Starting to look like an explorer engine now. One more test fit, connect tranny and np205. New cowl hood in a couple of weeks. Lots more to do, but the engine is looking good.

Enjoy

A closer look at the opening and bracket. All cooling radiators now fit under the top rail. Allows flexibility on engine mounting.

The mounting brackets. Added a spacer to allow a little more clearance.
