The engine was ~4" ahead of where they suggested and with that placement, had a 9" long drive shaft centerline to centerline of the u-joint bearing cups. This could have caused some problems with u-joint wear, but it was anticipated, and for <$25/year changed them out, JIC (they were never bad)
Dave where did you get the top that is on the bucket in the pic? It is very much along the lines of what I want for my T that I am going to build.
