they aint pretty or efficient, but for $50
they'll be fine. Need to do some pipe fitting down below though.
Whacked the flanges off and every thing missed the steering gear.
That does it for the mock up block.
Pull trany and steering column, get the box rebuilt.
And start on the engine assembly.

trimmed trany adapter plate

looks like the steering will miss, but
both flanges come right at fire wall
will cut flanges off and extend a couple inches.

WTF, this POS was strung across the
top of the trany, under the exhaust and up around the frame rail.
And the reason the trany wouldn't jack up.
It's the brake line from the master cyl. to the passenger side.
It had to come from a junk yard.
I'm no master mechanic- but come on now.
Looks like the trany needs to raise an inch, no prob.
But I will reweld it, looks like something I'd scrap off my shoe.

Never had this happen before,
the spray nozzle on the primer can stuck open.
I finished welding and grinding on my motor mounts,
thought I'd get some paint on them.
I got plenty paint on those, even sprayed about half my fuel oil tank.
Of course it's all over my hands.
Happy New Year
