looking at your pic with the alternator its the plug and wiring that get close to the shaft, also had to relieve my plenum support a tadge for piece of mind

Its actually lower than it looks in the pic and the support isnt in place but should be ok
Thanks

I did move it over and forward from the position in the saturn plans so i can use the cables without having to change the length of them
Also i think it was just in an awkward position in those plans aswell

Your build looks great. The pictures of the wishbones are a great help. I am scratching my head about those at the moment and the Saturn plans I have are confusing me quite a bit. I hope that it will all become clear once I start making the jig and piecing parts together.
