Looks fantastic
Quick question what did they do to front of K frame to get motor in?

Happy driving whats it like to drive?


to make the engine fit they notched out the k-frame and its welded and braced with high tensel steel to keep its strength and that makes room for the sump. to make it sit lower, the engine mount bolt holes are ovaled out slightly and then just a little bit of panal beating on the bonnet bracing means everything fits and a sleeper is born.

I cant even begin to tell you how nice it is to drive...one word (effortless ) haha and lastnight when the roads dryed up me and dad went for a cruise and the amount of power it puts to the road is amazing.....just have to get my diff tightened :)

Good on ya dude. Enjoy have fun and Be careful.

So what did Bruce charge you? $ How much hey?

I know asking can be considered as sounding rude,
but if you had done the conversion yourself, i wouldnt have asked.

Awesome man, this is what I want to do in the future, just love the DOHCs. Keep it as a sleeper tho IMHO, just maybe get some fatter tires :P

Good on ya mate for keeping with the EL, if I wore a hat, I would take it off to you, and never put one on again 8-)
