I love old railroad artifacts. Who owned the tracking rights on that bridge?
Old Pennsylvania Railroad?
New York Central?
The Erie?
Reading?
Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad?
Nickel Plate Road?

Re: RSHADD's Build Journal

I pick up a used TBSS engine cover from a guy on the TBSS Owners forum recently.

I did a quick test fitting this evening and I confident that it's going to work with a little bit of modding. I still need to pick up the mounting hardware, but the hood closes OK and that was my major concern. I'm still not sure if it's gonna rub or not yet.

I don't think it's going to need much trimming either, it fits pretty damn good just the way it is.

Here's a couple of pics...








All the mounting locations are already on the intake.

Get some cheap clay at the dollar store and place some all around the cover and close the hood.

The smashed clay will tell you how much clearance, if any, between the cover and the bottom of the hood.

hope it fits with out rubbing the hood. my stock intake tube touched the hood insulator, i know this because there was a mark on the hood insulator from the rubbing.

Re: RSHADD's Build Journal

see, i figure they didnt have a cover on the engine for a reason.

either way, i wish you luck and hope it works. that cover looks really nice and probably protects alot of shit that needs it.

also, i love this thread rich. youre doing a hell of a job with the details and pics. saves me asking so many questions. :kiki:
