Default Re: New Build (raw engine)

I'm not sure what the thickness is about 1/8 I will have to measure it. It is thicker than the fenders on my Bultaco, and they have cracks at the fasteners. I was thinking of making a backer at the engine, I think if I get cracks it would be in around the bolts. I have no clue what the alloy is it came from a scrap picking. I have no hard bends and so I think that should keep the stress from building up at those points. Thanks for all the help, I only got to use CAD at a machine shop I used to work for years ago. I can't imagine what it would be like now. I still love to draw and have a Drafting board in the shop. If this works I will next sandwich rubber between the surfaces like the mod to the motor mounts on my Model A Ford. I am not sure if the rubber isolates or nulls the vibration! Having fun, Dave
Its just a job. (Link) My shop is in the lower R/H corner.
