I'm going to try and use an E28 clutch and flywheel assembly and beef it up since it's single mass.

Put the stewart waterpump in:

I found that the seals under the car including the body drain plug have cracks and aren't sealed properly anymore:

So I'm going to use this to seal it back up:

Heres the radiator mock up, still need the straps :roll:

I bet I will have spent 4,500 when everything is said and done. It's cheap, but you eat the labor.

Heres the head after I cleaned it:

Heres the deck after a bit of cleaning:
Image
Image

I had to wallow out the holes on the manifold flanges to get it to slide on the head properly:
Image
Image
Image

Put the head back on for a mock up and ran into this little snag:
Image
Image
It only fits If there is no head light, Rather than having to mess with it even more, I asked the guy who made it for me to fix it once I finish it I finish everything else. He just needs to adjust the elbow off of the manifold further back and closer to the engine.
