A good way to line up the engine with the rear is a piece of 1.5" dia. cold rolled bar and accurately machined "washers" that just slide on the bar and just fit the pinion bearing bores and front and rear main bores . If the bar rotates within the washers with the rear and block bolted in place you're perfect .

Got to driver the lakester Sunday after 16 years of building. Took it to a section of abandoned highway . It started drove(30MPH) shifted and most importantly stopped. The weather was cold and very windy with a coating of snow on the grass.

Congratulations!
Will it be F/BFL as it's lettered? What's the engine- one you've run before? What overall gearing will you start with?
The engine I'm building will put my lakester in F/BF. Hopefully we'll meet at a race someday!
