all systems have many dynamics that with change will have effect.  keep it as close to how it was designed for least chance of screwing it up.  on my first 49 build i really screwed it up.  was undrivable 2000-3000rpm

Episode of Engine Masters on MT pretty much debunked the crossover pipe and back pressure thing. It really comes down to sound. Crossover evens and mellows it a bit.

I talked myself out of two pipes going right out the back..
working on the correct flange size at the moment..
I just need to get the exhaust past the bulkhead so I can start on more productive things..
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

started test fitting the rest of the body work..
minimal trimming to the seat box is all that will be required..

not using the early 2a grill, need to mock up radiator for lower hose positioning..

Got to focusing on the motor this past weekend.
I went fairly stock on the lines and accelerator mounting..  I knew accelerator pedal would be a challenge.. starting to figure out some options.

I also doubled back and swapped the driver exhaust manifold.  Clutch slave isn’t in as bad shape and I still have adequate clearance for steering.. this should also enable me to start with the stock Y pipe for the frankenstein exhaust.
Nice to have matching manifolds now..  it was slightly bothering me..

Does a return fuel line need to go deep into the tank (bellow fuel level) or can it simply be a fitting on top of the tank?

Also decided to “keep it Jeep” with the radiator as well...
All the rover radiators I’ve tested have all
Come back with bad cores...   got a new V6 aluminum unit that I think I’ll be able to fab in.

Very similar width and height, and best of all hose outlets are oriented correctly for the motor.   I’m thinking some angle for new side brackets and still an electric fan..

sealed the deal with the previous owner of the truck I'm working on..
He allowed me the privilege of helping him clean out his basement.. take a few things that were missing from the original purchase and was more than happy to sell me the rest..  was no issue filling up the Comanche.

Score of the trip was the used 1 summer canvas top, hoop set and tailgate..  seems he didn't have any friends to help him lift the hardtop off after his divorce..






Also had some quiet time with no wife at home this past weekend...
Those evenings are uninterrupted fab nights.. so I made some headway on the seat box/tunnel and floor.
it took an hour of staring and a couple botched tunnel adapters... but I think I'm there..  T case shifters should function as normal, just might need to be elongated to pass through tunnel..

only screwed up and put 1 unnecessary hold in the bulkhead [bghd]  ill hide it somehow..

New England Chrome Plating called and 47 brackets or trim pieces all done (Zinc electroplate)
Frontier Galvanizing should have their stuff done next week (hopefully)
Box of Lucas arrived from across the pond
Wife is gone tue-sat..

There should be some nice progress on this guy..
