Experience is what you get...
The relocation of the bracket for the oil filter seems to be good - it's barely not touching anything.
So, I get to pull the hubs and try again. Good thing I didn't torque the axle nuts down yet.
Once I noticed this, I stopped pumping oil into the transmission, sighed, said "fuck" and got out from under the car.
One day, I'm going to win, but that won't be today.
Just another few things to add to the list of stuff to deal with before I turn the key.
The shocks are installed, I connected the alternator wiring, reoriented the oil pressure switch so the wire would reach it, and I started to fill the transmission with oil (which will now leak out when I pull the hubs) but I've run out of time for today. I'll try again tomorrow.
Once I'm done monkey fucking around with this stuff, I'll install the camber stop, the sled tins and the industrial tins - I'm saving that for dead last because it's a lot easier to work on things without those parts installed.
