 Now the engine is fully bolted in. Had lots of trouble with the right hand rear floating mount and eventually removed all 4 bolts holding the mount to the frame rail. The floating mount was then bolted to the rear cross member and then with the use of a pry bar aligned the 4 bolt holes. The long way round is often the quickest.

Love it Tom, while I was getting a five hour cancer treatment,  you were busy on the '41 I too can't wait to hear her run.  I so agree with what Go posted

 Thank you
Bob and Go, it's good to get feedback, it's part of why I do it. Today I expected my friendly Farmer to give me a hand putting the engine in place as the floor of the container is a couple of foot above ground level but that didn't happen so I struggled. Why are theses engine/trans so heavy, had the ground been flat and concreted or at least a good surface but there, it sits on the frame overnight ready for some rock-n-roll in the morning.

 Been a while since posting here, moved along a little with this 41, have stripped the bodywork off of the front end so that I could prepare it for a 1947 T142 engine trans that has been de-coked and tidied in readiness for fitting.

Still can't embed Photos into text

You made me chuckle,  that's why I asked him for a photo,  never done business with him before because he's about 60%+. You would have seen it on P15-D24,  keep you posted.

I remember seeing the one in your truck in some other photos, I sure hope the one this guy has is much better, I don't see how it could be any worse  LOL   Good luck my friend

 Have gotten back to the guy with the $100 speedo to see if he can send me a photo, would imagine this one is shot.

Glad to hear that all is falling into place

100 dollars for the speedometer sounds good in my book, even if it doesn't work, you have something to go by besides the one in your truck.

 Feeling very pleased, last evening I had it confirmed that the Drive-line I spoke about higher up the thread is now mine. Fortunately I have a very good friend in TN that travels around quite a bit with his business, he will pick it up for me, take it back to his shop and dispatch it to port when he has some other parts I'm waiting on. All is looking good so far this new year, picked up a 4ft guillotine, a fly press a blacksmiths anvil and a 3.5 ton 2 post lift, after having a sort out should be able to crack-on at speed. There is still another Drive-line local to me with the 4 speed box but still waiting to hear on that and whats with it. Have been offered a speedo for $100 does that sound good?

 Was able to collect the truck this last Thursday, good mornings work for 140 mile round trip. There's a lot happening on a complete drive train currently but not secured yet, will keep  you posted.

Thanks Tom
