Not directly progress on the build, but both the 3D printer and the new springs for the front suspension arrived today.

I test printed a Benchy, which was quite a good result, need to sort out some parts for one of the model boats next. It's a big printer, 400mm x 400mm x 450mm volume, so I'll be able to print the difficult body parts for my karts. Don't ask me to print anything YET, too much work on to do anything much before the middle of December.

Looking at 3d print files I found this: https://screenshots.firefox.com/ybwQKHvW5gPId0kp/www.ebay.co.uk. Started me thinking about using it on the Morgan, so I checked my photos and decided that it was a possibility. What I also noticed is that the Morgan steering tie rod is in front of the radiator, so I think a complete rework of the steering setup is due. That'll solve all the problems of the pedals fouling the steering, and give me more legroom.

Might yet go with the V twin, I really do like the look, and the main reason for going for the F series was the difficulty of making the engine. It'll be a while before I'm in a position to print one, as it'll take so long the printer will have to be in the studio before I can try it.

Right, some progress, not a lot, but as they say, every little helps. New steering tie rods done, made from 12mm 3mm wall aluminium tube, tapped M8 for the track rod ends. As I'm reworking it I decided to go for one rod from the pitman, and a link rod between the two steering arms, I can always change it if I want to.
