Looks good! I can't tell you how many of my vanes are broken or bent to the point they'd break if I tried to bend them back. Still not sure what to do with my hinge to try and get it to fit. Maybe you can figure it out when you're over.Well I decided to go the replacement route so I went up to Ft. Chaffee this morning to salvage the hood off the parts truck.
Had to get my wife to help me, now that's a debt I can never repay if you know what I mean.
Got the hood home, it had a few problems. The dvr side corner was broke and the reinforcement plate bent almost in half.
I threw it in my forge, got her hot and beat it out kinda straight, pulled the broken corner together and bolted it back together.
Several other dings and dents but no broken vanes. I think it's gonna work!
And the hinge is in perfect shape.
I would be happy to take a look at it.Looks good! I can't tell you how many of my vanes are broken or bent to the point they'd break if I tried to bend them back. Still not sure what to do with my hinge to try and get it to fit. Maybe you can figure it out when you're over.
Thats the million dollar question. The previous owner(before Warthog) told me when he got the engine it was out of time, and this resulted in a bent valve.Looks clean, did your friend say what would cause so many valves to bend?
Hope your trip in to town was productive. I think the schedule for your goat will speed up once you really get in to it. It's tough not to spend way more time (and money) on them than you start out thinking.Met up with mkcoen at his bunker today, I dropped of a couple of goat goodies with him and he filled up my car
Great to meet you Mark, appreciate the hospitality, 9 hours back to my casa tomorrow but the trip was well worth it, thanks again.
Nothing on mine but the same 2 screws. I would imagine it was some type of seal to finish closing the gap between the engine cover and bulkhead.Anyone know what is supposed to be on the front edge of the hood where it meets the bulkhead ?
There are two screws there so I would assume there is supposed to be a rubber gasket of some type. Never seen one there, every truck I have seen it is missing.
