Thinking about casting a Alky fuel bowl for a Keihin PWK carburetor.

Just batting around an idea but I know a guy who could use one....  I'm thinking of making a pattern and core box for a large volume PWK carburetor float bowl, PWK 33-35 and probably PWK36+ more than likely.
 
I'll update with pics as I make progress.
 
Just for clarity, here's my handmade "sheet metal" bowl:

I think I know the same nate who could use one! He needs to go look at the clearance and strike some measurements too!

if the bowl was not any deeper than a PJ/PWK bowl it will fit fine.

How about isues with the case?  How wide and long can it be?  I can copy the depth from a stock PJ/PWK bowl if that will work.

I would say as long as it's not much wider than the carb body itself then it would fit for sure. It may need rounded edges at the bottom to clear the case

Snap a pic looking in from the back so I have an idea of how "rounded" we're talking.  I'm going to start on the pattern this week and hopefully have the beta next in order to make the race.
