Reassembly

Roughly two years ago I separated the shell from the pan so that I could rebuild the shell - i.e. remove the rusty bits. Here we are, two busy years later and I am now able to put the two back together. The primary reason was that in changing the engine mount from swing axle to IRS I needed to add engine mounts for the IRS hanger and to do that I need a location for each side. The most sensible way was to use the engine and transaxle. So once the shell was atatched to the pan we mated an engine case and my new to me Rancho Pro Street tranny. That gives me the location for the mounts.
