Thanks for the reply. This is not for the Minor's engine, this is for my Yank V8 monster. No one holds an exchange crank for a Chrysler 5.2 Small Block. :roll: :lol:

Hi Pete, How difficult is a full chassis to do? I have never done one before, I usually use what I already have. I was planning to use the minor chassis for suspension mounts and the porsche chassis for the drivetrain mounts.

I am actually gong to use both Porsche and the Minor Chassis so it actually has two. I need the minor chassis for the suspension mounts and the porsche chassis fot the engine and transmission mounts. they fit together quite nicely.

Where to get Chassis sections from?

I discovered that most of my chassis is like swiss cheese on saturday. :roll: Where would be the best place to get new chassis setions from or would it be best to get them fabricated?

Hi John, I think you'd be better off restoring both cars, then you'd have two very nice classics to use and enjoy rather than one modified car that would be rather less than the sum of the parts. Both are superbly engineered and designed cars, both sadly rather underrated, Enjoy them both! The Porsc...

Nah. :P Don't get me wrong the Porsche was a quick and well built car, but just too darn small (knees touched the steering wheel with the seat bach as far as it will go) and the body parts for it are too expensive (front wing £200 I kid you not). And I figured, why not take the motor from a quick bu...

The engine does go infront of the gear box. The gearbox is about the same size most RWD gearbox's, with the diff at the bottom of the box about half way down the length. Due to the engine being very long for a inline 4 cylinder unit, if you bolt the engine directly to the gearbox, the front of it co...

Cheers for that Pete, interesting stuff. dp, thats a superb idea. If the engine goes up front I will have to move the bulkhead and re-work the steering. But what your suggesting could be much easier than it sounds. The gearbox in a 924 is the same at the on in a VW LT van, it just has an added gear ...

Hi Pete, The engin I have is producing 150bhp from its own steam and will be putting Nitrous on it too, probably a 75bhp shot. Weight at the rear shouldnt be a problem as the Porsche transmission is in the rear axle which should balance the car out nicely. I have already thrown the mouldy old carpet...

Weight reduction.

Hi folks, I hav inherited the Minor from Mrs E as she is now 15 weeks pregnant (woohoo) and Norm is no longer a practical option for her. As I am now having the car I plan to strip as much unessecary weight out as I possibly can as when I have the Porsche 924 motor and gearbox fitted I have every in...
