      It is not my intent to start this "New" project right away,(I have as of yet to put two Model A parts together) but in collecting references I noticed a detail I thought I should share.

      I do not know if this is unique or if it is a feature common to all the 8C engine blocks? -The hollow access on the underside of the motor mounts that extend to the chassis rails?

    Here is another useful view of the engine block. Dimensions can be figured out proportionally.

    Thanks to JSW!

    Whenever I find something new, I post it. If its a new view to me it is probably new to someone else?

    It would have saved me an awful lot of time if I'd had those views - especially in the areas of the steering box relief,throtttle linkage and dynamo support.... next time I can get them right! Thanks for posting.

    ​The pedal assembly does look a lot more complicated than I expected!

    I think that's because it's right hand throttle, not center as they originally were- hence all the dog- legs to swap the linkage over

    Only a few people get to see this view. Notice the steering box mounts and the contoured area between.
