First trial fit. Trying to get engine to sit back and low as poss. Alloy radiator will need to mount lower

Also steering rack and harmonic balancer clash.Trimmed the large pully to get front of engine lower.
Fire wall - tappet cover clearance. Heater hoses fuel lines etc to be sorted
LHS engine mount. Main plate tacked in. Front brace to be welded in once thats all done
RHS engine mount, steering shaft has to be clear.
Gear box rear mount. Needs more clearance at the back. Gear box support was custom made.
Clutch lever and chassie need some work.
Trimed off the end of clutch arm, and knotching the chassie for arm and slave cylinder clearance.
