    I'm refitting the motor, it was pinned against ridge of metal where floor pan plan and firewall are spot-welded together, had to shave about 3/8 of an inch off front mounts, then the other headaches come into play, steering-headers-drag link goes thru oil pan and it's all been fitted - reassembled and clearances checked.

    You’ve managed to fit 15” tires under mini tubs? Awesome. Who’s oil pan you using? Sorry I’m still in planning mode here with mine. I just about have it stripped. Then it’s off to sandblaster on rotisserie. Then the project starts for real. I would like to get as large of a tire in back as possible, pro street look.

      That sounds just like my axle. Dana 60, 4.10’s, powerloc, and a bit narrower than A body spec.

            The slicks are 30/9/15 going with 29/15 which = 15 inch section width and 13 in of rubber on the road, as you can see the slicks section width = 13 inches with 9 inches of road contact. Mike

              Yeah I've heard LOTS about Tim and his reputation with the hemis. Bewdley is literally 40 minutes from me. Dwight Voortsville is another hemi cuda guy close to Tim, Bewdley area as well. Wish I could pony up the $$. I'll enjoy it from the bleachers for now lol.
              Subscribed and congrats on progress.
              Monstrous builds in this thread, love it.

              I believe Dwight is the trans guy friend of Tim's I've been talking to. He's a transmission builder, if its the same guy. Seems pretty straight up.

              Oil pan was fabed, the red marking shows where it needs to be raised and will still have clearance from rods, milodon may have something that will fit, this holds 10 quart's . Mike
