Or a horizontal shaft opposed lol! Looks good so far Rich! Hopefully the belt setup doesn't cause too much of a headache, haha.

An oppy would be kinda heavy for what I want. Although its really that I dont have one lol.

And hell no. No torque converters for me. I'll stick with something i know works, and won't slip underwater, thanks.

Put a torque converter between the 2300 and the Engine! Then you have really high rpm range!
I'd go with a torque converter, because you can't really shift a 2300 in motion very easily.  So with the planned pulley swap you are not going to have too much torque in a high gear.  But it would slip a ton under water.

Well they are an old sliding gear trans, but the one side of the gears on the main shaft have a bevel on them, which helps. The 600's, 1200's, and 2300's all have very similar gear clusters, shift shafts, etc.

Spent some time getting her running today. Just had to gap the points, really. She's still kinda iffy but better than before.

Also the fuel valve doesn't leak like i think it did, which is good.

The muffler was on there before. Thinking of using the flange i made for mutt for the exhaust on her though. That'd be kinda nice for taking it all apart

Oh, and if I'm not working tomorrow i suppose I'll take the dash and shifter gate off to get better access to the belt system and get on the belt system, maybe

I like the metal fuel line too and definitely go with the flange.  That makes things easier to work on and change.
