Total drive train weight..........................................................
In order to get my throw out bearing to work I had to fine a new front bearing retainer, that whole flange and the tube extending forward to carry the throw out. Not easy since I'm in a new town.
Here is the hydrolic throw out bearing installed and the line brought out through the bell housing

I have the clutch and throw out bearing installed and the trans and bell housing put on the block. I'm ready to reinstall the Quad 4 into the chassis.
A couple shots after the engine was hoisted into place. Time to put the starter and alternator in place. Lots done now but still lots to do.
I used my lathe to make couplings to assemble the cooling pipes all the way to the radiator from the back of the engine. It took about 6 feet of elbows and u- shapes to get it there. There's a notch cut in ends of the steel couplings for the hose clamps to grab. I had to make 10 or 12 of them.
Just a shot of the intake side of the Quad.. It all fits in very neatly.
