congratulations on your wedding,

I have got a quick question when you were making the GTR to cosworth bellhousing,you had it bolted to a ford cylinder block does it matter what block it is ? does it have to be a cosworth block and crank.

You could bolt it to a thick plate as long as you make sure nothing can move with the heat.

The block I have is a pinto block so exactly the same as a cosworth block for the purpose of bolting up a dummy box and sump,

The crank is different but it's only being used as a centreline guide to align using a turned centering tool I made that sits over the crank end and the box input guide slides in the other end to make sure the 2 are perfectly aligned

Getting a bit of time to do a few bits on the car

When I fitted the skyline box I just hacked and bodged and re welded the exhaust to fit quickly as I was pushed for time for some reason, ford fair I think!

It sits too low at the flexi which has damaged it and was just crap in general compared to how nicely it was done originally when I made it to suit the cossie box

A few pics










So I'm going to re make it, only the middle section will be redone, just to tuck it up out the way again and fit a new flexi,


Whilst I'm on it I will do a bit more to meet the msa logbook regs

Very nice thanks mate but was itching to get back and get on with things lol

Yeah it was so nicely routed for the cossie box and I just didn't have the time back then to re do it and I've just left it ever since,

Time to get it done nicely again

Hello, Marc, cheers from Brazil!
I found out your project when googling for ideas to customize my Fiesta.
I've been reading this topic for about a month (it's over 120 pages! lol) and I am really impressed.
You've got very good taste and great manufacturing and welding skills!
Congrats on your project!
Oh, and also congrats on your wedding!
Regards!

No i didn't mate as i was almost out of gas and i welded them autogenously so you do not get hardly any sugaring compared to with using filler, some people don't think its a good way to do it but if your fit up is perfect with no gap at all and its not designed to last a lifetime then theres nothing wrong with doing it this way, admittedly with filler will be slightly stronger but its not really required in a fully supported exhaust like this

Still haven't got round to the rest of the changes to get it log booked as i have been too busy lately

But on a better note, after 15 and a half years in the drainage game and only self teaching welding in my shed via youtube and the likes i have now become a full time welder/fabricator
for "Airtec Motorsport"

Mainly ally welding of coolers and tanks etc but also doing some development fabrication on new parts as and when needed and some mild and stainless stuff as well

Massive change of career for me and a drop in money but for the first time in a long time i really enjoy going to work even if im batch welding coolers etc and it benefits me in every way to learn more about welding and some aspects of fabrication etc

Thanks
Marc

Wow that’s some career change, well done! Amazing what opportunities you can make for yourself. Big believer in doing something you enjoy and get an interest from, rather than something just for the money aspect.

Hope all goes well !
