    We have tried 3 different oil pans and they won't clear the rack. This is the last attempt it will fit this time.

    We have decided to modify the motor mount on the block. Brian cut off the old plates and made new ones

    It's close but it clears the rack

    The engine had to be raised about a 1/2" and forward about 1/4".

    Reliable Carriers was scheduled to up pick up and take her home to Ohio on 1/2/14 so we worked through the holidays. We were here on New Years day from 7:30 - 7:00 and she was ready for pickup but they never showed up or called.

    I wanted to come over and see it while I was on my vacation, but it fell short and got called back. Only ended up with 2 days instead of 2 weeks of vaca time. Still no word word when they're picking it up?
