    The larger opening at the bottom is for the 9" filter to fit in. The base plate will over up that opening and have a snout that drops down to the 4-1/8

    More work on the Caddy air cleaner, time to fabricate the pocket for the coil. Our radius brake that is bolted to the front of the shear is used to bend some 18ga into a horseshoe. One side is trimmed short and the other is left long to bend and form the bottom in the magnetic brake.
























    And end plate is cut out to seal off the void from the rest of the air cleaner innards. This gets tacked in place and then fusion welded using the TIG.



















    A holesaw is used to get the hole started and offset Wiss snips to trim out the hole in both the housing and the mounting flange. TIG tacked and fusion welding on the flange, and it then gets trimmed to fit inside the air cleaner housing.






















































    Yup, that's what I was looking for...

    Now for our bottom plate for the air cleaner.. In order to keep the filter located properly (keep it from moving around) we decided to add a bead to the bottom of the plate.
























    Then the plate is trimmed to a circle, and the thumbnail dies in the Lennox used to start the shrinking process around the edge.

    We then jumped on the Erco kick shrinker to flatten the uneven surface..

    And repeat. Repeatedly. We have two or three more rounds to go and we can start tipping and stretching.

    I see more effort and engineering is the breather than some whole builds.
