So Engine and frame set in but boy this CRV box is tight.
Gearbox full forward on mount but still hitting on steering rack, canít pull Engine any further forward or hitting inner guard,
Really if I was starting from scratch I would go for a flip front. So rather than cut up the front, move radiator ETC going to move steering rack
This will bring it back in line with metro steering arms and might make the rack mount adjustable when Iím at it to dial out bump steer.

Good stuff ! Is bump steer less with the back wheels pushing the front along??
I believe the front has less time to get confused!

Good question, will keep it at standard height to start off and go from there.. see what angle the arms are sitting when I get it on the wheels.

No going back now, Engine and frame back out, steering rack panel removed, also noticed the gear selector bracket was running close to bulkhead so making at small pocket to clear.

Did I see cranked track rod ends on it? Like a bend in the cast arm?

Think the CRV ones are cranked so wheel clears them on full lock

Had a go at making steering rack panel

Itís pretty beefy
Adjusting bolts on top didnít really work out so have to rethink

Just need to trim around the ends and get it all welded up.

Panel welded in, its only when you start these things you realise your welding to 50 year old steel.
