Scott's Atlas / Craftsman 101.07403 12x36" Lathe, modifications and projects. Stone Mountain, GA Unique Visitors:

Neighbor has one of those cheap SUNL 4-wheelers. These are Chinese junk. The carb bowl developed lots of cracks from poor casting. Made from Zamac, so near impossible to weld or braze. So, decided to make one.

Start by turning 2.5" 6061 blank to diameter and including a flange.

 Mounting ears formed by TIG welding then turned to match width of ears. Needed to be at least 2.75" so had to add more metal.

Beginning boring operation.

Bored to inner diameter.

 O-ring groove cut.

All finished.
