After several hours of making chips in the milling machine and lathe, it does fit. Now we have to make the real mounts, but it looks like it will work. We had to take 2″ of each Bell and we will fabricate Clamshell brackets so we can adjust pinion angle. The distance between the Coupler on the rearend and the transmission output shaft is all we have (approx 1″), even with all of the drive stuff and water pump off of the front of the OM606 engine. This means for sure an electric water pump and no belt drive on the front. If we want an alternator, we’ll have to drive it off of something else. Maybe a pulley on the Coupler…??
