Just as a thought, RSI still has the jig for my car's header and I'm sure they would be happy to cobble one together for you. If you're interested, I could make some measurements to see if it's tight enough to fit into a 240. Since the header was originally designed to fit around the 960 mounts, I'm guessing you'd be golden there unless you plan on running A/C, then the 960 mounts will become a PITA for accessory clearance.

I'm looking forward to seeing how your setup runs since you're not using an LPT motor like I am. I'm especially interested in seeing how the N/A cams work since I'm still running the tiny LTP bumpsticks.

Really glad to see more State-side people leaving tractor-town!

That header doesn't look like it'll fit a 240.

After looking at my pictures again, I'm also thinking it looks too wide at the bottom to clear the rails on a 240 . Ah well, I can still measure if there's interest. Either way, I'm really excited to see others coming down this path!

Yeah doesn't look promising, but measurements cant hurt!
Some dowel pins arrived for the flywheel from mcmaster. Needs a resurface too.

More parts found at JY.
960 TB
Right angle filter adapter and heat exchanger
T-belt tensioners and idler. (The bearings on these weren't even broken in yet. 850 had a tbelt change before it went to the yard it seems)

I need to get my act in gear. I've got a few things I need to model and add to the pile of stuff to get waterjetted.
i.e. Throttle cam thing to move the ball pivot 20 deg clockwise so its not over center in the closed position.

I'm throwing the idea around of making an airbox to fit in the space where the washer tank is. There is plenty of space, I've found a few OE filters that should fit the bill for size and I'd rather have something that looks like it's supposed to be there.

Edit: turbo gets here on friday apparently.

Sounds like a good idea you should have loads of space to fit an airbox
