Incredible craftsmanship and fabrication. This not that far from building the actual car in 1:1 just takes up less garage space.

I am diggin' this project. I do have a question. Is it just me, or is the timing cover placed way up too high in this photo? It looks like the position would put the camshaft/fuel pump right into the intake manifold.

Yes,.......it`s just the way I mocked-ed it up by accident.......it will be moved into the correct position .......Mark Johnson resin engines have pins to connect engine parts together .......and I put the timing cover in the wrong hole.......thanks
