Then you only have to optimise the horizontal phasing of the engine to diff flange.

    Cheers All, I going to take the front end off this week at set it on blocks at the ride height I'm looking for. I'll go with the remote filter as this will give plenty clearance at the steering side. I've also started another thread for steering set-up :-)

    I just need to keep in mind this is a slow process.....I get frustrated when things don't go fast :-)

    don't forget to allow for weight of engine on chassis it will go lower when off jacks etc,made that mistake sump was quite low then had to lift up.

    If you look at pic #2 you will see that the oil filter is close to the steering shaft. The only way I can clear this and get the engine lower is pus the engine back?? I'll be driving with the engine and gearbox in the car :-) With the engine in this position, the sump is about 280mm from the ground..... it looks quite high??
