Our 25hp case is back from the machine shop, line bored to 1st over and also machined to accept 30hp cylinders.
All the oil galleries have been fully cleaned and re-plugged as original, we have also made some modifications/improvements inside the case :-)

We decided it was time to start one of our new motor projects. After looking through our available cases, we decided to use one of our NOS unstamped 25hp aluminium ones.
Even though it's NOS we are sending it to be line bored to make sure it's perfectly straight, better safe than sorry!

We finally found some time to get back on the exhaust project.
Here you can see that the perforated is tacked, the sound deadening is in the back boxes and they have been closed.
In the last photo you can see it is nearly finished, tail pipe and the extensions to the J tubes are all Tig welded in place.
Just need to find some time to fabricate the J tubes and the bends to the exhaust ports.

Our good friend 'The Metal Shaper' has just finished his son Bjorn's pro bus.
This bus is so cool, it has it all, electric motors, space frame, hydraulics, custom made steering wheel, polished inner arches and he even hammered out a speedster seat.
Our personal favourite is the custom made graphics.
Now we all want one too......
