Need that ring to know where my tcase height will end up before i can get the motor set. I did make the mount bracket where it attaches to the block. Plan is to mount bushing at frame and connect to mount bracket on block with tube. Same with trans crossmember, bushings at frame on both sides of trans crossmember. Then an additional support for the tcase itself. Half ass threw the butchered eb dash in it. Looks like that shoild be easy to fit when i order a new blank dash.

And i lost my key for the chuck on my drill press. That really sucked today.


I think the motor and trans are to high in the chassis. But the oil pan is level with the bottom of the chassis. I dont want the motor skid to sit lower then the trans/tcase skid.

Ok, I see. 3/8" thick enough for thread engagement? Or do you drill into the case for bolt clearance?

Is the dash blank just a flat sheet with a couple breaks?

Just placed an order with ruff stuff for all the hiems in the rear and link mounts for the front lower crossmember.

And another order with Artec for all the rest of the link mounts and a fuel cell mount.
