Here's the vacuum tank for the brakes.....I scored it at a swap meet for $5....I didn't take a snap of it before I beadblasted it, but it had no paint left on it, it was just rust coloured.
It's from a Mitsubishi truck.

I have nearly finished making the Car Rotisserie......it's been damn hot here, over 40 degrees, and in the shed it's been 45+......having a fan blowing doesn't make it any cooler either.
Just gotta make a locking mechanism, and get some RHS for the centre joiner.

The engine is 0.040" over, has a low compression head IIRC, fully balanced, etc.....I built it back in about '95......I will be pulling it down, re-ring it, stud it, rod bolts, cam and sprockets, bearings if it needs it, another head with big valves....etc, etc....
It's been sitting since 1998.....it had a manifold on it, rags shoved in it, etc....I have since removed the intake and headers, sprayed a heap of Inox MX3 downs the holes and shoved rags in the holes.
I need to leave the engine in at the moment, so I can work out the g'box tunnel and scatter shield.
I have grafted in a later model Val subframe hoop.....did that many years ago.

Was thinking of leaving the steering as std......If you look closely in the pic, you will see the AP6 remote oil filter mounting and pipes.

I finished making a lock on the Rotisserie.....I had some 32mm solid round, and some hollow bar (machined that to suit the bar).....and another old Rack End for a handle.....fits nicely into the m/bike sproket.

There are 8 turns between holes in the sproket, and takes 20 turns per 90* degrees of body rotation.
Just need to get some more 65mm RHS for the centre link.....which fits nicely inside the 75x75x4mm RHS front legs.
I used 3/4" grade 10 bolts for the upright pins......and a pair of 3 tonne high lift jacks....500mm of stroke.

225 cubes + 0.040" = 230 cubes.

bore of 3.44" (0.040" O.S.) x stroke of 4.125" .

The VE/VF had a cast iron filter mount.....the AP6 had an alloy one.....not sure what the VC had.
