Go to Photo Galleries on this site and then other British cars. There are several there.

Hi John, how goes your project ? No adapter plated needed for 215/RV8 to GM, Saginaw, Muncie or BW. manual trans, by using 215" Buick/Olds, oem. bell housing. 215 about 40-50 lbs heavier than 907. Fiberglass hood is much lighter.
Good luck, Art.
