The results of you working unsupervised are pretty awesome to watch, Charlie.

Hope you're doing well!

Thanks Colin, this is my therapy, it gives me direction and a purpose - also keeps me up at night problem solving the next days fabrication challenges..

Lot's of great idea's here, ZZ.
I'm with Mac on stealing the recessed steering U joint.
I'm 100 percent with you on the therapy part. Just spent 3 hours in the shop and felt the best I have in month's. Of course tomorrow may be another thing entirely. I'll let my PT deal with that.

Steering is complete - it's squeaker but a miss is as good as a mile I figure No header mods needed - pure luck in that situation...



Ever have 'made to fit' parts that don't fit??The headers are made for this engine/trans combo but the clutch throwout arm hit the collector flange and on the pass side the collector hit the bellhousing. I performed a collectorectomy (new word!!) and added 3" to each, angling them out of the way at the same time.

Lots of angle on that U joint, does it not bind?

Nope, still some gap, not maxed out. I think the angle of the pic makes it look more severe, it works smoothly.
