Re: Tornado GT40 in Texas

John,

Thanks for the question. Actually, I'm almost through. I have been devoting all my spare time to building instead of updating my build log. I plan to do that when I get through. I'm trying to make an April drive day. I have a lot of interesting things to report, but no time to do so...

You guys are welcome to come by and see the progress.

-Bob Woods

Re: Tornado GT40 in Texas

Looking great Bob! Are you going to be able to fit the air cleaners under the glass?

Re: Tornado GT40 in Texas

Mike,


Good catch. I originally had 50 mm bellmouths on the throttles. The photo shows the 50 mm bellmouths. I switched them out for 35 mm bellmouths because the 50s wouldn't clear at all with the filters on. Although I haven't installed the rear glass yet, it appears that number 8 (the farthest back) is the only one that is going to barely touch unless the glass is more curved than I think. I'm planning to slice the rubber part of that air filter and then bond it back together.


I'm sure others have had this problem. How did you solve it?

Re: Tornado GT40 in Texas

Mike,


Good observation. I originally had 50 mm bellmouths on the throttles. That is what is shown in the photos. I switched them out for 35 mm bellmouths because the 50s wouldn't clear at all. Now, it appears that number 8 (the farthest back on the left) is the only one that might just touch the glass.. I haven't installed the rear glass yet, and unless it is more curved than I think, I will have to modify #8. I'm planning to slice the rubber part of that air filter and then bond it back together. There are some other approaches that would work.

Re: Tornado GT40 in Texas

Mike,


Sorry for the double post previously...


I put the rear window on and it is curved just enough to clear the #8 air filter with a 1/4" to spare. I'm glad I ordered the 35 mm bellmouths.
