It's been a while since I updated this thread, so here comes a photo dump..... I was ready to start engine and trans mounts, so I got the two married together and hoisted into the frame. It was a balancing act between radiator clearance and torsion bar crossmember clearance. When I bolted on the side aprons, I discovered a problem I did not anticipate - the exhaust manifolds were going to protrude into the hood sides. I knew my torsion bar crossmember was going to make the engine sit higher, but I didn't realize that I needed to keep the engine lower, positioning the exhaust manifolds in the blisters of the side aprons. I pulled the oil pan to see if I could notch the front, but found my pan to already be shallow in that area. With no other alternative available, I got the cutoff wheel out and removed the torsion bar crossmember. With that out of the way, the engine came down, fitting where it needed to be. The torsion bars are still on, but I'm going to have to go to "version 2" of the system. While I contemplate that, I decided to push on with engine and trans mounts.
