N54 Powerglide

Drag racing setup below.

Getting close to having it driving.
Should have some videos of it running in the coming weeks.
Im down to some minor things

Transmission custom make a brace
Tighten converter, has a 3mm gap which i think is perfect
Hook up shifter cable to transmission
Make a hoop for driveshaft
Make a custom trans cooler setup
Shorten drive shaft. No one can do it in Darwin unfortunately.

Engine stuff
Make oil feed 100mm longer to avoid manifold better
Shorten chargepipe and blank off bov
Add meth bung on intercooler cold side
Get some silicone for intercooler joins
Wire clutch so it starts put wire 3 and 4 together i think

Figure out how to tune it

Spent a few hours working on the car Saturday and Sunday.

Cut a bit more of the tunnel to get more room for shifter cable bracket.
Got the bellhousing tightened
Converter bolts tightened.
Shifter cable hooked up and working.

Put the new slip yolk on my driveshaft and it was around 30mm to long. So close but not close enough to work. I will look for some one in Australia or just go to DSS to get one.

So many little things that take so much time. 2 of the bellhousing bolts took over 2 hours for example.

Pretty happy the shifter is now hooked up.
Looking forward to making the transmission brace next week.

Nothings easy and the simplest task are painful.
I bought a good brand dipstick and it doesnt fit. Not cheap $180 for a dipstick!

First of all the rubber sleeve wouldnt go in the hole it kept bunching up. I even put it in the freezer and got it in half way only to find out the nut hits the case.

Something else to figure out.

LOL sounds like the instructions helped

Keep at it, keen to see this running

Thats why it wouldn't fit!

Nah I was just using common sense instead of reading the instructions.
It had a rod go in the top that allows you to tighten from the top. That extra piece I thought was rubbish was a tool I needed.

Got it in tonight no worries.

I had my drive shaft modified by Hardy Spicer in Brisbane. They have been around for decades and have always done a excellent job. They have a couple of shops in Brisbane and by their website www.hardyspicer.com.au , they have one in Townsville. They would be able to build your drive shaft.
