New to me squarenose

I fiberglassed the tray back last night. I think it should work well. Brought this sano pad set from back home that I had. Should look pretty retro.

I still need to put on the watcon hood seal I just got. I hope that should really help with water getting in.

I got my bars from back home on and a new finger throttle.

Does anybody know of a good way to keep water out of the fire extinguisher tube? Does the seal go bad?

I hope I can get it done and on the water Sunday.

All finished for now.

The sano pad fitment is pretty bad and the cuts are not straight at all but i think i got it like 10 years ago for like 25 bucks so it works for now.

Pretty pumped on my changes. The hood seal and stock F/A combo fixed the water in the motor issue i was having with every dunk. The turf has so much better grip and the bars are so much better. I sold my trailer and got this hitch hauler. So much better in the garage without the trailer. I need to figure out an easier way to tie this thing down. But it works good.

now it just needs a 701 or 760, tray defoam, probably foot holds, new pump shoe and and insert fixed for the front bolt of the intake grate.

Anybody have an idea of what i should be spending for a motor right now?

Seems like no carbs or electronics is maybe in the 500-600 range and with all that stuff maybe in the 1000 range?

That engine combo is interesting. (I don't need it.) The seller listed it here too. I would call him or pm and ask him why he is going back to a 61x:

I pm him on pwctoday. Honestly I kinda want just a stock motor out of a couch for cheaper and I can do the mods I want instead of questioning what somebody did.

Should be a decent combo , think of it this way it's basically a big bore 701, 64x sleeves slide right into a 62t cylinder, the 62 sleeve is just a thicker sleeve, so instead of boring the 701 out to 760 they put 760 sleeves in it, make sense to me. If you are both in COLORADO I know what I would do. Given what exhaust systems alone are going for this is a no brainer.

I would assume he is after more bottom end hit as the 62t-64x has higher porting, really all that matters is how fast you can get the engine into it's usable powerband.I have swapped a lot of 62T and 64x cylinders on sitdowns before, truefully unless some one told you you would never notice the difference.
 
He is not in Colorado. He is in Vegas. Honestly I am looking more a full stock motors in the 500 dollar range. Then could buy a new b pipe and head down the road. Seems like those big cast pipes ppl have a lot of issues. Not sure but back in the day I had a riva red pipe and it came apart every other ride. Honestly trying to keep it a bit cheaper at the moment also.

The Riva red pipe was a huge heavy a$$ pipe and yes they had some issues, the PROTEC pipe is a very solid piece, if you have good lord mounts you won't have any issues with that pipe, but hey they only want , $1099.00 plus shipping for a B pipe and it's out of stock. I would keep that in mind. Also there is a lot of resale value on that deal or at least it looks that way to me.
