AA machine-in, thick-wall 88 mm cylinder

AA machine-in, thick-wall 88 mm cylinder
57BLITZ
I found it necessary to modify the cooling fins on these A/A Performance 88 mm cylinders ... the fins (as cast) were too large causing an interference between the adjoining cylinders and preventing the cylinders from seating to the case.
I ground-off the edges of the fins for clearance.

I found it necessary to modify the cooling fins on these A/A Performance 88 mm cylinders ... the fins were too large causing an interference between the adjoining cylinders and preventing the cylinders from seating to the case.
This is after grinding the fins and now there is .050" clearance between the fins.

Breather box drain tube
57BLITZ
I drilled and tapped into the bottom of my bugpack breather box and connected a length of quarter inch vinyl tubing... It runs out of the engine compartment in under the car... I have it plugged until I need to drain it. This is almost entirely clear water that collected inside the breather box and drained into the vinyl tube!

two of these blocks clip to the regulator and sit against the door skin in order to cushion and prevent metal-to-metal contact.
