with
lines are ready to get plated yellow zinc. I have made a driver's
seat mold and will make the driver's seat next.
seat in most 906's and all 910's have this extrusion on the
outside edges. This enables the seat to index itself on top
of the seat frames. For you 906 guys out there that don't
have this seat shape, not all did.
of the shape of the extrusions, the seat mold has to be two
pieces so it can be separated from the part. The mold has
been sprayed with duratech and the glass will be applied next.
on vacation so Martin is taking care of rebuilding the front
brakes. The picture on the left shows all new parts purchased
from Stoddard of Ohio. The other picture shows two rebuilt
calipers ready for installation. Today, we leave early to
pick up our 906 molds from Max Crawford in North Carolina.
The timing is perfect that we will finish most of the mechanicals
next week and start making the body parts for final assembly
of the body to frame installation.
