Fortunately, before we got in too deep, the rest of the message from the aliens finally downloaded. Now it all makes sense.

Luckily the RHD position was exactly where we needed to be.

So the passenger has to operate the brake while you drive? It is a great idea. Only able to drive this vehicle with 2 people who are good at working together. Great solution for keeping a marriage together and making it stronger - especially if the wife is starting to feel left out with all the time and effort going into this (and other vehicles). Not sure if this was your intent but I like it. Very smart inclusive decision on a great build.:cool:

At least I think that is what the aliens were saying out in New Mexico, but I was trying to pick up the conversation from a thousand miles away with some home made antennas from old satelite dishes that I have been struggling to calibrate.

It is the carb head, though we could have used an EFI head as well. The power steering reservoir will have to be relocated. Probably the dipstick too.
That’s cool that either can be used. So I take it the displacement of both heads are similar enough that the same cams and valves can be used? This would be a cool engine swap.

I really like the 1FZ. It’s a good durable block with lots of potential.
