As you can see there is still work on the brackets and pulleys to be correctly fitted. I just losely fitted the kit to see how it looked! The kit is designed to fit a windsor so when the Yates SVO(Cleveland) heads were fitted things didn't line up correctly. Going to have the UGLY water pump pulley changed and set back futher to line up with the belt. I need to have the crank pulley drilled to suit a 3-hole balancer and not a 4-hole.(hence the poor fitment shown)

 I dropped the waterpump off today to a fellow forum buddy to get a new deeper  billet pulley fitted and got to cast my eye over his '69 stang while I was there!:(
     The radiator has been set forward as far possible as can be and the tranny tunnel is being worked on currently. The custom hotrod 24fuse wiring harness arrived today so I now have all the circuits to begin wiring.  The motor is sitting in the car now but will come out again for engine bay touchups!
Fuel lines and fittings arrived so fuel is ready to be plumbed. All engine fittings/wiring through the firewall can be done next week! ;+

Rear wing is fitted and set further back than factory.
Radiator re-fitted.
An Aeromotive A1000 fuel pump lurks underneath the steel shroud near the tank, protected from rubber spray and the elements. Tranny tunnel for TKO-600 is complete. Ignition sits where the battery used to be. Battery will be trunk mounted.:(

 last week i was involved in a safety incident at my new casual job. I was almost crushed by a half tonne steel door that was not isolated and there were no safety procedures to do so. I had concerns about the matter as they were not even going to report the matter so i contacted my employment agency's OH&S and the companies OH&S officers for a discussion on how we could make this safer... a couple of days later I was 'NO LONGER REQUIRED' to be working with the company..Sacked for raising safety!!
 So without  too much:- I am letting those of you who are wondering how the project is going. Its not. Once again it has come to a grinding halt due to employment issues.

Jeez, 6T9, that's harsh! Someone could have been killed or seriously hurt, there. Isn't there any appeal process to follow? If that's how they treat OH&S, they shouldn't be in business.
Good Luck. Ron B

I would suggest 'unfair dismissal'.  Wouldn't get away with that offshore.

yeah id go for un-fair dismissal . considerable evidence to support your claim. . thats shocking mate. im studying Human resources, occupational health and safety and its a shame to see that there was an issue like that in the first place and you were shamed for trying to keep your peers safe !

6T9,

My wife works for Workcover here in Vic. She suggests you talk to Worksafe (or its equivalent there in WA). It wont get you your job back , but may save someone from getting killed in the future. Plus your ex-employee might cop a fine !

Cheers,
Frank.

Love the car and good luck with your future employment.

An(old) XY GT Falcon master clutch cylinder has now been recessed so that it doesn't hit on the valve cover.


The wiper conversion is almost complete using a ZF Fairlane motor and arms/linkage.

With the computer and 24circuit fuse box taking up the old glove box space i decided to have a custom glove box fabricated.   Glove box panel CLOSED!

Glove box panel OPEN!

All the best for tomorrow. We don't want to wait too long for this project to get back on track.
It's just like the old days, waiting for the next installment of your favourite radio show.

Super build - motor looks mad - you need to see a doctor.

Well done.
