I think he is referring to the structure on your rear axle.

Lot of room left:



Engine in it's place. Only with straps so we can easy measure and test fit the brackets:

Engine support brackets finished:









Engine in it's final location. A little higher as expected, so the hood doesn't close anymore, but this was better for the drive shaft alignment.



A little progress on the exhaust headers. Form is roughly OK. Base plate needs to be cleaned up and made 10 MM thinner. Tubing tacked in place just for fitting. Nothing final.



Plenty of room left..

Looking good Peter!

Off topic, but how old is your vise? I've never seen one where the rear jaw is moveable and the front is fixed solid... Is there a name stamped in the side of it?

This vise is a family piece.... It belonged to my uncle who was a blacksmith. When he sold his business some 40 years ago, the vise went in to his garden, where it stood all this time uncovered for the elements. A year ago, my uncle asked me if i could use it. He is 84 now and not strong enough anymore to use it. I painted it and put a little grease on it and it was as good as new. Almost no rust and no play at the mechanical parts at all! There are no markings on it, but my uncle told me it was made in the USSR.
