    Ok I'm a dummy and was just wondering if anybody could tell me what the angle should the motor be mounted and what angle should the rear end be at. Im building a model T coupe and I'm putting a 292 y block motor with a banjo rear end and Im getting ready to set motor and fabricate motor mounts. Any help please!!!!!:)

    from so cal

    An ideal would be from zero to three degrees for the engine, and
    three degrees upward for the pinion angle. The idea being under
    load each would move for a total of six degree.

  3. I'm assuming an open driveshaft here, with u joints at both ends

    block the chassis up at the desired ride rake of the finished car, front to back.
    then level side to side.

    set your engine and trans in the chassis, put a level on the carb pad on the intake, level the pad side to side and front to back.

    measure the face of the trans output or yoke. this angle should be around 3 degrees down, but whatever it is, that's the up angle for your pinion.
