Nice rework Will!. That will definitely make it easier to access the engine. Another really cool build.

Re: Removable Beam
What a slick idea!!!!
One of the things that I really like about the forum is that you can see solutions that others have come up with. It sets my mind at ease knowing that I can do the same if the need arises.
Nice work Will!

Great Idea! After it was too late, I thought of building the Tahoe as a utility with a drop in bridge over the engine. That way you could have both.

Well, I lost my motivation for a little while, but I have the fire back in my belly!!! I had to get some professional help (ha ha , no not that kind, just yet), mechanical help.... The fourth try at fitting the engine worked when you have experience in the shop!! I have to order some new longer angle for the rear mounts and then we will do the permanent install.

I have also started to work on the dash and the cover boards.

Sweet looking motor will. Hang in there, you getting close. Installation looks real clean.
