I have to agree with Seth those cylinders are impressive Marty. Tom is quite the engineer and has sure made some super cool parts for his car. I would definitely be interested in a set of those and would like to know more about them. Thanks for posting Marty.

Hi Regan-

The iron liners were custom made to Tom's specs by a company called Powerbore in Ohio. Powerbore has their own foundry so the quality is controlled in house. The outer aluminum sleeve is a stock aluminum thick wall tubing size, which he purchased from Speedy Metals. I *think* he used the 5" OD 3.5" ID tubing. The finished cylinders are D Production legal at .040 over.

All done on a manual lathe, no CNC smiling smiley

How about a light weight dry sump oil pan? Carved out of a chunk of 6061 aluminum.

That cylinder reminds me of the old Salih's. The finished product looks good.
