That was probably it. It was pushing to one side, the front tires were scrubbing trying to take it the direction they were going, so instant instability at higher speeds. You probably wouldn't ever notice it at low speeds, but going faster magnified it. Good catch Bob. I think I mentioned it earlier when you said the driveshaft wasn't centered. Should be straight as an arrow now.

I mated the transmission to a bare block with the adapter and stuffed them into the frame. There are some new clearance and alignment problems to solve. The voice inside my head is saying, "Go slow Bob. Get it right". Won't be able to move the engine and trans a full 2" to the passenger side. I'll take what I can get.

The good part is the block fits inside the front crossmember.

Doc, still getting things lined up. Will add the spacers later. The bars originally had urethane ends which were wider.

The rear end is in alignment in all directions. Worked on engine and trans placement today. Had to make a new trans crossmember with a drop in it. The whole works will be 1 1/4" left of center, looking from the front. Pretty sure the intake manifold I've worked on so much won't fit. Sticks out too far. Probably will make one from scratch.

Thanks for explaining, bob. I'll wait to see what's happening with the intake manifold...

Finished the trans mount then it was on to 'other" things dictated by "other" people. After supper I roughed out the motor mounts. Should look a little less crude when done. The engine and trans are solid mounted. Drag racing only you know.

Motor mounts are almost completed. A tad more welding and a way to connect to the frame. Next, the driveshaft hoop, which I moved toward the passenger side will have to be moved again. I went too far.

"Two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time".
As the pics show, the top tube is in the space where the manifold wants to sit.
I have not decided whether to go over, under or wide. OrI could put a very short top tube on that side. Probably will go over and wide.The other question is should I leave the other tube alone or make them both the same. After two attempts the driveshaft hoop is in the right place.
