I can only go so low with the motor, due to the oil pan/MII crossmember clearance, and I want the motor forward enough to clear the firewall. I also need to be sure of the clearance between the rack and pinion/harmonic balancer, so I was lucky enough to be able to borrow the rack back again for a few days. Hopefully I'll be solving these issues over the next few days without too much rework of anything! I guess a two piece driveshaft would be one way of resolving it.
