Final result.

Had to set a 5/4 board under it for it to sit decent.

good work JB

whats the plans for the project? are you doing a restore?

Getting the youngsters involved is great. The kid with the adhd
will really benefit from the hands on if he likes it.

No restore. Really loving survivor status. Started teardown on the engine right around December 2015 because a bad crank seal sucked the trans dry and decided to rebuild.

Just a heads up. The crossover tube and manifolds are not genuine Yamaha. It could possible get a hole and suck in air. I'd hate to see all that hard work be for nothing. Get a pair of real Banshee manifolds and crossover for peace of mind.
