Engine and box out, trans was leaking and it's the only part of the car I've not had apart. Engine had an oil leak that I'd failed to fully rectify in situ and then an aftermarket pan and crank scraper turned up at the right price so that was it. Crank scraper has to be trimmed to suit which takes a patient couple of hours. Finished it off with a late model one piece gasket and Milodon nuts and studs, hopefully it's leak free now. On to the trans Tomorrow....

Transmission in bits, this is a 999 which is a heavy duty 904. I'm putting in a reverse pattern manual valve body so bought some billet servos as I've seen the stock cast ones crack with the higher line pressure. The multi spring pack replaces the single large single return spring in the front drum which can lose tension at higher RPM.
