Well been toying with different ideas for the exhaust. My manifold exit is upward with no room for elbows. So I cut a hole in my hood and kinda liked the look. That would require some kind of easy detaching to open the hood. I was cleaning up my shop with my very old trusty vacume cleaner and it hit me. My vacume pipe was chrome and had a flash attach already on it.  Was not long and it was cut up and did the job perfectly. Being a very old vacume (70's) the pipe is thick and the flash attach is very rugged. I used my original flange and short piece of pipe that my vacume pipe slid over nicely. length from the hood to top is 22 inch.

Started working on the fuel tank. I cut a part of a 7 inch aluminum pipe about an 1/8 thick. Then cut two caps that slide in a 3/16 for each end. I have a spool gun for my mig but thinking maybe just brazing the parts. I have the rods and flux and have had pretty good results in the past. The idea would be to buff it to chrome after. Or just  purchase  one on ebay lol for some crazy price. Is it just me or have ebay prices gone nuts these days?

So started in on the rad setup. Its not very big so decided to put two 6 inch fans 275 cfm each. I removed all the original brackets and put two aluminum angles to give me something to work with. I then cut a sheet of aluminum and put the two 6 inch holes for the fans and did a bit of bending to give it some strenght and allowed me to fasten it. next step is to conjure up some way to mount it but at least with the angles I have something to work with.

Those are off a dirt bike right? Usually they use 2 rads and can over heat but don't have fans so 1 with fan may do a lot for cooling

Yah I hope with the fans it will be ok. I have a friend with this setup on a Yanmar and he has no problems. For now I am keeping the 905 stock without turbo.
