Not only are these BBengine frame mounts, but assembly line pieces, thanks, Scott P.(spookster). Posi unit and cover arrived (had them stored at Mom's). Before and After drum to disc ( I know, not the right MC, but I’m using what’s lying around the place. All parts are assembly line pieces! Nothing out of a catalog, except emblem. Last, emblem mounted.

"Ratty" has undergone all of it's engine compartment mods. The engine compartment was important, because, now, the engine can go in place. I wanted all the room to install the needed components and , hopefully, ease the procedure. The engine has to go in place so there is enough weight to compress the BB springs, when the spindles are changed. Makes sense. Then all the rest of the suspension can be changed. Then I will turn my attention back to the engine to finish that up and then, the interior and some body touch up paint.

The heater box was a royal pain. The old cover had a rust hole from decades of being a rodent condo. The fan was seized and the squirrel cage gnawed. That required pulling loose the Rt. fender and replacing all that stuff, ugh!

To date, the engine bay has gotten it"s BB fan shroud top bracket, muncie speedo cable, J52 brake setup, BB heater assembly(even have the correct rubber block off piece for the unused tube holes), ZL2 wiring, BB frame stands, correct speedo plug in existing firewall hole.
The funnel is on the fuel line. I soaked it in Evaporust to make sure it was clean.

Bentley - you might want to check for your emergency brake operation - could be disconnected! ;>))
