    mAYBE THIS IS BETTER
    In 2 of these you can see the fixture I wrote about made out of some channel iron with a center section reversed so a block can lay on top of it locating the crank centerline at the top of frame rails

    also ,maybe, you can make out in the first pic toward the rear end that I had made a tube that was the length midliength of shock travel length(ride ht) for the rear end so chassis sat at ride ht as I worked on/mocked stuff up

    Jerry,
    I think the one that's most applicable is the neat jig you made to set the bare block on, shown in your last group but it's pretty grainy. The jig, made of three pieces of angle, is shown in place across the frame in front of the pipe clamp. The block, minus the crank, would sit on the center section at top-of-frame. Neat!

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    Thanks Roger

    And you can see plainly the 2 tubing pieces I used on the rear suspension to similate ride height at mid point of the coil overs I used. also visable is the motor mounts are installed and hanging just behind where my block fixture is laying in the photo.

    Hey thanks for the inputs guys, all very helpful. I hope to have an engine with a crank and harmonic balancer soon so I can check all clearances from the front cross member and from the radiator back and get this moving along again.

    Thanks again !!

    My dog Pretzel likes to help too, but his measuring skills are off, heck that's why I had to move my engine forward a inch, last year!

    I would suggest that you make a fixture like my channel iron piece and use a mockup block without a crank in it so as you position the engine it keeps the crank c/l at top frame level and level side to side--------its easy to measure and slide sideways for centering the crank or for any amount of offset--
    Put the engine pretty much as far reaware as you can depending on distributor clearance and bell housing to firewall----------------that will give you the most room for accessories on front altho there may be some allowances you'll have to make depending on where you mount alternator and a/c.

    3rd attempt at posting tonight, can't seem to hit the right button !
    Jerry: I made a fixture like yours but it seems to hold the engine high and would cause me to have a big tranny tunnel through my cab. Is there any thing wrong with having the center line of the crank lower than the top of the frame rail ? pictures shows 2 inches of clearance.

    Sorry about that Navy---just been looking at the frame specs at Wescottsauto.com and see that the 1940 stuff has quite a rise to the front frame rails that ain't there on te earlyer ones----it will need some adjustment for that differance -----------------

    I also have a 9 inch ford rear end with a 2 3/4 tube thru the pinion support that then fits in the mains of a BBC for perfect set up og drive shaFT ANGLES----but it works best for race cars with a centerline mounted pinion as most of the street cars have some offset-------------

    Off subject---is that Selma alabama?????????????????????? was down there in 60s for the march when I was in 7th Cav---------
