Ps Edit Note - no sweat, I also updated it with some new pics...Like these! I think they pretty much clear up the cross member questions - it's gotta go!:

Hope you feel better soon - drink plenty of fluids. Tequilla works, it won't cure the cold, but you really won't care!

Here's a few pictures of everything coming together. $60 bolted to C6 ready to go in, and the cutout tranny member with new member wating to go in.

Oh, you know...pretty slow going. I recently joined the unemployed of america, got laid off, so moneys been a little tight. Though I did come across another 48 f-1 about two months ago with what looks like a good 8ba flathead in it and a title for 500 bucks, so I may have the engine I've been looking for if it turns out to be good and not junk. I now have a title in my name, which is a huge relief! I haven't tore into the engine yet, still need to pull it out of the truck. It sure is nice to have another whole truck of parts when you're doing this kind of stuff! Let me know if you need help dropping that engine in...
Justin

Well after a trial fit today it looks like some more firewall modifications are in order. The engine touches the fire wall just about an inch to far foward. It sits low enough that just a little bit of cutting and reshaping may be needed, this will give me more room for the tranny mount farther back away from the brake booster too!I hate to do it, but I guess this is what hot rodding is all about!

Got the engine in a couple weeks ago and just got the tranny mount back from the welder today. Had to modify it a bit to avoid the brake booster. Getting closer! Had a few problems but all is good for now!

tranny crossmember

Looking good Steve. I'm doing some work on my tranny crossmember too. I decided I wasn't happy with the crankshaft/pinion angles I was getting - I need to raise the back of the tranny a few inches so I'm in the process of making a spacer etc? or maybe I'll just copy that nice looking thing you had built. That looks a lot better than my cobbled together stuff. Lookin good.

Tom

Thanks Tom. I actually bought the cross member from Classic performance parts, for 49 bucks, but it didn't work with the converted brake booster though, so I took it Shoemaker's welding in Penngrove and had them modify it to fit around the booster. Still cheap even with the mods.

tranny crossmember

Thanks for the info Steve, I may go that same route. I've got a pile of scrap metal around here and sometimes I can put something together, but your's looks better.

Got a bunch done to the engine today. I mounted the march performance alternator bracket, which relocated the alt. away from the bottom of the engine and the frame. I also worked on lots of little stuff, like sealing all the vacuum and water plugs in the intake, putting in the new sending units for temp and oil, putting inspection plate back on tranny, and working on replacing the u joint so I can get the drive line in. Lots of trips to Napa and Rex hardware today!

Looks good. You said you had to cut some of the fire wall to get the motor back. Can you show us how much and where you cut it. I plan on going with a 460 in my 51 f1 and any information I can get is helpful for when I do it. The only thing is my truck has a Volare front clip in it.
