    Wow its saturday and nice & dry !!! Ideal opportunity to install the motor & transmission all the brackets were made and ready so what could go wrong ???

    Got all the surfaces to be welded nice and clean and sparked up the welder.










    Yep all fits a treat !!!








    Splashed a bit of Rustoleum on to keep it nice








    Stood back to see what it looked like and thought "wasn't you gonna put the motor mounts lower ? " Damn !!! in my rush to get them on I had welded the level with the top instead of level at the bottom
    To much work to move them now as those suckers are proper welded in !!! Instead I will alter the front mount, that's how it goes sometimes, not worth rushing
    Its not how you screw up but how you get out of it that counts










    Had to make slight modification to one centre section leg that goes forward, the new bell housing is pretty big and fouled on the leg, Out with the cutting disc and that was quickly solved I will fold up a piece to replace it that has a slight dogleg.








    Next job is to make a transmission mount, something like the front motor mount would be nice.

    You must have the most understanding neighbours who don't mind the sound of cut off discs and grinders first thing in the morning ? very nice though and can I ask please, what is the idea of the jockey wheel on the draw bar as I know why you have fitted the draw bar by can't think what the jockey wheel is all about ?
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    Whip I never start work outside till after 9am, the jockey wheel is to lift it as I take the front wheels off when I move it otherwise things would beak !!! You can't have a rigid drawbar and all 4 wheels on the ground.

    Oh, okay, so the draw bar is not for what I believed it was for. I did work for a guy that built race cars and he had a draw bar on the front of his shop truck to be used to be able to drag the cars out and around his workshop as each of his cars had a toe ball fitted at the front of the vehicle which allowed him to hook up a car and with me or somebody else steering move it about easily but with your front wheels removed it becomes like a trailer to be towed anywhere. I forgot too that it doesn't get light over there until 8.30 am during winter so the neighbours should be up and about.

    Not done much past few days as had some flu virus knocked me for 6 for a few days but improving now, worst thing is it left me with a horrible cough, not the ideal thing to do when tig welding

    Anyway tonight I got a bit done, first I finished the trans mount I had started on saturday, I didn't have a C4 rubber mount so adapted a TH350 mount.

    I also done the modification to the front engine mount but the paint wasn't dry enough to handle so pic tomorrow.












    Heres the actual mount

    Finished the mods to the motor mount.


    Before








    After








    I noticed the mount rubbers were spreading slightly under the weight of the Y block so I spun some cups up in the lathe in alumnium to support them. The mounts always used to come with cups but not anymore ?

    Very nice work! I like your save on the engine mount situation. Thanks for posting this build. It is nice to see how others build their own parts. I sometimes have issues on trying to build a certain bracket and not have it look hacked in mhy mind. That trans cross member is very cool. I'm with you as well on those front mounts. Mine didn't come with any cups and I need to get some too.

    Last couple of evenings have been spent making some stainless headers, the flanges I ordered from the laser cutter turned up real quick (thanks Paul) so I set to it.
    The Y block has square exhaust ports so first job was to make up some round tube with squares on the end to match the ports, I did a small video that explains the process here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DC0SWpfWEoo

    Heres a few pics but the video explains it better than words

    The primary tubes are 1.75" Stainless steel, Flanges are 5/16" stainless steel, I kept the design simple to save time.















    I got this far but run out of bends so come to a stop till tuesday.
