in regards to the footroom there are ways around it.

    chev small blocks are narrower so you instantly have more room than other makes

    you can fit the motor offset to the left and have as much room as you want,

   if you sit the motor back a little and as low as possible the rocker covers sit about the same height as the floor and you build the engine cover as part of the floor (i used fibreglass so i had no limits to the shapes i created) so you can still have plenty of room to work on the motor once the engine cover is off but plenty of leg room once engine cover is on, it was hard to get engine cover out so i made it 2 peice cut in the middle side to side.

    you could also move the steering collumn also if you found that easier??

you could do any of these or a combination and have enough room for a left foot.

seriously what cant you do with a beddy!!!

"Also have found cracking on these plates"

yeh my passenger side bolt almost pulled through on my front end. i thought it was to do with my 350 chev but maybe its another design fault:)

you wont know good it is untill you look at it. most of the rust looks like surface rust, may be quite a good shell.

Thanks sammy I have been told the hose clamp trick but I didn't know you can keep it loose so it spins into place.

Also been told put the shaft in salt water with the hose clamp on and spin it and balance it that way, apparently the salt water helps it to float.

I think it will be right after talking to a mate who welded ihis up after not using a dial indicator and he said no vibration. Crazy..
