OK we got the Lakewood and the Greek coupler from Don and Sid.

Was the little red twin engine tank still in the scatter shield?

Hey, it was for inspiration.

If two V-8 engines can fit into a tank that small, one V-6 should be a piece of cake.   evil

IMHO there's enough meat but I would get it heat treated before shoving it up the Greek, it's probably pretty soft right now.
What's the rear housing & what's your trans so I can Google it to see? I originally thought you had a Muncie.

Yeah, I don't have the time to hunt it down either, there's a lot of gum flapping to dig through back there.

Just read a e-mail from Adelaide where Gretchen is staying.  It is pretty rough there with a category 2 cyclone.  Hopefully all of you and the belly tank are safe.

The less good news is that there's a little more slop in in the output shaft fit up than we're comfortable with, our box has the same 27 spline shaft as the 10 bolt pinion, the Greek is Turbo 400 size...they weren't meant to be lovers......



Did you ever notice that mating up this tuff is akin to putting on a puppet show with marionettes actuated by rubber bands?
