Chenoweth SV-16 repairs and upgrades

Recommended Posts

Made some progress this weekend. finished up the engine cage. It was a pain to figure out how to keep it removable but also be stout. Also finished up the radiator mount and some other small stuff.

Pretty happy with the overall look so far. Did a bunch of welding today. Hope to finish up fab, welding, and tear down next weekend

Good  work,is there room. To flip the Intake around to face forward? Makes the throttle cable a little easier and the air cleaner gets less dirty. Would help protect throttle body in case of a rollover, and would smooth out the scorpion stinger look it has now...

That would look cleaner for sure. Not sure if there is enough room but I will check.  I put the "beauty bars" on the rear to try and sink the motor in the frame more.

No major hurdles this weekend. I did not like the look of the 3 vertical down tubes in the rear without anything tying them together so I made a plate with perforated steel filler to break up the down tubes. I plan to box the bottom of them in.

Pulled the motor and trans out last week and brought the trans to Wright gearbox. And dropped the roller off at my friends shop. My buddy finished up the roof and we picked it back up. 

Got a call from Rick @Wright Gearbox Friday and the trans is in bad shape. Needs a new ring and pinion and a couple gears. Repairs are over $3k. That would wipe out most of the remaining budget. Fortunately my dad kept the trans from my car that should be in good shape. I will be dropping it off at Wright today to get it looked at.

Roof is simple and has a small wing built in for a light strip.
