Hi, I'm Doug, I work with twenty great guys in St. Louis at Doug Jenkins Custom Hot Rods and we're going to do some work for you today on Expert Village. Now Mark needs to modify the windage plates so that it will fit around the new oil pump and pickup. The old motors may or may not have had a windage plate in it or a windage tray of any kind but it seems best to with a modern engine to use the one they have. So we have a band saw in the shop, it makes these kind of things easy but if you don't have a band saw you can use a nibblers or just regular old sheet metal sheers. And now he's cleaning up the burs on the belt sander leftover from the band saw. Now he's got it all cleaned up and making sure there is absolutely no metal shavings going into this brand new engine. Now he's checking it for fit and it looks like it's pretty good.
