I have a chevy small block in my '34. Front suspension is a Fat Man M II.

I decided to move the engine up a bit compared to what the engine mount welding sheet suggested. Moved it enough to make the front crossmemeber the lowest point.
I personally think that's more important than if I have to use 2-3 or more universal joints on the steering linkage.

When I moved the engine up, the transmission cover for the 6 speed trans had to be made rather huge. So now it will be very limited space for all those 3 pedals...

But then again, limited space is what hot rod building is all about I guess.
