you bet!
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

The welding on that looks awesome!  It looks pretty strong.  How much does your buggy weigh?  Party on Garth   b:1   :m

Not sure about the weight, but hopefully around 1300 lbs with the Subaru. But just a guess.

Back on the pipe again BrianN?

Looks totally insane.  I'm with the rest of the troops, Get a hold of the person you bought the engine from and let him know all the details that you explained to us.  Tell him to man up and help you to assemble it. 

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Yes, the pipe is a hard habit to break! But I am almost out of "argon"! Instead of messing around and dealing with the person I bought the motor from, I just bought a complete motor/trans (JDM) that is fully assembled. So at least I have all the bolts, brackets, fittings, lines, etc. And even though it isn't perfect, I have everything for "throttle by cable".

I just got done reading through this thread...  Brian, I don't think you'll break those rear bearing carriers under "normal" operation.  That said, I have personally broken an anvil, so anything is possible, but I think you have some solid looking weldments there.

I've never broken an anvil but I've damn sure screwed one up!
