Hey Pep, all is coming along well. That column is darned excellent! If you have a pipe going into the trans sump you probably have a C9, which is kind of a heavy duty C4. looks like it is all going to work okay though! That ignition looks pretty neat too!

Good to see your up date Pep, Im using the same steering column (even the same colour).

Also I was wondering how well a reduction starter would fit, is the one you used fully adjustable? Or does it just have 3 or 4 positions to chose from?

You mentioned you had grind the block some how much? * I have a 302W

The starter looks a tad shorter than the stock one.

Spark, the mounting plate on the starter is held in by counter sunk allen head bolts. There is quite a few poistions that you can rotate to. They are spaced about 1/2" apart. As far as grinding the block it was just a casting mark about the size of a 20c piece and it didn't need a lot of grinding to get it down. The starter is about 1 1/2" shorter than stock and and 1' narrower. It makes life a lot easier not having to manouvre around the stock starter.

Yeah thanks Dave...C9?...I'm no expert so I'll take your word. I'll have to stick my head under the 34 and see what it has. It's a good box and I'll be happy if its the same. The ignition took a bit of buggerising around, making the retaining bracket. I can tell you, it will never come loose Also, since I'm right handed, it will be more practicle on that side.

I've had ADSL for about 6 weeks now Pep. Actually, if you must know, I've got a Windows 2003 Server running ISA Server. I've got VPNs setup to half a dozen different clients and then my good ol Win 98 PC hangs off that. I'll be upgrading to XP as soon as I find the time.

You're right though. As soon as I saw this post I thought I'd better go and check it out and make sure you resized the images.

Frank, I think you'll find that it is in fact the same as the Jag....3/4" 48 spline. It would be interesting to see if that is common to all XA/XB XC?columns. It would make work a lot easier for a lot of rodders.

Thanks Outback...I don't know if I'm motivating myself or someone else. Either way, both outcomes are fine.

Pep, the Jag spline is 57mm long,that site you have set up is a good motivator,it shows ongoing progress,which can encourage someone on their own build plan,and certainly is part of this site regarding methods and tips.There are many out there who are first time builders,those thinking of building,and those looking for that particular problem to overcome.............Frank.

Thanks Frank...building the car is my therapy...While I'm in my garage, I'm in a world of my own. Most non car people can't understand why I'm doing it. ..I can't seem to get them to understand that they may not see a lot of progress between visits but there has been plenty of thought and unseen work.
That Jag spline would fit niceley up the Falcon steering shaft.....I'll keep that in the memory banks as well.
