  • 29th October 2011 – Making of coil bracket and fitting

    Over the last week Mark has been busy making a specially made bracket to mount the coil to the engine block. He started by making templates from cardboard before marking up the shapes on aluminium. Then using a hacksaw cut them out and filing down to get the exact shape, always checking the bracket fitted against the engine. He then marked the bolt holes and drilled them out. To do the wield we used our uncle Dave again who helped us TIG wield the pieces together. Final job was to tap a thread in the holes for the bolts, file down the wield smooth and polished it up nice and shiny. The coil is now neatly positioned to the side of the block next to the distributor.
