    Got an afternoon in the garage!
    Fabricated the brace for the oil pump. All fits nicely.

    Fitted pan gasket and checked distance to bottom of oil pickup. Got just under 7 1/2". Camera angle makes it look closer to 7 1/4"

    Checked depth of oil pan 8". So around 1\2" clearance between pick up and bottom of oil pan. Perfect for the Ford BB.


    Tried on oil pan and it wouldn't sit down at the front of the block. It was the windage tray fouling the new pump brace!
    Re-bent the brace. Just got clearance for the crank weight.


    Still had to relieve the windage a little.


    Oil pan now sits flat.


    I cant actually go any further now until I get the bronze thrust plate sorted as I need to fit the timing chain cover before I can button up the bottom end.

    Input ports are almost big enough to get a fist in

    Now found out I need the head locating dowels for both sides. More little stuff to order.
    The spark plugs recommended for the head are Autolite AR3924s. Got a cost to import, 8.50 each!!!
    Got on the interweb and found an NGK equivalent (3737) at 18.00 for 8
