    Mark, I think your comment needs elaboration as to why you made that statement?

    Directed toward a couple hacks on the other site, who cried to moderators when you pointed out errors in their ways.

    Progress Update

    Finished up on the drivers side x-member mod and moved on to the drivers side. Pretty much the same on the drivers side with the exception of being a bit shorter as the transmission is not quite as wide on the drivers side. Also the new frame section should still allow mounting the brake pedal and master cylinder under the floor as original if I decide to go that route.



    Passenger side all welded in and the front portion of the old x-member cut away. Just behind where I trimmed the rear portion of the x-member the original frame had a cross member. The plan is to add one back in once I finalize the engine and transmission mounts.



    Drivers side frame section all welded up and ready to get welded back in.



    Bolted back into the frame ready to weld in place.



    All welded up and the old x-member section removed.



    Another view from inside the car. You can kind of see where the original cross member was riveted to the x-member in this shot. The original rivet holes are just behind where I cut the x-member off and is most likely where I will tie in a new cross member.



    With my mock up block and transmission back in place and pretty close to the right position looks like everything should have enough clearance. I have the frame level side to side and about 2 degrees down in front to simulate eventual ride height front to rear. The engine and trans are at 2.5 degrees down where they sit right now. The front of the engine can't go much lower as it is about 1/2" above the steering rack where it sits. Should be ok like this but I will raise the tail shaft of the trans a bit if I have room in the tunnel.



    View from above shows plenty of clearance to the transmission pan. I made it about 3" wider than the trans pan so it will clear and be enough room to work around it also (hopefully). It's a little tight in the tail shaft area so a bit more trimming will be needed in that area.



    Here I put the firewall back in place with a few screws and it looks like there should be enough clearance there as well. The trans dipstick tube will be replaced eventually as it is for a 95 Firebird which is what the transmission came out of. Plenty of room for a different shape and length tube though.



    With the new trans tunnel just set in place it looks like it will have good clearance also. Before finalizing engine and trans position I want to set a distributor in place to check that clearance to the firewall and bolt the heads back on the engine to check that as well as the oil pressure sending unit. I will most likely bolt the front fenders and grill in place to make sure there is room for a radiator and fan also. Right now the back of the block is right at the firewall recess so I think it is close to where it needs to be but if have room to set it back a bit more that would be a good thing.
