thanks for the advice stroprock,
little bit more done today. the alternator was one of the parts that was never going to fit with the exhaust manifolds and extreme tight fit of the engine in the chassis so having to make a custom bracket to hold it in position. using the bolt locations on the left side of the engine came up with this.
it will need spacing of the engine
get the parts cut through the week, all so bit more on the intack pipe. this needs to be rubber mounted to the slam panel.
few bits on order, oil cooler, remote oil filter block and some 3" alloy tube so i can get the inter cooler all mounted. more soon
few more bits landed this week.
oil cooler, oil filter block, 3"" alloy bends for the intack and some silicon hose. theres still a few bits to come this week.
sorted the alternator bracket today just wants polishing before i weld it up.
also started to build a scoop to draw fresh air from the front grill opening to cool the oil cooler , made it from some 1.5mm sheet alloy.
this mounts under the head lamp on the drivers side
not getting as much time on it as i would like but hoping things will change in the next couple of weeks. more soon
keep on posting, then i can pinch more of your ideas
