    If he's moving the motor back 7" won't that also move the trans back the same? So the shifter will be reachable, just coming through a different area of the tunnel.

    Brian, why the major relocation?

    I know the shifter is far back on the T56 but looking at the picture of the seat location it still looks like a stretch..but itís so hard to tell from a picture(why I asked).

    Iím guessing moving weight back for balance is the primary reason but Iím eager to hear.

    Weight further back means it can launch better.

    Yes, better weight distribution. Stock from Ford,in order to have a big back seat area,the engine/driver are very far forward. Figure with the fuel call and radiator at the back I can get it 50/50. The shifter is within reach,but if it needs it,Sikky makes these: https://www.sikky.com/product/t56-ma...elocation-kit/

    9" being the longest,4" the shortest.

    Been playing around with motor plates,waiting on the rear suspension parts is getting old! Don't want to cut anymore floor pan out until I weld in the 4 link frame and subs.

    Happy New Year Guys. I finally got some parts and can get at it. I went ahead and cut all the floor out. Figured it'd be easier/better in the end.

    Tack welded in place for now:

    Bought the rear clip jig welded, figured it'd go in faster and be straight/square...now my opinion is unwelded would be better. Shipping was more $, and it's got a few less than perfect spots. Nothing too bad, just me being picky.



    The rails/connectors and the rest will be what ever I come up with.
