Viking,
some very interesting stuff going on there, with anti-roll bars inside the rear axle, synchro enabled on 1st gear, maybe new crankshafts (if their dimensions are the same as European built cars)?

Did anyone else spot the (deliberate) errors in that picture of the engine and gearbox?
One's not of much significance, but one of the other two which I noticed could well be... :roll:

Edit; the link didn't work, but it's IMG_0591.JPG in Viking's earlier post

Some very interesting images.

Bell housing on the bench?
Half finished Gbox output shaft on bench?
Prototype casting of crankcase- see felt-tip marks?
Con rods new forgings?
4 stud drive flanges.
Don't think rack and anti toll bar would fit front cross tube?
Rear Arms possible drive thru for 4x4?
Gear change on rear of box?
Rose Joint/Rod End on tie rods
If the cranks are "New" that would be great.
Would love to pay a visit

Pete,
Bell housing is for 'industrial engine' use.
A little stack of camshaft drive gears, to be pressed onto cranks?
Pass...
Hope so, as they shown new bearings for those on their website.
No thanks... ;)
True, brain fade on my part, or I took what was written on their webpage as gospel.
'Bar antirrolido front and rear of new inside design sleepers' :lol:
Pass.
Old type 'tin top' box?
Could be fun, if it works. If it doesn't, not so much fun...
Pass.
