Notched the support and fitted replacement metal

Rack welded and chassis notch welded

Brake booster mount shortened and bought closer to firewall, this may be shifted over closer to the shock tower once engine is in for extractor clearance

So it turns out the flexplate is from a 400 chev, since i bought a hi torque reduction drive starter motor and nothing lines up correctly, including flexplate to crankshaft

So have now purchased the correct flexplate, so hopefully this week i'll have it all together and into engine bay to see how much room i have to play with for extractors
