Vince,
Not sure if you saw the pickup box I finished the day before leaving for Tieton it adds the detail needed on the back. I am attaching shots of the engine mounting arrangement. I’m not sure I like the clone torque converter and have purchased a Comet unit. I’ll include some of those for reference. There are some big differences in the casting which will required a little hand work for clearances. Once it’s installed I’ll follow up with what I found. The sprockets are 12 and 60 tooth for 35 chain which I also plan on changing not sure what yet so we’ll see.

Thanks for the pictures Al.

I have the Comet TAV, but I haven't picked up the engine yet. I did a mock up of the engine from the drawings and figured out the bolt hole arrangement and it matched your arrangement. I can see that there is clearance on the chain side without the need to trim the fins of the TAV as seen with those that have the TAV pointed towards the front.

Did you have to do any trimming on the side of the TAV that faces the engine? The sprocket shaft of the TAV looks like it may have a tight fit into the engine area.

Vince.

Vince,
I haven’t completed mounting the TAV as yet but I do see two places that could be a problem on the Predator motor. The two last photos illustrate what I found. First was the clone converter support webs on the driven shaft interfered with the oil fill cap. I chose to grind off some of the web; another way would be to trim the filler cap which would not require removing as much material from the web. I’ll let you know if it is the same on the TAV. The second issue can be seen in the last photo I loaded late yesterday of where the cover attaching boss contacts the cooling shroud with a little reshaping of the shroud is all that is needed. When the TVA is attached to the motor we will need to make sure there are no other interferences’ I plan on replacing the Predator with a Honda later this summer just to compare. One or the other will go into the next CK.
Hope that helps.
Al

I have had some time to add a little more details. The Ford emblem came from a good friend Glen Anderson it’s a perfect fit. I just finished the windshield last week.

I have updated my Roadsters trailer with new tie-downs from a local manufacture called MAC'S In Sagle ID. No worried about it being secure on the trailer for sure.

Brian,
If you compare them to the price of 4 off the shelf tie-downs for sure they are. The cost will be around $350 depending on the options you select. It's a measure of knowing the CK is secure for me.
