Hey, thanks so much again guys, your very welcome comments help immensely..I often need a good shove on some of these.
Cliffo, cheers mate. Yeah, the back wasn't as bad as it appeared. Went to a Doc just to check yesterday (besides work requesting it ), he checked me over, made me (try) to bend over,
which I managed without a hitch, even got my hands flat on the floor while standing.....made him blink I think.
Cliffo, I haven't snagged a shot with the motor in place yet, but it looks to sit ok to my eye, if anything, it may be a tad forward??? Hard to find a good photo looking directly down on an engine bay.
Just seems to be a pretty decent gap between motor and firewall to me?
Haven't made much of a dent in things, though bench time hasn't really eased.....just tedious work....
Got a Z-bar happening......Hard to see in some of these pics, sorry.
The start, drilled some 1/16 rod (? may be a tad smaller...) to accept a mounting wire.
Both legs/levers added, quick coat of paint.....
And probably NOT the most accurate of mounting positions....but it lines up and meets the trans ok.
Underside shot shows the position more clearly. As I said, not the most accurate...
Mounting position on the trans, or bellhousing.
Clutch fork made from solder, flattened on one end and drilled out.
And speedo cable locator, small diameter stainless tube, modified RBMotion nut added. It will of course be cut a lot shorter than that.
And mt BRAND NEW FLAT hood from Mike. Thanks again mate.
Rightio, may not get much done today, just about to head into big Bro's place for a Sunday BBQ. Australia Day down here today. Gotta wave the flag.
Seeya all again soon guys, and thanks again for stopping by
