ITS ALIVE...ITS ALIVE...ITS ALIVE..!!!

So is it safe to say when no one is around you make engine noises with your mouth and pretend your hitting those gears?

I'm thinking my HUD idea just isn't going to fit the dashboard, so my next challenges will comprise of putting the dash and console back. Then I can focus on building up the engine, clutch, and mounting it to the engine cradle (along with rebuilding the front suspension)

That'* a sharp looking T-type by the way. A wholesale car auction by me has had one sitting inside the fence for a couple months now, I've been a little curious about it

F14'* at it again!



Reatta'* engine cradle. I'll be replacing the suspension bushings, steering rack and inner tie rods, and painting it before it goes back in. No obvious rust damage



Driver'* side transmission mount. You'll see this later...



This is where the hydraulic mount goes, near the a/c compressor



To anyone that thought the F40 wouldn't mount to a 3800...it does . I figured I'd see how this would mount to the cradle tonight for the heck of it so I put a few bolts to it and the bellhousings match just fine. I don't have a clutch set built yet...that'* probably going to be next in my budget



The shift cable bracket (holds the cables to the transmission) are in the way of the exhaust crossover, so I took the bracket off. I'll make any modifications needed after i get TOGs



Now I realize that piece of steel was the flywheel cover...oooops





-insert dramatic music here-







This bolts up just fine



The trans is resting on the cradle where the driver'* side trans mount is supposed to be (notice the trans side is higher than the harmonic balancer side (I'm trying not to get anyone confused, I'm known to do that)



The 4T60 does not extend out this far out; past where this mount bolts to the cradle. This is gonna take some fabrication. I dont think its extreme as it looks in this pic. I figure I can cut off the existing bracket that'* welded to the cradle and come up with my own. I might actually have to get my buddy Mario (the welder) to help me with this one.









This is the G6 bracket and mount. I'm gonna ask the G6 board for some photos. Obviously the 3900 and F40 mount differently...i suppose you could say their engine is "higher" and the cradle'* "lower"



Camera decided flash wasn't needed and these came out blurry, but for reference, this is the Reatta trans mount and bracket for that side. Do Bonneville'* have anything similar?





Out back, behind the engine. This is the G6 "jackshaft" to the passenger side wheel. Definitely gonna have to relocate the oil filter...I'll ask my contacts about this



Gonna have to figure out mounting this jackshaft bearing too





Couple more pix of the driver'* side trans situation



This G6 mount came with the parts I bought. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out how to attach it to the cradle





Back in the car...I wanted to retake the photos of the shifter and how it fit in the console. I don't think I'll have any problems putting the rest of the console together





Its mounted solidly. The washer stacks worked well. Drilled a few holes in the Reatta "console base" and some new steel plating (16 gauge, I believe. Whatever'* really close to 1/8'')













The G6 grommet appears to be too big but I haven't investigated this yet.

BTW, the 1 ton folding cherry picker was $100 at Harbor Freight. I'm happy I finally have one...the backhoe isn't quick nor easy nor safe

EDIT: this is a link to the discussion on my engine mods...http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...=997955#997955
