Oil cooler

I've allways loved working with copper lines. After finishing the the Express fuel lines, there was still some copper left. Why not make some fun out of it? Different coolers was availiable in the fifthies. TDE and Oettinger both made their type. This is designed and made by Sechs volt :-)

These guys are dreaming of cruising on Paradis road again

It is still winter, but the sun are melting the white stuff again. The sun runs on 6 volt these days...

Hessich countdown!

Wednesday was the time for a 6V gathering. The entire 6V crew finally found time to meet!
Knechten, finally done building house for his family, showed everybody that he hasn't forgot how to take it in, and how to take it out.....dismantling a '57 firepump, removing the 1750 cc "Kvikk service" engine from the switter, in with the '57 engine - and finally - a quick start...all in one evening!
And for Oval57s split, things are starting to get somewhere....the captain will soon start to march once again =)

36hp engine for the express kit - Hessich HERE WE COME!

This bolt-on tuned 36hp engine arrived yesterday. Its an industrial engine only used ten hours since 1958. A very skilled motorguy here in Norway just did a valve- and fly cut job on it. He also shortened the pushrods, milled the combustion chambers and out-/innlets. I will be using this engine with dual carburetors (Express).

Most important first aid kit for your car...?

When searching through the boxes of parts for the Ghia, this little thing came up. It is a "nød-frontrute" -emergency windshield, made in Trondheim. The text reads: "If You have Your windshield shattered, the emergency windshield can save You from a lot of trouble. Always keep this box in Your car"
Turns out, it is just a piece of transparent plastic and some tape......!
But who knows, maybe it saved somebody's day, shattering the windshield after racing down some dusty contry roads.....

NOS 6 Volt bluecoil

Oval57 swapped some parts last night. What about NOS 6 Volt bulbs, bluecoil and a great temp gauge? He also got some NOS "wrong volt" parts with extremely danger, called 12 Volt. You can see some of it on the picture.

Automessen 2009

Oval57 went for the Automesse 2009 at the norwegian trade fairs. I think it was quite good for me. I got information about wich bolt I must use for my spacers, I got tips and tricks for rubbing up my split and more. "Every" firm dealing with parts and so on was present at the trade fair. I had a really good time. I also got some pictures for you guys.

When will Knechten be back in the garage?

Knechten left the Sechs volt garage before the summer and we have not seen much of him since then. The reason is that he is making a new home for his family. I found this box with Norwegian "lapskaus" that is still edible - waiting for him when he returns to the garage. Knechten come home!
