    Had a little spare time this morning and got them cast. I think they may be my best yet.







    I gated them similar to the previous versions but added a couple bobs to the tube openings below the elbows. I'd add some more detailed photos but.....uhh....you know.

    Thanks Mark. Starting to feel pretty good about the process control and am having first pass success. I have some other interesting related projects and experiments I'll share in the near future. -Stay tuned.

    All of the images in this thread were previously hosted on Phtobucket. When they changed their 3rd party hosting policy and fee structure I decided not to continue with them. I have re-hosted and restored the images elsewhere for posterity sake. However, I couldn't restore the images posted by other contributors to the thread. I have a few more things to add to this thread and then may be time to wrap this one up. I do have a few more interesting foam castings in the works. What do ya-think. Post here or new thread?

    Best,

    Seconded on new thread.

    How are those unions coupled to the head? Short hose links? I'm trying to imagine what would have been the original set up for the stat housing.

    If the new stuff is not directly related to this thread, and if we're voting, I vote for a new thread - otherwise keep them here.

    Agreed. Kind of ran it's course for the most part I think. I have some concluding thoughts and will start a new thread in near future.

    Yes

    I'm trying to imagine what would have been the original set up for the stat housing.
    They're racing intakes so there wasn't any thermostat. The two snouts were usually just coupled together with a fabbed/welded Y or T section of tube and hose then connected directly to the radiator. They are rare, have become quite collectable, and people are running these intakes on street cars and some are making "tribute car" versions of the old TA race cars that also see street duty. I rebuild and restore the induction systems as a hobby pass-time. Plenty of other ways to incorporate a remote thermostat but this does it cleanly looks the part.

    Best,
    Kelly
