Hi Mick. I'm running VN heads and got the 5260 from memory (bought them ages ago).  I had to flatten the steering cover bracket slightly to make a bit more clearance.  

 

My t400 dipstick just runs up the side of the trans and up at the rear (drivers side) of the engine. I've got a bit of room there because I'm running an electronic speedo.

 

From memory the Statesman with T400 ran the cooler lines over the trans and down the passenger side.  I can have a look if you like and see if I can get a pic off the Parts Catalogue. Cheers Ron

Couple pics of the steering uni’s
I hope the column doesn't push them closer to the pipes or I will have clearance problems.
Currently not too bad but again fitting to uni cover may be an issue.

While I’m posting
I’ll get back on the parts don’t fit bandwagon.
Rare Spares starer motor bolts are too long or the starter is too short, one of the two.
Nothing a couple washers won’t fix.
The knurl bottoms out in the block before the starter is tightened down.

Thanks for the info.
Ahh ye speedo Forgot about that there too and I also may need a vacuum line for trans kick down.
Mine isn’t manualised I’m told.
I’ll likely just run some AN lines and fitting for the trans so routing over the trans down passenger side shouldn’t be a big deal.

The trans dipstick I plan on drilling a couple holes through the lip on the firewall it seems to fit up nice at this point of time.

The engine dipstick is a flexible Aeroflow job I relocated it so it comes up at no3 spark plug.
Not as straight of a path as going to no5 But doesn’t look quite right at no5. The extractor runs closer to the block and looks to push on the braid more than I like.
It’s actually touching the pipes in both positions. The dipstick entry to the sump is awkward when heading to no5 spark plug.

Thanks for letting me know you drilled out the flex plate holes.
Although I didn’t think drilling em out was a going to be big deal.
Just kind of eases your mind somewhat when you hear someone else has already done it.


Yeh unfortunately I didn't think to check flex plate holes with bolts before I put it in the car and had to slighty drill one hole out while it was in the car. Was a pain to do as not much room but didn't need much. Lesson learnt.

I’m hearing you there. I’m doing things now that would have been a lot easier when the engine was out. And I had the engine and gearbox out bolted together for months.
What a dumba$$

I have drilled out the flexplate tonight
Used an 11mm step drill, but it’s not long enough as I can only drill out the converter bolts through the flex plate holes.
I don’t have an reduced shank drill bit to fit the small drill I’m using,

Flex plate cover modified and drilled and tapped the trans so it has 4!bolts holding it on.

Really annoys me when the pics rotate 90degrees.
Think it must be the way I take the picture.

Bingo
That was V2 it needed more clearance to get master cylinder lid off.
So v3 made today.
