rear is in. pre installation guestimated d/shaft at 24''. wrong! had to order a 22''. better now. waiting for trans man for trans/converter. had to order more stock for my miscalculations and more nuts and bolts because some dummy forgets things. mcmaster-carr has been my friend for tooling. just couldn't get a 15/32 drill to go around corners.
all the little things keep adding up $$$.
we will get this thing done sooner or later. lol

finished both sides of the engine coupler. bad memory caused wrong bolt size order. now i got spare metric bolts with no home.  :-[
got main engine in and then set in a dummy one for coupler trial. need to cut coupler lengths down. too far out. plus i only planned to cut one crossbar due to oil pan. now it looks like have to redo the x bars for oil pan.
xxxx unseen items keep popping up.  ::)
