WooHoo! problem fixed im using a cut sump from a te cortina with modified pick up, very custom but puts the pan of the sump at the rear of the crossmember similar to the old torana engine that was in there. sorry no pics but have had the engine out while working on the oil pump/sump problem. :D

Well better give an update its been ages, and in that time i had my digital camera stolen with all my working shots of the torana so im plenty annoyed coz i really wanted to show everyone.

this is what has been done so far,
- firewall and gearbox tunnel removed
- T5 installed using standard torana mount and crossmember
- EB motor rebuilt 20 thou oversize with heavy duty lifters race cam, and very high compression for....... tripple 45 webbers i have mounted onto the motor on a manifold designed and built by dad!
- race clutch adapted to torana clutch pedal (completely different setup!)
- steering column altered to use laser uni joints to allow column to clear side of bellhousing
- sump on the motor created using 5 different sumps (EA,TE cortina, LJ torana, EH, and escort), now reversed so pan at rear of motor with custom pick up and dip stick mount.

thats it so far been way to busy with that and the gearbox blowing up in my mk2 esky rally car havent really been using a computer for ages, hopefully ill be buying a camera soon so i can show all my creation!

cheers
