Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Well ive been trying to keep up some progress...I've got most of the drivetrain done..I've been waiting on a 3 lever shifter boot to get here so I can finish it up..the IH has 3 levers and a shifter stuck thru the floorboard..these shifters never had boots on them..all they had was flat rubber with slits in it for the lever movement..
So I've been working on the valve cover adapters...here's the progress so far...I started with some 1/46 alum flat bar...I traced the outline of the valve and cut it out...then I cut out the center to fit snuggly over the LS valve cover..they will sit on the lip of the LS valve cover..

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Here the adapters are on the valve covers in place to check for clearances..
I cut the inside hole so that it fits snuggly over the LS cover..

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

I had to make a bushing for my transfer punchs to mark the valve covers holes to the aluminum..this holds it centered in the hole..the punch tips kept the punch higher than the vc hole.so this solved that issue

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Here's how I did the plate hold downs...simple brackets bent out of some 1/8" flat stock..
I'll have to take them to work to weld the brackets to the adapters..just to keep things from moving around...
Coils will be relocated to the rear of the engine..

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

I'll be painting the valve covers the same color as the body color red..I also had the IH script made in silver mettalic for them...maybe it'll look ok when done...
