140 of them…unbridled power…:)

The engine and transmission have finally arrived at Bracewell. The bilge is being painted today (Friday 8 Feb 2013) and once dry the engine and transmission will be installed.

Due to the drop down transmission, the engine is going to have to be raised 5 inches. This will allow the driveshaft coupling to line up with the drive from the transmission, however, there will have to be some modifications to the engine mounts.

The engine and transmission can’t be installed as an integral unit so they will be separated, the transmission installed first , then the engine.

I must admit the engine looks pretty sharp and the transmission is very impressive. Looking forward to seeing everything together.
