Bolted up the bellhousing and trans to mock things up and check placement of motor and clearances........Check out this fit..

A little tilt and the tailshaft slid down under the firewall and we were on our way

Right about now were feeling pretty good because the bellhousing and trans are actually fitting in the trans tunnel!

The dreaded steering box..We have clearance..The oil filter is the only thing down low near the steering box but we were clear

Pass. side where we will fab exhaust and have the water return pipe ran..

Plenty of room at front.....

Cleared tie rod!

Just mocking some things for the heck of it

Picked up a new Rebel Wire 20 circuit kit so we will be rewireing the car next..

Overall we are very happy with the fit of the Quad 4..Everything just seemed to be right and the Rambler didnt throw us a curve with any clearance issues. I am excited to get this car finished and see how she runs out..should be a peppy little car. Finally feels like were getting somewhere.
