Life has been in the way a bit recently.
Anyway, looked at the 2 year old starter i pulled off the 240 and the S70 one I had laying around. Noticed they are both 108 series bosch starters. Hmm the S70 one needed new brushes.
Well the 240 starter brush assembly is the same as the S70 one, as is the outer casing and the end cap. Freebie rebuild. Woot.

You know I just had my S70 starter apart to replace that braided cable that goes from case to solenoid, and I was wondering how similar it was to a 240 starter. Good to know!

That braided cable is a tad shorter, but bend the tab on the end and it fits fine.

Hornbach started selling those?

If so, I'm going to grab a few tonight...

Looking good!

Engine out, oil pan on, trans on and back in.
The ribs on the pickup tube bump need a little trimming, otherwise the 2x4 plus chain whip clearance seems to be good with me :D
Depending on weather, i'll get the trans crossmember modified tues or wed.

Wow that's quite an arc in the swaybar! No problem with the power steering rack being there? I seem to remember Karl complaining something about that, maybe it was that the oil filter doesn't clear?

I think he means the swaybar itself looks kinda bent in the middle section. Probably doesn't hurt anything, but yeah, quite the bow to it.

Yeah I think it got a little damaged at some point, no worries. Still works.
You can see the ribs in the oil pickup bump that would create issues with the PS rack. I just need to grind those down a bit.
I've got a right angle filter adapter off a 960 so there won't be any clearance issues.

Engine mount mockup. So these are yanked from a swede that did a 6cyl swap. They'll need some redesigning for my application but are good for hardpoints. They will be bolt in though. Only another hole through the x-member is needed. (as well as an insert spanning the x-member)

Trans x-member is 90% done. I need to lengthen the holes without the rubber isolators. I moved the x-member up 2 sets of holes in the frame rails.
0--x--x---0---*---*


0--x--x---0---*---*

x is new location, * is stock m47 location. (Left being the front of the car) Notice the spacing is slightly different. About a bolt width closer.




And with a large torqueing of the engine(almost an inch in engine mount compression/extension) the trans doesn't contact the tunnel.

Good call on the bubble wrap. Should cut down on gear noise.

Next step I think is filling the trans tunnel with great stuff.

So this 740 M47 driveshaft might be the exact right goddamn length.
Possibly switching the output flange on the M90 to the 3 bolt guibo flange dealy. Anyone want to trade ?

You're going to actually voluntarily change from a u-joint to a guibo?

Does that make sense?
