Other prop flange completed this morning nice and simple, give my head a temporary rest...

Cut off section of pinion coming in very handy to keep things central

and to ensure there is enough meat left to drill and tap

He says, referring to a slab of meat the size of a herd of buffalo :lol:

There's me thinking my shiny new ~12mm thick calliper brackets were pleasingly robust... wouldn't even be a spacer for yours!

Sump pickup points good enough for that?

The axle mass has its own gravity field keeping all fluids in the correct places regardless of vehicle orientation.

 

Loving this build.

I am so totally the wrong person to make those sort of suggestions to as Daan found out 

I have a selection of heavy wall pipe
