    Milestone reached no longer dismantelling

    Progress at last...

    After lots of good advice on my thread about engine/gearbox mounts and a very generous offer from someone nearby..

    I have prepared the mounts for welding to the chassis about 71cm further back than they were originally.

    I have the engine/box sat on baulks of timber and wheeled the chassis forward till the gearbox rubbers mated with the gearbox x-member , this left the chassis poking out of the garage door.

    So I then needed the whole shooting match back inside the garage , so I borrowed a leaf from the Egyptians and put the engine x member on rollers made of 12mm bolts :-



    The chassis rolled very easily into the garage dragging the engine with it , the engine then just needed packing up till the engine x member brackets could be bolted on in the right place :-



    and this is the gearbox x member :-



    So ready for welding , all holes will be plug welded and then edges welded where they touch

    Looks smart, well prepped. Only take 20 minutes to weld that lot
    I'm not the best welder in the world.... but I'm in the top 5!

    The magician has paid me a visit and performed his magic on and my chassis ?

    engine bracket outside chassis



    engine bracket inside chassis



    gearbox bracket



    sadly both the gearbox bracket pictures are slightly out of focus , just to excited looking at them to take a good picture ...

    Want to dive in and get them wired brushed and painted , however laid low with chest infection at moment ....

    Still there is always tomorrow ...

    Next on the list is new gearbox rubbers and chopping the propshaft.

    Paul

    Paul, what is the measurement from front axle centre the front of the chassis. Looking at the chassis and it would be ideal if the leading edge of the chassis not protrude through mu grill.
    If you have time it would be a great help.
    Regards
