I forgot to mention, I cut the tube steel down so that it slid in between the frame rails so the engine doesn't sit at a wild rake like before. As it turns out, the motor is sitting dead level now. This is exactly what I was shooting for in regards to the engine sitting higher off the ground but the top of the carb scoops sitting at hood-line height. It peeks out from over the hood-sides just right. Oh.. The white marks on the crossmember was just a joke to a friend. Don't worry, I won't be cutting them the wrong way.
