Got the transmission back on the engine and into the chassis to check out the clearance issues with the transmission oil pan. My 6-speed kit came with 4 .60″ spacers. I assumed that these were the spacers Jim Schenck mentioned they used to clear the chassis. There aren’t any instructions for the spacers. I am guessing they go on top of the engine mounts. Have an email out to FFR to confirm.
Out of curiosity I tried two at the transmission mounts. No way.
Assuming these spacers go on top of the engine mounts, that pushes the engine even closer to the top cross bars making an already tight area even more so. A chassis modification might still be the best way to go.
