Maybe get a third van and weld it on backwards at the far end? that would give you room for a flux capacitor ....forget the welding accordion bus is now popping into my head :)

With any luck the engine will be hanging by tomorrow afternoon. Believe it or not the new engine, tranny and transfer case is shorter than the stock deli setup. Pix to come. Custom front leaf springs have arrived and new ring gears for the front pumpkin are awaiting installation. Still trying to source a new bigger rad, any ideas??

When I had my rad looked at by a rad shop, the guy couldn't believe the capacity of the thing for a four cylinder; he said it had the cooling capacity normally found with a big-block V-8. I think that's why our temp gauges rarely rise above 1/4.
