    Ivan Stewart Modern motors Chenowth 1000 replica build

    Wow it looks really great, just really pops in real life. Actually brings something we only had magazine pictures of into real life, just what you would want in a museum experiance. It is really nice to see the whole perspective of what the car was. As example I didn't really think about where...

    Ivan Stewart Modern motors Chenowth 1000 replica build

    It's kinda surreal knowing there is C1RL1W 3 just sitting 20ft from me in my garage everytime I see pictures of this car. I just hope I can find somebody here in Ohio that can lay paint and pin striping as fantastic as the guys that did Rorys when the time comes. It is truly Beautiful. The pin...

    I Pulled the Wright Rack apart and found it in really nice condition so it must have been close to new before the car was moth balled. I have pulled a few Wright racks apart and found most had wear on the pinion head, but this one did not. The pain was cleaning out all the white Lithium grease...

    In my case I could get every single part new for the Jamar Masters, but I had to use multiple sources to do it. I admit I could have bought brand new masters actually for less money. The Jamar bores were in perfect condition so I was able to keep them and maintain the vintage OE setup which is...

    I am in full swing getting the little things done but all the businesses including my access to the machine shop have closed. Since I am attached to a University I can not work in it until this stuff is over. I am in self quaranteen and really have not been able to go out other than working in...

    HOTEL ROOM RESELLERS AT NORRA, WHAT ABOUT IT ?

    Maybe Norra should start doing it, at least we would have a familiar partner in obtaining rooms. Maybe even change the dates a little and not give them out until you get the hotels secured in the future races. I agree lets not support this guy.

    It looks Outstanding Rory, I am further along on mine then I expected at this point in time, but have not kept up on posting, I forget half the time to take enough photos so I think it will become a big photo dump unfortunantly. I know what it takes to do this and still have time to post up. I...

    I too think it is all BS and a disgusting mess. The class is some kind of Mutant class right now and is so far away from the original intent that it is a mockery of C11. I have no problem getting German drums and the like. Dave reflects what I feel about this. As an example I talked to Dennis...

    Thanks Rory I will make use of that contact if I have another one made someday. Unfortunantly I already ordered it to be done last month. I should have looked back in your thread but I get busy and just did not think about it after I talked to UMP. It won't be a UMP which is disappointing but it...

    Ahhh it must have been you then that got the last one, but yeah they said they were done making wings. I thought it was Rory, but when I looked back on the thread I saw it was somebody else.

    Ivan Stewart Modern motors Chenowth 1000 replica build

    I talked to UMP about this a little over a month ago when I was trying to get one made. They were pretty firm that their wing was designed to provide stability at higher speeds and fully functional. My Chenowth never raced with one but my partner was fixated on putting one on. I tried to...

    On Topic Whats going on with Class 9?

    If they bring the early class 9 rules back to where it was in the 80's except running the 1200cc engine. I will for sure run the vintage Chenowth 1000 I am restoring. It is formatted as a vintage class1 to run Norra now but easily can be put back to early class 9 rules, so then I could run both...

    I made 3/4" id hardened rod end spacers for the link setup. 4 at .350 for the existing upper double shear, and 12 at .400 for the new double shears for the upper and lower links.

    Cleaned and blasted the original Jamar Brake masters which had 30+ years of brake fluid sludge. New kits from Kartek and a fine quick hone. Brake pedal will have some grip points added to it as it was just a rubber pad which for me is not good when it gets muddy or wet.

    I have been funneling the front and rear arms over to my metal shop so I can weld in the double shear plates on the rear arms and move the front shock mount forward a bit. This was the color I found on the rear arm before I vapor blasted it for welding and the powder coat. I was going round and...

    The seat cover is finished, I wish the crotch belt had not left a shadow, but I think replacing the cloth just for that is not really going to matter since the cloth is in such good shape after cleaning. Vinyl was in perfect shape also after cleaning.

    I finished putting on new foam and completed the lacing. The outer Upholstery is next to go on then that finishes the original seat. The seat had never been apart since new so I duplicated the way it was laced up and the tension on the cords. I added an additional 2" in padding to what was...

    Before the seat fiasco I tore down my 091 core trans and the 002 3rib built by Dave Kreisler that came in the car. My core was original and had never been taken apart before so all of the components were low milage and I can use a lot of them in the new build. I will be changing the gearing from...
