I have two concerns informing my swirl pot mount:
- Ensure clearance between the steering column and fuel return hose.
- Ensure clearance on the bulkhead to mount high-pressure fuel pumps.
I knocked this together with a sheet of 4"x10" 14ga aluminum. Not necessarily ideal for every build but workable for mine. A minor, pretty straight forward modification of the swirl pot was base is necessary
LESSON LEARNED: The first time I riveted this to the frame I used a 1/8” bit and pop-rivets to hold the bracket in place. That didn’t work too well. Bumping up to 3/16” rivets with washers to spread load worked better.
CHALLENGES: I’ve literally messed up most of my rivnuts tools. They’ve been made of material much softer than than the steel threads of the nutserts.
The swirl pot will need a few small alterations. The black lines give an indication of what’s in store for it.
