Time to clean...
I hung the Python exhaust hoping to find some inspiration in where to mount the remote oil filter and have, so far, come up with nothing new. I may very well have to use one of those exhaust hanger deals with some sort of extension to get it away from the engine a bit more.
A conversation was had yesterday with the original engine builder - he's confirmed that he's got all of the parts with the exception of the stock flywheel - should have that and the other rotating parts over to balance on Monday and the entire group should ship next week. I continue to document everything and remain skeptical but optimistic, if that is a thing.
I really wish I could just take the rest of the car apart and do the body work and paint - but the timing isn't good...on the other side of the coin - I should be able to drive this car in September with a good engine, trans and fully finished pan.
I have NOS levers but don't really want to install them until the car is painted.
