Other than seriously overestimating the strength of small ratchet straps that acted as a crossmember, there were no issues with getting it back home last night. Boy were my neighbors happy to see it back here again.

Cage is finished, welded, painted and installed. Seat mounts and harness mounts are done too. Interior is about as complete as it is going to get.

Oh, and Andrea found it really funny to look out the window and see me sitting in the cage in the driveway. Apparently she has never tried to position seatbelts before.

And any thoughts on a better way to mount the trans than what I came up with? The 241 adapter is really tall, seems to hang 2.5" below the frame while everything else is pretty flat. I plan to make 2 hoops that I will weld to the main crossmember bar that I already have; 1 will go forward and surround the trans pan while the other will go rearward and surround the t-case, both will be plated and have other supports that span to the frame. I'm kinda out of ideas on how to make it any better, the t-case is already through the floor and the engine cant go any higher as the trans is stuffed into the tunnel as it is.

With the poly engine mounts I didn't think I would need too much flex out back..... I cut a chunk of 6 ply sidewall out of an old tire and cut it to fit between the mount and the angle iron. My only concern is that the bolts will always want to come out. Thoughts?

Use a bit longer bolt, and put a lock nut up against the xfer case, with some big flat washers over the rubber, so it gives a little bit. Get what I'm imagining?

OK, I'm bored, so here you go.

I did the same thing years ago. The bolts would always come loose, then the holes got trashed. Not a good way to do it. You can cut the bottom of the mount down about 1/2", bolt a plate to it and weld a tube next to it for a bushing. It would move things up about an inch.

is tha adapter symmetric? ie, can you flip it 180 deg so the mounting holes are on the top?

That mounting pad looks about 2" thick, what would ya think about milling a 1" off it and redoing the xmember to "cup" around the mounting pad, setting the adapter inside it on a some type of plastic. I had a t case adapater on one of my vehicles rested on I believe a 1/2" thick piece of Delrin, i think thats what it was.

Or Maybe mount the xmemeber to the adapter solid, then mount the xmemeber to the frame with some sorta bushing?

It's still just sitting in my driveway, so lets get a picture of that:

The engine is in and bolted down now. I guess I can start wireing it and making some rad hoses and power steering lines. Still looking for a 1310 or 1350 yoke for a 9" if anyone has one.

I could prolly peel one off a early bronco 9" I got. I'll double check see what size it is tonight. I can get it as far below the bridge as the frankenmuth auto fest this weekend.
