Motor mounts 3.0
Pen fits snug under the pan. Got lucky on this one. Took preliminary measurements and everything ended up clearing just fine.
Notched the steering rack the same as M2cupcar for extra AN fitting clearance. Planning on routing the scavenge lines between the upper and lower control arms and then over the sub frame and down to the sump.
functional birdshit welds. T-sat housing now pointing the correct direction instead of straight down.
New alternator bracket with more room for the oil pressure inlet AN fitting.
Waiting on the pressure plate and flywheel to get back from the machine shop and a new set of HLA's and i'll be able to get this thing bolted back together.
I ended up taking another almost 2mm out of the combustion chamber so the dome of the pistons would clear the head.
Piston to head clearance should be about .045" in the quench and piston to valve clearance at TDC at full lift should come in at .039"
Hoping to turn the key this time next weekend.
Crossing fingers for success.
