getting closer, the stainless exhaust pipes, from nc, driver side, goes down, i need to lift it up, pass side looks like its to long, and not the right bends, that goes for both pipes,

any that takes it back behind doors, and that is how much straight pipe i will have at start up, should sound nice,

going to have to put a jack under lower case, then will have to take it off when trans goes in, still waiting to get 2 rings ground, its only been a year and a half..........that has held me, up..

still need to make 2 alum brz, bushing for reactor shaft,,,lathe went down,,,,,,,,,,


i hope the pipes don't set with break in, i may block them , where they should be in cradle,,, have not finished exhaust hangers yet,,,,,

Now that is the way Packard should have done them. That groove that they put in the middle is the source of the breakage as those pins see high bending loads. Mistakes like that are the type made by young engineers. Mr Delorean?
