Not as fast as I want. Working a ton of overtime at work, so that's been me keeping away from the project.

Re: Project Roxy

Got the engine mounted to the frame, but I'm having issues with the oil pan hitting the rack and pinion, even with the trans tail at 6 degrees. Nate built me truss tabs with engine mount points 1/4" higher than normal and this didn't resolve the problem.

Nate is going to call me tonight to try and help resolve it. But, I was curious if anyone else has run into this problem?

As far as I know they are 283/327 valve covers. I know they came from an engine with the oil filler tube on the intake manifold. Member Delmo, welded the bungs in for me so I could put a oil cap and a pvc valve in them
