Cobba,  Excuse my ignorance but what are the plates on your cross members for?

Hi mate, it was suggested to add them for added strength. Being a bit short and with the thumping of the engine it might decide to mis-behave and split. If nothing else, it looks tough and adds a heap of weight to the project.
I read somewhere late today that this SE engine weighs around 400kgs and explains why when I had both in the box trailer as to why the springs flattened out, it'sonly rated to 750kgs.

Grandkids know it all and you have to smile with their logic and words.
Cheers Max, now to one of the big heavy lumps onto it. I think I know which one is to be ressurected and which will become the donour.

It has been mentioned that I mount the heavy end over the rear axle to make the steering lightish. SO my silly dopey question which end is the heaviest on these 400kg deep sea anchors? Is it the flywheel end or the cylinder end with the head and all that injector assembly and fuel tank?
