Na, the fitting in bit we have decided will be achieved better in Preston, that out of town at my joint...and no, I just bought a big dust-extractor so that timber working/steel working and auto-body work can happily coexist

Moving on
the tank is at my place to work out how we are going to setup the new engine.
however the first thing I have to do is setup a new work stand with wheels
I have to make a ring for the gearbox/scattershield so I can re drill the scattershield for the gearbox
I have an oil tank for the dry sump but at 5 liters it may be a bit small
and I think we need a twin plate clutch

Maybe I can get Jon Amo to smuggle one into "the big island" when he goes back in January.

I would have thought that shield had all bases covered since it has both Ford and Chevy patterns.

Dang!

Yep. I would've thought so too. However the box we are using is out of a Holden.
A short powerglide would be so much simpler.

A powerglide might be a little short on gears for an engine that you'll likely need to keep on the boil, that coupler I sent you will fit a 400.

Jumping off topic here -

I will be with our small wine group to OZ in 04/18. Our cruise chic is an employee of Qantas, hoping for better than steerage. I have talked with the lovely Kim Kregs about her area. Looking forward to making contacts at Speed Week 2017 for this trip.

Dan, I didn't know you were coming over. You might find you already know a lot of us.
there's no White Goose Bar but there is a bar and canteen just off the lake.
and they don't take eftpos(no mobile coverage) And if anyone offers you a Tim Tam Slam....

Dan, what wine growing areas are you going to?... you may well end up near our place, we're close to Heathcote, big red country.

the Holden box on the scattershield is 18 3/4" and the tails shaft is another 4"
because reverse was in the extension housing, we just cut that off and used the spline it ran on for
the tails shaft
I have a 400 which I would be happy to use, however it's jut a bit big
I also have what appears to be a saginaw, but that's way long and reverse is in the box, not the extension housing
so that wont work easily
I'm thinking either a Bert speedway bow or a Super T10 might work
