Frame all the way into floor. now for the drive train cradle this will carry the motor gearbox & transfer case & will be able to lift out as a complete unit once everything is unplugged

Asbled to check spacing's. the shifter handbrake transfercase lever's consist of a tarago shifter for gearbox the transfercase lever will be bolted up to tarago bracket the handbrake is hi ace


they will be housed in what was a tool box I have since cut it down in length so shifter is further back by 150mm.

This is the 12mm thick spacer & lift plate for the rear this is needed to space out the carrier to allow for the extra width of the diff & adapters by having 6 holes in it I can set it up at standard height or move the carrier down 1 hole to lift it by 80mm.

lift position

due to lack of space in engine bay I have to mount the alternator on the rear of the head with a 20mm round bar running to the front with the pulley on it then connected to the alternator with a rubber donut of steering column. the bearing carriers will be moved once the position is finalised

fitting off road tyre carrier towbar combination off a Holden rodeo about 1999 model it's neat fit up to chassis rails on the bus I just have to notch the top of the brackets to lift it up 40mm I modified it but not happy with it so changing it again

need to notch on top of brackets where they go under the rear panel & reinforce them

this is the bar now have to move the spindle over to clear the light. I was going to mount reversing lights in bar but don't like the idea so cut again

I had to spread the beam tubes to fit the rodeo spindles in the plates were jet watercut out of 12mm plate the tubes rotate inside so once it's all bolted together in the bus I can set the ride height & spot weld it the take it to get it welded by the tailshaft company for safety.

the steering is Daewoo power I'm using an astra electric power steering pump instead of trying to fit a belt driven 1
