this is what it will look like, but with 19" tires in the back and 15" in the front, hopefully I can mock it up today.

got new engine mounting holes drilled, and am in the process of trying to mount 15" tires on it. so I took the plastic bushings out of the wheels and ground down the metal hub. still have about 0.050 to go , but I think it is worth the effort.

the tranny

the difference between the new tires and the old ones

hopefully today I will get the other one done and mount the engine.

my tranny is in, need an engine pulley. the tranny is very difficult to spin, especially the axles. i may have gotten some silicon in the case.

I wouldn't think a lil silicon would make a transaxle hard to turn...
