Getting Closer

Coupled the engine and torque tube to the transmission today. It's a little difficult to do by yourself, but it's done. Took awhile though. :roll: I would recomend having help. :wink: :wink:

It's hard for me to remember what it looked like before. :D :D

Here's a couple of pictures:

What kind of finish did you put on the manifold?

I wouldn't trust that blocking system. Looks like a accident waiting to happen. :cry:

Good question. Is that a high temp paint? What did you put on the carb to keep it shiny? Same thing with the hydraulic block?

Looking real good though.

Me too, I am kind of leary of your tripod system. Best get that front end under real quick!

Keep posting pics, looks real sharp.

Sometimes I'm not too bright :idea: but the jack and the 2x4 were just temporary. I have 2-2" angles bolted to the front of the torque tube, one on each side. Nice to see you looking out for me. :D :D

The paint on the manifold is high temp aluminum. Hope it holds up. It's really a little too bright for my taste.

Hey Donny, I'm enjoying your pics. Keep them coming. Your project looks spectacular. I've gotten a good laugh at the responses to your shoring also. Did you paint right there? The floor looks a little red. Bill

You sure know how to hurt a fella don't you! :D All kidding aside, it looks great.

It looks like the 2X4 on top of that wine bottle should long as you're balanced correctly :lol:

Hey that's going to be a show piece. I like the stainless hardware.

Enjoying seeing your pictures.
