    Thanks Bill and Chris. The top center and the two lower holes that are just at the bottom of the screen have the captive nuts on the,

    I was wondering if the PO had a center console with a flip up lid. The five holes look suspiciously like a hinge bracket. Kind of like you would have on a shed door.

    Yes, the car had seatbelts in it. And only one hole even goes through the angle...

    Willy, the rail braces are made of very stiff steel, had to heat to bend to that shape, there is absolutely no give, you can pick up the whole assembly by the rail and not moved it a mm, there is really not a good way to pull down on the opposite side, spent a lot of time trying.

    As far as driving the supercharger, I agree, the only solution I can think of is another pulley on the crank,...

    Tom,

    If you care to crawl around the floor of my shop, there's one hiding there that popped off several years ago that I never found. <grin>

    Getting there George

    If I could make a constructive comment -----

    I can see the rail braces are nice and solid but ideally they might be better in a straight pull at roughly the same angle as the injectors, like up from the other side of the plenum ----maybe-!

    Also, I know you can't do much about it with the charger on that side of the engine but it would have been nice ...

    I agree with Frank in that the big holes look like a seat built hack job. But that leaves a mystery about what those little holes could be for.

    BTW those three holes the tunnel attaches to are supposed to have captive nuts in them.

    Thanks, had the thing rebuilt by RS but never got it on till now and notice the Needle is gone.

    I struggled to find one anywhere either side of the pond. The professionals won't sell components as they want the business. You might try Hugh Pite. Cheers

    Hi Jim. You have mail. I've successfully rebuilt a few late TD and TF pumps here using a washing machine seal (about $30 AUD) and a new shaft turned up in stainless 316. The other components are freely available. An inexpensive and satisfying project. As you have a lathe it's well within your capabilities. Cheers
