Fabbing a heater box that is NLA

My Ariens 10M55 came without a heater box...so I decided to make a copy of the one from my 10M45. Material is 22 guage steel sheet metal. Cut with snips and bent with wide-mouth pliers. Have some slots yet to cut but shape is accurate. MH

Garage
It's the box that covers the carburetor and keep ice and snow from jamming up the linkages and also funnels warm air off the engine and or muffler to help keep the carb from icing up.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Great job, especially considering what you were using for a bending brake!

Good job

Looks good to me. I've welded up a couple of them where someone had cut part of them out in the past and in other cases modded one from a junk engine to fit another engine. I've not tried creating one from scratch (yet) but who knows, maybe one day I'll have to give that a go.
Well done.

very nice, it should look very presentable after a paint job
