    Did the crate engine come with the fly wheel? I Also see you got the boyd tank, are you going with the in tank pump? Looks good so far I will be keeping a close eye on your build as our power trains are very similar.

    BigB, yes engine cam with the stock flywheel, but i went with lightened billet flywheel - superior clutch, kevlar both sides - tilton 6000 clutch release - quick time bell and t56 trans from MDL.
    Checking bell to trans had to cut some off top two bolts. ARP bolts.

    Pilot bearing, one comes with engine, one with clutch. the ford one is thicker and looks better, but checking to make sure there is room.pics for hot rod net0014.JPG

    The bigger bearing worked good, came with engine but without checking you never know. Tilton throw- out bearing used up some time to set right, better to check more than once. Will go fast next time. Had to use dermalpics for hot rod net0015.JPGpics for hot rod net0017.JPGpics for hot rod net0018.JPGpics for hot rod net0019.JPG to make round hole out of flat sided slot.

    Nice job on the clutch stop. Are you going fat on the master cylinder to get shorter pedal travel or just limiting travel to avoid blowing out the bearing?

    To avoid blowing out tillion 6000 bearing. It is all setup, per directions put trany in gear and push pedal in till tran turns then 1/4 inch more. Put stop at that, i think that will be about as in pics.

    What about clocking the steering motor down a little? Looks like you wouldn't have to change it much.

    OK i had some problems with oil pan. It is the ford road racing pan and is made with hard metal. Did not like first job so cut it all out and did over, got to hot and warped the pan ! Dam i know better. Had to cut half of the flange from pan and spot weld to flat work bench , then heat and needle pen and weld small part around and do over till weled. Then check with die and fix leaks. O'well needed the practice any way? All good and on motor.pics for hot rod net0090.JPGpics for hot rod net0086.JPGpics for hot rod net0088.JPG

    If it isn't a challenge then it's no fun, right?
