I am not 100% certain but I believe the Legends engine spins CW. Just a heads up to try and verify you don't end up with 5 reverse gears .

Actually, I have started on it. I've got the top chopped and the front clip shortened while waiting for the adapter.
This week I've been working on the rear engine compartment and modified the cradle to accept the longitudinal positioning of the SBC.
I've done something a little different in modifying the rear. Something I haven't seen here on Pennocks. Keeping my fingers crossed it's not a complete failure.
The adapter was a little pricey, but they make a top shelf product. It cost $2000 with pressure plate, clutch plate and starter.

one thing i must make is a air intake tube that go's from 6 inch oval to 3 1/2 inch round i think i know how to do this. one way is to take a 3.5 to 4.5 exhaust reducer and squashing the 5 inch side down so it ends up at 6 inches wide by about 3 inches tall

Are you trying to drive Low Z injectors with High Z drivers? Do you keep burning out injector drivers?

Hey Mark,
Sounds real good. Good to see you making progress. Can you get some pics of those cables? And where did you purchase them from?

Won't be any mosquitoes left alive in your garage after that! Hopefully the smoking does stop. Sounds great.
