let see how close i got the installe...i did remove the brake booster it was in the way of the oil filter mount  ( i cut that off.) to also clear the steeringbox.... the throttle to brake master cly is 5 mm,, the centre steering link to the the transmission belhousing   ( trimmed after this photo.. )3 mm to start, now 6 mm..so i got it spot on..so i cannot move the engine/ tranny fore or aft,,  the engine /tranny mounts are the same poly mounts
