Mockup in place

So I removed the cross member (to be cleaned up this weekend) and lowered the backup engine into place.

These shots show the situation. I think it is pretty good but the fan does slightly impact the cross member.

The only thing that hits the firewall is the distributor which if I recess a small part of the firewall will give me another 1-2 inches.

The oil canister is an issue (3rd picture) but I purchased this (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...284483056&rd=1) last night so I think I am OK there as I can remote the oil filter.

Anything else look odd/bad? For example, is the engine low enough?

Based upon what you see am I way off in my assessment?

I am starting to think others might tread a similar path in the future so I am starting a project journal in the event it is useful. I will add some of the things I have tackled previously like painting the firewall which was a pain!

Thanks,
Paul
