Looks great. Always enjoy your projects!  Looks like quite a bit of time sitting right there.

What did you do to keep the flange that mates with the cylinder head from warping as you welded it?

I had it tacked to a piece of steel 4"X1-1/2"X36"

Finney.... give some info on the furnace. Heat exchanger with fan. Is it it wood/coal? And it looks like burns used oil too. Did you build the furnace?

Stove is 43" long, 22" wide and 41" tall. Corners are 16"sch. 40 quartered, sides, top, front, back and bottom 3/8" plate. Air to air heat exchanger 16" sch. 40, tubes are A106 sch. 80. Plugs in the top and bottom are for sticking a air wand in to clean out. Blower is from a old furnace. Grate is 3"X1/2" angle turned with the point up like a upside down V. Weight is around 1,100lbs.

Would be interesting to see dyno comparisons between the stock manifold and the 'header'. Looks fantastic BTW.

I will know in a couple of weeks.

Maybe they are shoehorning a 8.3 and a roadranger in the dodge .....

At the top of this post he said that it was going into a 1066.  Now we NEED pictures!!!

Ooooh boy.  Have a thought for that poor block.  Looks like someone is going to see if they can blow yet another Cummins 5.9 block apart.

Maybe Finney can fab a massive stud girdle system to hold the block together.
