Machining carb and manifold pictures.

Yeah, I said machining a carb! First of all, I have an amazing brother (Mark) who has enough knowledge, skills, tools and patience to pull of some interesting repairs. Finally posting pics:

1) Weber 32/36. Carb had a loose top (PO) and vibrated so much that it wore the top uneven. "No problem" says Mark, we can use epoxy as filler and then machine it smooth. Works flawlessly!

2) Upgrading to 38DGES..need more power! Mark says, "Don't take the intake manifold to the machine shop, I'll do it." Using his home/hobby lathe he hogs it out. Yes Mike, this is the one you gave me:
