The only way I could see it happening was if the torque tube and bell housing had been shipped as one piece, the assembly was stood on end with the bell housing raised and then dropped against a concrete floor.

Good Luck, Michael
Yes, the entire TT, bellhousing and axle were all put together. I wasnít impressed with the quality of the packaging. I ship aircraft parts all over the world and know first hand what a UPS loader can do to a box. I think we have sourced a replacement bellhousing so should be good to go.

Mounted the metal trans mount to modified stock aluminum cross member to trans. There are a few steps in attaching the new aluminum mounts to transmission which isnít to difficult, but drilling the additional bolt holes can be challenging. I used a right angle drill with 1/8thĒ pilot hole and the then drilled from opposite direction with larger drill. Also, you want to snug all the bolts and attach metal cross member in order to get everything to fit. After fittment, remove cross member and tighten bolts and reattach cross member. I am using a hydraulic motorcycle lift stand to help me raise and lower the trans and torque tube in position. I do 99% of my build by myself, so this helps me out, canít imagine how the other guys do if without.

Well, after a full day and 3 times in and out, I finally got the trans and torque tube in place.
The resason for the drive train going in so many times is to see where it hits the tunnel. You have to bend the heat shield tabs up so the TT will clear. You also need to cut a couple ears off the differential and take a large hammer and pound some clearance in the tunnel. I am doing a rear seat delete so the little intrusion is not an issue in the rear seat area and doubt it would effect the rear seat pads. The differential comes very close to the the battery box and scraped my aluminum cover. Pissed me off so I cut the corner of the battery box out and plasma cut a piece of tubing in half and welded in. You donít have to do this, I just wanted the clearance.
Still need to hang suspension, the new mounts are very close to the inboard CV flange.

Frustration peaking on my build. Received replacement TT housing for cracked one today and it is the wrong one. They sent the bell housing for TT to engine instead of to trans.
Cut notch in tunnel to clear shifter clamp. Made up wire harness on trans for VSS, reverse lockout and reverse lights. Also, modified a battery tray to fit in battery box. Using a Optima red top battery.

Installed steering rack and noticed the steering shaft was touching the header flange. The flange is over sized compared to the exhaust flange that bolts to it, so I ground some clearance.

Started running the wire harness and plugging things together. The accelerator is electronic and has a 2Ē wide connector. With the assist of Dinsdale, took the connector apart and ran harness through the throttle cable hole in firewall. I drilled out the rubber gromet and reused to seal.
I watched a video online on how to remove the pins and you donít need any fancy tool, just a pin or something small to release the pins. Took a total of 10 minutes to disassemble and reattach.

Steel Toed Toes -

Hey Blagave - In one of the pictures showing the Torque Tube/Trans test install there is a bare foot along side a stylish soft toed shoe. I thought I was the only one who worked on their cars in such obvious comfort. Or are those OSHA compliant steel toed toes ?

Great build documentation -

Michael

Yes, everything is stock. I had to cut approx. 1Ē off the rear shield were the parking brake cable runs to drivers side.

Installed rear suspension and axles. Everything went together fairly smooth, only had to massage one bracket.

Been working on the fuel system. I picked up some fittings that allow me to weld on to the existing metal fuel lines and have AN-6 fitting. I am taking the fuel pump supply line and using the connector mated to AN adapter. I will go from there to the pressure regulator, out of regulator to fuel rail on manifold. The bottom of the regulator has return, which will go into the cooler and then out back to fuel tank with stock line. All lines will be pressure tested. I have the setup for the AN side, just need the metric plug.

Mounted Fuel Regulator on fire wall. Made up -6 AN fittings SS braided fuel lines. I use a handy kit that allows for easy SS line into AN fitting and allows pressurizing the connection. Install adapter, pressureize and put in water to check for leaks.
