New Case Halfs

Hey guys, I brought the topic of manufacturing new case halfs awhile back since we all know that at some point the supply of oem honda ones will be gone. Well I've gotten the equipment i needed to copy the oem ones, so here is where i am at.

I am in the process of talking to casting companies to try and determine the cost, and the amount of cases that would be required. I am still trying to determine the feasability as well as the demand for them. So if i was able to reproduce them would people be interested?? I would also get with C-Leigh Racing to discuss the possibilites of strengthening known weak points, would you guys be interested in these?? I'm just trying to gauge interest before i invest too much money and time.

So if this project does continue i will need a couple of people to volunteer case halfs that i can 3-D image. What i need are a left half and a right half. I know that some of you guys have undamaged ones laying around. I realize that you will be shipping them to me based on faith, and if there are any concerns or if you are interested please PM me. All I am trying to do is make sure that these machines live on.

So if you guys have any input please feel free to email me [email protected], PM, or post here. Any help or comments will be appreciated.

I am also working on getting examples of what the 3-D scanner can do. When i get these examples i'll be sure to post them.

Thank you for your time.

I would also check out block castings..(skip the initial casts $'s) & fees related to
the outward appearance dont have to look exactly same ..its the inside & mounting that matters ;)

a very good programmer , 3-d (& 3-d models etc) & reverse engineering could save tons on some stuff..
never underestimate the modern 120-150 tooled "revolver type" mills nowadays ..its run time costs that could kill it ..if ya if ya have to pay for "specials" runs at an expensive shop
if your gonna do "quick change" covers ..(clutch covers)... there is also 2 different covers that work for these R motors
damn all this time & nothing from him .. hmmm :unsure:
a pic of patriot's polished Q / C cover mod..( cover purchased & polished seperately) ..
