    What supplier did you go for with the chassis? Richards seems to be the default, but there are a number of others too.

    Im almost tempted to strip mine back that far, but its just not bad enough to really justify. That and the £x thousand point bill for the new chassis! : )

    Went to shielder chassis in the end- they were the cheapest. The way I look at it is it’ll be 2k on a chassis to build a motor that’ll be worth 10k easily

    we fitted a shielder chassis on a mates 110 over xmas, good quality apart from one x member that was out of square.
    looks like they fitted one end in front of the line and the other behind a line.

    So newest update.....

    bulkhead has been repaired and painted, no pictures of the repair work because frankly im useless and only ever remember to take photos after the jobs been done. bulkhead wasnt the greatest internally but itll get a load of cavity wax and live long enough to allow me to save up for a galv bulkhead. ill be raptoring the bulkhead and seat box to dampen resonance through the panels a touch.

    also new is the engine, provided by the absolute hero that is @8ob. its currently at work where itll be steam cleaned and tarted up a bit before being dropped in

    probably just a plug and play, maybe a coat of paint. for the miles it will do itll last for a while yet, and any other work can be done in the chassis :)

    Its fine, been stood a while now so could do with a mock up rad, intercooler pipes joined together and running for an hour. Very few miles on the truck it came out of, dont forget its drained of oil :thumbup:

    It’ll go on the test bed at work for some gentle running. Might even hook it up to the dyno if I’m feeling it :D

    Seatbox, floor plates and the cab side of the bulkhead now raptored in an effort to reduce panel “drumming”

    My top top is if you get one, make sure you have a working engine crane to lift it. Nearly killed my self unloading it by hand the other day when I brought it home from work

    It’s in.... sort of! Need to tweak the mounts to get it level and offset the right amount

    get yourself a digital angle gauge or two to set the engine angle , your driveline kinematics will be correct then

    Can I ask How do you plan to tweak the mounts ?

    Shim up what's low and remove excess from what's high ? I'd guess if within reason .....

    If not reposition the mount to accomdate the tilt needed ?

    Crack the tack welds on the engine mounts and adjust them :)

    How much heavier is the 6bt than the original engine? I often wonder if the added weight turns them into pigs to drive? Even if it does Id still like to build a 110 with a 6bt. Maybe one day!
