I have started working on getting the engine mounted in the car, first step was to make a basic low profile dolly long enough to carry the engine and trans mounted together.

It cost me about $30 in material, the castors are cast iron so they can easily take they weight, it works really nice.

I tried to slide the engine into position but the reinforcement in the tunnel stopped it going as far back as allowed under the rules.

Removing the reinforcement was not fun at all, especially during the heatwave that just ended today. 2.16kg in total.

All gone!

The engine could now slide back as far as I needed with some room to spare. I also took opportunity while the car was up in the air to lower the rear differential so I would have a better alignment and lower COG.

These next 2 photos show the engine basically 99% in its final position. I have ordered a laser pointer to get it in the exact position.
You can see it sits reasonably low and a fair way back.

Next step is to figure out engine mounts, steering rack mounts and basically triangulating everything together.
