Well the snow slowed me down for a while, but I got back to working on stuff again. Allow me to share some of my aluminum ****.

The intake heat shield thing.


















Working on a gasket to fill the void around the intake tube. I'll finish later this week.

Thanks for the compliment. It has been a journey. I'm on the fence with the pan. I have a ton of leftover partz, so I was just going buy it, weld a -10 bung on, then flip it to the MT community. Not sure what the market is like though. I think most people just drill n tap.

You make serious progress though. I seem to move at a snail pace.

This is my solution to sealing the space between the intake and the heat shield. A piece of 1/8" urethane. I don't think it will melt. Probably not. Maybe.



And one last engine pic.



I tried to drive the damn thing for the first time on 14 months. Brake master cylinder pooped all over the floor. I'm getting used to this sort of thing.

Urethane is a thermoset material. It will not melt.

Are you thinking of silicone? I melted the holes for the rivets in this urethane, and have messed around withe friction welding urethane at work. Either way, I think it's probably fine.

Traditional Urethanes, or actually Polyurethanes are themosets. TPU's are blends of Urethanes in a matrix of thermoplastics that have properties of both. Not sure what you have. Many TPU's are automotive grade materials. There may be other classes, but I'm not aware.

And you you are certainly correct that time will tell.

Glad you are getting so close.

Finished my Splitter quick release rear mounts. I definitely stole this idea from someone, but I can't remember who.
