After running into many parts that didn’t fit in the car I’m glad to say that I’m finally making some progress again. One of the main issue was the engine mounts, I had a pair custom made which ended up not fitting properly. The second pair ended up working perfectly except that with the engines new position the brake cylinder no longer fits. Also having some exhaust fitment issues, but that’ll be handled by a guy I know that builds custom exhaust.
Another issue was fitting the M47 transmission. Had to use a special Adapter plate to get the transmission sit vertically instead of the stock slant. Was easier than hunting down the mythical m45/B20 bellhouse that cost fortune. The tunnel also needed to be widened which I found a way to do with out dropping the engine and transmission.
