Hurry up and get your kit together. I have a friend wanting me to do some more work on his valk and I've been putting it off. He also said I could buy a digisync and he'd pay for half and let me keep it. Can you tell he's a salesman?

I've already changed the timing belts and some stuff to his rear wheel and drive shaft.

  GL1500 boxer style 6 cyl.  Teardown 70% complete and kits documented.  Primo rebuild of the test rack this weekend and we'lll add kits, rebuilds to our website.
  95% an easy rack. Got some quirks of course. I got excited when it arrived. I like working on something different than the usual v4 fodder. The learning curve eats time though which is why mc shops do cheesy rebuilds. You can't put 10 or 20 hrs into a rack and stay in business.

How to shadow a toolbox without tracing or cutting part 2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_csElQXiFg

  Ex military guy? I spent a lot of hrs, days shadowing tool boxes in the USAF. Even did my roll around box at home which was grest for knowing what tools I lost. I finally settled on my new system. Pegboard hangers over the bench, same type tools in each drawer of the roll around, a catch all pile on the shop table between jobs and blame the kids, wife when I can't find a tool.
  Over the years I have received a few racks packed in expanding foam from guys who had a machine at their workplace.  Cans of that stuff are pricey, gotta do it in halves and cure time, i use USPS free boxes ant it is a vertical pack. I have good luck with plastic foam peanuts. People hate them but they do the job. Bigger boxes would def help. Raises costs for the box and packing. What will the market bear?
  I have unboxed racks in too small boxes with 3 sheets of wadded up newspaper for packing arrive with not a scratch. Go figure.

You can use me as a test shipper. Box up a nice, purdy set of 70As and when it gets here I'll take some pictures and send them back to you. There is a slight chance they could come back a little dirty and smelling of gas.  :???:

Wrap the carb in plastic, put carb in box, fill box with spray foam insulation.  Cut off excess with wire saw.  Tape and ship.

Interesting idea.  I remember someone telling me that the spray foam eats celophane wrap though. Probably worth it to do a couple tests and if nothing else then maybe put it in a smaller box w/in the box and foam between them?

Your idea has merit. The plenum on the 1G is fragile. The impact on the board would transfer to the plenum. Dunno? Your idea has merit. I'll think on it. Thanks.
One of those industrial foam injection machines would be great but probably way expensive and cleaning and materials and...

Could you bolt a piece of wood to the top of the plenum and maybe cut up a support piece for the bottom of the carbs?

Both pieces of wood the same size as the box.  That way, you would have less chance of a carb being damaged by those monkeys?

May not cost you too much to fab up.
