Ed did get it right. Tonight I'll do the handle and the valve for the inside. Still trying to figure out how to develop a build pattern.

Jerome, Is it sheet metal or a casting? Siemens NX, SolidWorks or Catia could flatten your sheet metal part to make a pattern easily.

Working in Inventor, still working on getting a handle on "sheet metal". This rendering is not done in sheet metal but reg. Inventor. The goal is to get to the point where I can get the patterns modeled up to stamp this out of a piece of sheet metal. The handle will be easy and I will work on that tonight, but the "tubing" shape that is made from bending a flat piece together is taking more time than I thought. I may have to do it the old fashioned way and draw it out 2D then bring it into sheet metal and "bend" it. I have 3 weeks till finals are over and this was I hoped a quick thing that would take my mind off class work but is taking longer than I thought. If I can't "get" it tonight I post the pics of what I have and will have to work on it after finals. J

Jerome,
Back when I was taking computer graphics--the old dark ages on dumb terminals tied to a mainframe and utilizing SlumberJ software (egads, I remember all this??) I drew up scale plans to build a Stanley 1907 "Gentleman's Speedy Roadster" "Will do 60mph on a good road." Since I was planning on building this for my own project, I utilized Model T axles and wheels (OK, for the front axle I took just the ends and inserted them into a piece of heavy-wall tubing) this changed the geometry a bit from the Stanley axle ad the tube on theirs is at the center of the spindles--and the computer showed me that I had to add spacers to keep the car level! Anyway, put way too much time into it, but it got me an A and my file was used to show others what could be done. This was so far back, that I remember coming out of the lab one day (I pulled a few "all-nighters" back then) and someone said, "The Bay Bridge Collapsed! I didn't believe them at first, but yep, big earthquake that I didn't feel in the basement computer lab. That's how long ago it was!!
So, don't feel like you're the only student who used his old-car hobby in Class assignments!
PS, no I never built it & now I doubt I will, but it was fun taking photos of original cars and known dimensions to come up with the plans.

In the down position, the valve is open.
