    Comments are always welcomed

    Thanks for the reply guys;
    and Zardoz, I appreciate your candor, I really do.
    A very to the point, yet politically correct statement of opinion.

    Here are some older construction pics I dug up as gratuity.


    I have some "misting" video around somewere. I'll see if I can't dig that up. I seem to remember that the video worked while the pics didn't...

    did you up the water/methane injection rate?...looks a bit over 17cc per min

    It can be misleading in the video, that is a teaspoon, not a tablespoon; backyard measures. :D

    1 teaspoon=4.9289ml
    1 teaspoon=23s

    There is some realtime adjustment available; +/- 50%.

    Actually, the only reason I had the video was that I didn't have a timer with second hand sweep in the shop at the time, but I had the recorder and tuned via the playback.

    After watching Greg's video, I got all motivated again. So I got the truck out of the storage lot (mud hole) and got some stuff done.

    What do you think? Too much?



    I was going for the "POLICE" look, but it seems like something's missing.

    I also found a cracked vac line, so they all came out. That's the pile on the foor.:frustration:

    If your looking for the "Black and White" look like you say... then i suggest more black. Usually all black but only the doors white?? Something blocky like that.. Im thinking at least the frame and tool box black... Love the wheel/Tire combo.

    You caught me on that one. I should have been more descriptive there, but yea, I was talking about the wheel/tire combo and getting the "POLICE" look. Took me along time to figure out what combination would work best with a no-lift, no-rub, no-spacer, no-modification, max-size, police-look; "bolt-on" combination.
    Eventually, I plan on going with a black vinyl wrap...less the doors, for a madmax "interceptor" look...tricky, cus enforcement around here don't appreciate that kind of thing and I'm already pushing it with the right-hand-drive thing...and my "drifting" driving style dosen't help either I guess.:D

    you know the MFP yellow/blue/orange would look pretty cool..and you couldn't be "accused " of trying to look like a mainstream Police vehicle...even with gumballs on the roof...the wheels you have look great though

    You Sir, are a very bad influence on me...cuz..I kind of like it..

    You think I could get away with the badge on the door?:pop:

    Damn right you could.....:):):):):):):):pop:

    Myself I would occasionally dress up in an MFP uniform and only use direct quotes from the movie no matter what anyone asks...

    "She sips nitro... with Phase 4 heads! 600 horsepower through the wheels! She's meanness set to music and the bitch is born to run! "

    "The chain in those handcuffs is high-tensile steel. It'd take you ten minutes to hack through it with this. Now, if you're lucky, you could hack through your ankle in five minutes. Go. "

    "Jimmy the Goose, larger than life and twice as ugly! "

    "That scag and his floozie, they're gonna die! "

    "I think we've got some hoon trouble..."

    Those five would work in most situation.....example.
    ."Welcome to Tim Hortons my name is Wendy can I help you?"
    ......"That scag and his floozie, they're gonna die! "
    "Excuse me???"
    "She sips nitro... with Phase 4 heads! 600 horsepower through the wheels! She's meanness set to music and the bitch is born to run! "

    See? perfect...it feeds the need for sartorial outlandishness,the inner thespian,and 13 year old hooliganism without breaking any rules..

    Keep it up and you'll see some picks of me getting out of the truck at Timmys' in full "wasteland" leather garb, with sawed-off sidearm:D

    As for the counter banter, I'm more of a "excuse me...have you seen this boy", picture presentation get me my coffee free...;)

    It appears you have some spot on alignment..:)

    Yea, I needed that laser equipment to finish off the Multi Mount. Five components all on one mounting bed. There's no room for individual mountings. I used just about every peice of equipment in the shop making this sucker. A mig sure would have been nice. The 6013s were kicking my ass, trying to weld around corners and through holes...in the engine bay.




    I think I've done just about all I care to this week. :sly:

    Welding quick tip...

    For anyone considering welding in the engine bay, stick or mig..

    Put a rag over the main pulley drive assembly...even if it catches fire..

    The spalding actually fused....now I have to pull it...

    The fun with lasers continues...


    Multi Mount installed
    Pulleys 4, 5, and 6 are now alignned in their new positions
    4040335 Gatorback ordered :D

    6 pulleys and 9 components, all installed and perfectly aligned.
    What did guys do before lasers? :pop:

    Spanner I hear ya on the lasers... years ago my dad and I invented a machine to assemble pvc components... it was a BEAST to align. I finally convinced our company to let me trial a brand new laser alignment rig (at that time the tech was pretty much brand new on the market). VIOLA! I was able to bring my machine reset time down by more than half!

    Would LOVE to go for a ride in your beast sometime but you live a long way away... so I'll have to build my own... lol... ya right!

    Keep up the great work!

    Thanks Zardoz,

    It's guys like you (AND OTHERS) that modavate me to keep comming back to this site..and remember to stop...and take a photo...:D

    You've dabbled in robotics a bit so I know that you understand what I'm talking about most of the time. I call it an art, but it's more than that, it surrounds us, it binds us, the rock, the tre...sorry bout that...I mean that it is a moving mechanical art form. It seems to have life; a life that at first, was only imagined, and as the form takes shape, it grows, seamingly of it's own accord, to fill the space and application.

    That is why I do this, not to see it done, but to see the form take shape.

    The same could be said for a hobby like a grow-op, wouldn't you say? ;)

    The laser equipment was bang on, 2mm clearance at all crossover locations:


    and from previous posts:

    If we could get Greg to post up some of his exterior video, I feel that it would help to modivate all of us...:D

    Be nice to hear from Welder and how the "Drifter" is comming along...:confused:

    There is FA wrap on that alternator, maybe you need to put in another idler pulley.

    I couldn't call it...


    Hey Harley, where you been hiding? How's the bike build going? :pop:

    You're totally right about the Alt belt wrap. It's been on my mind since I changed to the second design and always had the back-up plan of putting in a second idler, if necessary. I just couldn't see if it was needed one way or the other. In the first design I had both the AC and Alt at a 25%/25% shared wrap and realized that the AC would require a much higher torque than the Alt. So I changed it to a 40%/10% wrap, with the thought that it might still be enough for such a small Alt.

    Once the belt was on I couldn't break it loose by hand and got 26"lb on the wrench to break it loose from the belt. Not too bad...during the idle/run-up check, I loaded up all the electrical with a half dead bat...seemed OK. :confused:


    Have you posted anything on your superbike?
