Thanks! I appreciate the compliments.

I have good start on the next series of patterns. These are for the Lower Water Manifold (Part No. A27A, A28A & A29A)

Here is a photo of the pattern and core boxes for A28A. As you can see its a four part pattern with a follower. The core is four parts too
and is glued together with a lap joint.

Currently I am working on the pattern and core boxes for this piece (A29A) Lower Water Manifold Front Section. Once thats complete
I only have the rear section to do then I will be done with the pattern work for the piping. All that will be left are the mounts for the
sparkplug wire tube and the oil filler cap.

Today I finshed fabricating the Valve Spring Cover Clamps (Part No. 034X). This was a good diversion away from pattern work though I must admit that fabricating 12 of these little buggers got a bit tedious.

Finished another pattern. This one is for the Lower water Manifold Front Section (Part No. A29A) Like all the water manifold fittings this too will be cast in bronze. Currently working on the core boxes than its onto fabricating the last of the water manifold patterns.

Here is a photo of the original piece I am duplicating. I made the straight section extra long on my pattern to allow for machining - turning to diameter and threading for the
coupling nut. Afterwards it will be parted-off to the correct length.
