I like how you have mounted radiator, fuel tank & trans cooler to plates and cross members so you can unbolt and remove them for engine removal.

Trans cooler looks real nice layed in the front.

chassis is done built the new trans mount made it a slider so i can get the engine and trans mounted easier. also welded 1/4 nuts on the rt inner frame rail so i can make some mounts for the fuel lines and trans lines. started bending 3/8 line for the fuel and trans. easier said than done but will get it accomplished. they will look nice as long as i can get them to look match fairly well

Good idea on the slider Al, should make install a little easyer. Make sure you have some pictures of the line to frame clamp setup when you get them in.

Keep up the good work. Hope you are getting around a little better.

After taking the assy in and out a couple times i figured out the slider should work good. Am going to pick up some 1/2 flat aluminum tomorrow and make up some clamps for the lines. have a small tubing bender handle and can get a good radius but cant make it real tight without kinking .
Am getting better every day really making strides in the last week except still have 3 unhealed ribs sliding around.Starting to get some strength back but cant put it to use because of the ribs
Think I am selling my last big bike may put it on line this weekend two move before the snow flies

made some little alum brackets for the steel lines the trans cooler lines turned out good , dont look at the fuel line I will be making another one of those as it was ruined before i got the new bender.
Took the trans pan off and put a new filter and the deep alum pan on. pan was pretty clean with only a little stuff in the filter. got it painted up and ready to go back on the engine once i get the converter on . Will take a chance on it as is. I have seen a lot worse

Line brackets look real neat & clean, that should make local tech happy.

If that is a true "Mike's Transmission PG" should be a nice unit. Their shop is an hour from were I live. I have been running Mike's PG for 35+ years and have never had a failure. Real nice people to work with.

Oh I hate old stuff sometimes. Was putting the flex plate ont he engine tonight locktight on everyhting snugged the down with the impact the took the torque wrench to them was torquing to 70 lbs and one just kept turning , Crap stripped it , looked at the bolts they dont go in quite all the way through the crank found one in my bolt pile a 1/4 inch longer had about 1/8 of good thread to catch lubed it up with locktite and tried to get some torque on it got about 30 lbs but dare to go no more.
its got 6 bolts on the crank but think may have to get that one tapped damm. sometimes i think fine thread bolts seem to stip easier than the coarse

well helicoil and a bunch of red locktite to the rescue worked great , got the engine in this morning for the last time trans lines hooked up started work on the homemade midplate braces very simple they will work fine . got my 1 wire alternator and found that it and the alt mount are not friends about a 1/4 out. may just cut the alt back as opposed to building a new bracket as the existing is so nice and clean. my nice brass wingnuts for the sidepanels showed up will look pretty good
All my friends on the wall that watch and supervise my work. they dont talk much which is good.

more progress intake and exhaust on plus fuel lines all mounted got from fuel tank to near carb with only 2 inches of fuel line. Need to get the carb on now as i may need a different fuel log for it as the low profile one i have isnt going to cut it.

It's looking really good, nice job. I like the tower you built for the radiator.
I really like the improvements you've made and I'm sure the car will be easier to run, and quicker.

Ya Al, have not heard anything from you about the car for a week or so, any new stuff? Are you able to work in your shop during winter? I had a wood burning stove in my shop in WA, just took the chill off so I could work during the day. Give us a heads up. Tom

Al, good to hear from you. Winter is already moving in for you guys I am sure. Talked to my four grandkids in MI that are playing football and all they kept saying was how cold & windy it was already. I know you have to get everything ready as it is to late after it hits.

I had a good size shop when I lived in WA state (2000-2008) and the winters only get down to 28-30, that's like spring for you I am sure. My wood stove could get the inside up to mid 40's so with a jacket & some gloves you were able to do a little work during the day and get out of the house.

We are enjoying your build & pictures.

AL, looks real nice, I really like that motor set out a few inches so you can get to bolts a lot easier. Makes for a little more leg room also. I used the same 6 fuse unit and it worked out well. Is winter got a hold on you guys yet?
