posted these before but here goes again.... Someone said "Can we put the motor in the front seat...I said let's try it..." I did this engine setback starting at 5pm Friday evening and finished at 8am Monday morning. (the local chrysler dealer let me use their shop over the weekend. The job included setting the motor back 26", fabbing the motor mounts, transmission mounts and front shock mounts, cleaning off the front frame rails and installing a tube front axle (with '40 Ford front spindles) with leaf springs, and hooking up the steering, etc, etc. The Hilborn Fuel Injection and Vertex Mag came a little later in the summer.
