Hi Adam
I needed an exhaust elbow for my 17-28 and one for my 27-44. I ordered 2 1/2 inch and 3 inch elbows from McMaster Carr. Then I found a piece of scrap pipe to make the collars out of. I had to make a cut in the side of the collar to get the right diameter and weld it back together. Then I welded the collars to the elbows and ground the welds smooth. On the 2 1/2 inch elbow I cut 1 1/4 inch off the other end of the elbow and on the 3 inch elbow I cut 1 1/2 inch off the end of the elbow. The set screws and jam nuts came from Menards. The 1st picture is the elbows before fab work. The 2nd picture is the finished elbows. The 3rd picture is installed on the 17-28. The 4th picture is installed on the 27-44.

Those steel fabricated turnouts came out nice. It's hard to tell that they actually aren't cast iron. What's the wall thickness on those elbows?

Not any significant updates. Going to need a few more valves than planned and guides. Currently still cussing at 250116 at the moment. Having troubles locating at least 10 valve springs that don't cost 40$ a piece. Been fixing littles on 146 in preparation for spring when I hope to dig into it.

Nice elbows! I may just go that route unless you made up extras Jim.

Thanks for the update. Were you able to find a piston?
I'm currently trying to work through an unexpected problem with the main bearing shells. Closer inspection revealed that they had run loose in the bores for some time and now are slightly undersize on the OD...the front main being the worst.
Pat Bayer has a new set of valve springs listed for sale in classifieds for $12 a pop. Probably never find them cheaper than that.

I find the easiest way to post pictures is to take them with my phone, email them to myself in the medium scale. I can then save the pictures and post with no problem.

Yes mark I found a n.o.s piston from a friend. Traded him out of it fairly reasonable.

Well today #146 went into the shop for a mechanical resurrection. Should be easier after doing a couple already but there is always surprises to be had. Try to post pics here and there.

Yes! Been a while since I've updated this thread. 146 is going back together over past 2 months with a plan to start in late March. Had a hold up with just about every unplanned that could appear and life, work etc. Sometimes the nit picky things consume the most time. Unplanned timing parts repairs and many small items etc. But you all know that song and dance a time or two.
