WOW! I think I said that before.
If you have questions, please come here to ask. Also, we would all love to see your progress. I would especially love to see what clutch setup you are using along with the starter placement. If I may ask, it looks like a new Ricardo transaxle -- can you give us some more details on where you acquired it? Was it difficult to find?
Very interesting -- I applaud your work and the best of luck with getting it done!
