We have an annual vehicle inspection. You have touched on some thoughts I won't discuss here...Don't want you to think I am flying under the radar. This thread was never intended to be a build thread, merely an abstract discussion on the merits of the original stuck flathead 6/Fluid drive transmission and it has got out of hand already. There were images posted earlier that showed the essence of what was involved in placing the Jaguar front end. I am now happy this is the way it has evolved...it will be a more usable vehicle because of it.
