An empty trans case and dummy Flathead block and Ardun heads were used for set up, though this is the trans case that will be built up for the Merc. A Wilcap adapter was used to mate the old-school engine to the modern overdrive trans. Note also that in order to clear the top of the doghouse, the surplus-to-requirements mounting lugs (arrows) at the top of the bellhousing were removed. These areas will be dressed before the trans goes for rebuilding.
