Time to take out the running engine (no not while it is actually running) and replace it with the spare block and attached gearbox. When this is fitted, I will be able to finalise the location of the gearbox mounts which will complete the basic construction phase.
Step by step engine swap.
Open the doors.
The rear frame section unbolts and slides out,
Leaving easy walk in access for the engine mounts & dangly chains.
Jack up the shell, slide the engine trolley in... Drop the van down, and wheel forward off of the engine.
Ooooo, a big empty hole!
Prepare the next engine, and roll the shell back over again.
Rear frame refitted, and box suspended with a webbing strap, prior to making the mounts.
