RE: AZ Lincoln Build
It has begun! Disassembly starts on Monday. The P-Ayr mock up engine and tranny have been delivered. Engine hoist, stand, and accessories are arriving UPS freight on Monday also. The speed shop I was talking to here, was a no show, so this will be built in my garage.

I've seen those plastic blocks, want one but don't wanna spend that much on one.
I have extra engines and a trans...but they are heavy.

LOUD EXHAUST IS FUN! AM I SHOUTING?

RE: AZ Lincoln Build
Thanx people!

Lol..... My C.O. bought me the T-shirt for Christmas that says in big letters on the front, "Just one more car part, I promise", and on the back it has a picture of crossed fingers.

UPS got here early with the engine stand and accessories. I guess the hoist will show up Monday. The UPS Freight lady called and said Monday, but I'm not complaining. I emailed CE Auto Electric Supply in Gilbert, AZ about the battery relocate cable legs, and relays, panels, and such. I'm an old Bell system PBX repairman, so electrical stuff is understood fairly easily.

Still plotting and planning. When we get the Ford 2V motor and the 4R70 out, it will be easier to see just how much room there is. Gotta' figure out what to do with the Ford stuff. The tranny rebuild has less than 1500 miles on it, most of which were simply driving it from Phoenix to San Antonio. Ah well, live and learn.

RE: AZ Lincoln Build
In regards to that plastic engine, is it solid plastic or hollow?
Does everything bolt to it(intakes, oil pans, covers, etc)?

RE: AZ Lincoln Build
Hi,
The engine and the transmission, (these are separate pieces), appear to be constructed of a dense solid foam with metal inserts to bolt everything, (the real parts), to them for mockup. The heads come off, so you can fit the actual pieces. This is great because I had planned to use the 4 bolt LS7 heads that I already have. The block weighs about 15 lbs, and the tranny is maybe 10-12.

In a nutshell, I am quite happy with the pieces. Yes, it was expensive, but the ease of use that equates to time saved, was worth it for me.

Having said that, I may as well post the project change I decided upon. Please remember that I come to you/this forum from the superbike ranks, starting in 1975 with the 900 Kawasaki, the 1981 Suzuki GS1100, and finally, the Kawasaki ZX-12R. I know some of you have one, so I needn't explain what the power to weight ratio is like. It's pretty much like nothing else that's streetable.

Yesterday, I got up and spent the day driving the car. All day. The objective was to simply run the gas out of it in preparation for the teardown. After some conversations with the C.O., (who went with me), I decided this car will never be what I really want, and is basically too nice as it sits to try and recreate. I talked to the others involved in the proposed project, and they agreed. My Dad-in-law would love to have this car, and I may just give it to him. Or not.

The sticking point was the disassembly. I thought, "why not just build from scratch with entirely new pieces?". So, there it is. My first choice is the Brunton Stalker XL. I will talk to them tomorrow. Here's a shot of a finished XL.

RE: AZ Lincoln Build
I used a foam 350 SBC mock-bloxk to determine fitment of a TH-400 in my 85 S-10 Pro Street truck. Everyone said "it wont fit without modifying the tunnel". I had a TH-400 case (bare, aluminum, empty) that I bolted to the mock engine block and shoe'd it in to the S-10.
They were wrong. It fit right in with inches to spare. I borrowed the mass-foam mock block and bare transmission case from a local hot rod shop. Nothing a 12 pack of beer wont let you borrow these days.
