You guys know the rub. Imagine a ridiculous amount of money and a reasonable amount of time and multiply them by a random number greater than two.

Yesterday we pressed on.
 
There is a primordial gearbox mount, the engine mounts are in.

I pulled out the morse cables that worked the old shift. They didn't do all the work, they weren't long enough. From the gear-stick were foot long rods, then morse going through the firewall and along the mid bar, then some more rod. The whole lot was made from a Holden Gemini shift that I bought at a junk sale for $15. These then acted on an extension axle from the shift tabs themselves, this helped by making the action 90 degrees, that said, I was the only person who could find the gears.....Sorry Rev. evil

So, as the shift for the new G Force is on the other side we figured mongrelizing a mongrel system was probably going further than a pair of guys used to pushing it a bit far would be prepared to go. I went looking for a suitable pair of morse cables...... I have ordered a pair of 12ft B&M shift cables that will go ALL THE WAY......

Hey Bill, you can do anything but don't step on my blue suede shoes....

I'm going to The Colonelseum today, points of order.

1./ Make as much noise as possible so Mrs Colonel has to get out of bed.
2./ plan and execute new gear shift.
3./ Make decision of canopy  fastening, redevelop or redesign.
4./ test fit water-tank.


Just watch me now.........

In other news I've heard some idle talk that Johnboy and Stainless are planning on coming to Gairdner.......Wayno?

We got a lot done today.
Gearshift is well under way.
The canopy shuts properly again.
Big decision made. The water tank is going to be replaced by a radiator and fan. It was too long and replacement or modification is more work than we have time for.

Hey  Doc
You should be able to get any length Morse cable made with any ends you need in Melbourne.
My mate in Tassie have a business , cable mate,   The business is still there but he bought most of his stock and parts from Melbourne.
They have everything for cables.
I will. Contact him for details.

See you at the lake.      Bones
