All the parts that can be removed, have been removed. Many of the brackets that are not needed any longer have been cut off with an angle grinder and cut off wheel. Still have to grind those areas smooth and cut more off. Will have to buy the Jeep engine to GM 350th adapter to put the bare block, head and transmission in the frame. I'll need to do that to know where to position the Anglia front axle. Here's a couple pics and one of Sam and Lily doing what they do best; synchronized sleeping.

Watching you work makes them tired.

A Saturday spent cutting unneeded brackets off and grinding the welds off. Still a lot of grinding to do. I assembled the front axle assembly and placed it approximately where it will go. It's about 6" forward of the original axle but this would give plenty of clearance for the Jeep straight six.

Before I can do much more I need the engine to trans adapter. Got to place them in the chassis in order to locate the new front axle, set crankshaft centerline and build motor mounts. Today I ordered the adapter kit from Advance Adapters. Should be here in a week.

To stay busy I began porting the intake manifold. I tapped the holes for the injector nozzles and put pipe plugs in. Then I started grinding the inside of the port to remove the obstruction. It will be finished off with JB Weld. Need to get a new aluminum cutting die grinder burr so it won't take all day.

Could have used a nitrous fogger system to fill the injector holes too

A shot of nitromethane would work as well.

I have a turbocharger in the garage attic...

A friend stopped over and gave me this motometer with brass wings. He Also bought the 468 Big Block out of the Bantam. That's all part of the master plan. It gives me some working money and a place to install the 406 Small Block I removed from the Crosley.

I selected Rustoleum Ford tractor Blue paint for the chassis of the Crosley. Cleaned up the rear end and put the first coat on it with a 1" foam brush. Painted some of the roll cage just to see what it looks like. It should go okay with the yellow body.

can't tell from the pics of the ports, if you spray a little penetrating oil in there the aluminium won't stick to the carbide.

are you sure you don't want the big block in the Crosley, and shoot for some 10.10 et's?
