OST-048: Спасибо товарищ Сталин

Postby oldeskewltoy » Fri Apr 06, 2018 8:41 am

As to the title.... :lol:

While I've seen a few poor smallport castings.... this one is a pretty good casting, with decent chambers, and pretty good port-bowl alignment. What it doesn't have is a good short radius..... on ALL of the bowls.... :roll:

more to come.... :D

In one of the email correspondences with this client..... "On my Cyrillic Russian keyboard when I typed "Спасибо товарищ" [thank you comrade] the next word suggestion that came up was "Сталин" [Stalin] looks like my phone is a cold war veteran & a good party member!"

So this engine will be using a set of ITBs. It will be using a T3 adapter.


The ITB adapter needs a bit of blending.....

Image


As do the intake ports... they too need some gentle blending

Image



I pick up the head later today, so more to come....... :D
