Thanks for posting those pics. Very creative and I admire your fabrication on this project!
I would like to pick your brain on a few things if you don't mind...
-What prompted you to use the 292? I think straight sixes are neat and wondering how you came to that decision.
-Can you explain how you are using the auto trans in front of the 5 speed? I am guessing that is the primary and the 5 speed starts the initial gear reduction?
-How far to the swamp? Backyard or do you have to travel? How fast does it go? Or, do you mostly crawl?
I hope I am not sounding too ignorant here. I am very curious about this engineering work of art!
