Flaming river was not much help so I stopped working on my vette until tonight.

I bought a couple shims to raise the engine about 3/8", I mocked up the cradle with the rack and pinion to make sure I was ok on the clearance. So far so good, everything clears with about 1/4" to spare.

Hopefully I'll have time tomorrow to work on tightening everything up and installing the stearing linkage.

Got the FR R&P in and tighten up. Everything went in smooth. Have full turning radius and it's tight. I'm installing a serpentine drive system, electric fans, and I'll drive it to the shop to get an alignment done.

The FR instructions weren't very clear and I couldn't find anything on you tube that was up to date. With that being said, the steering is really smooth. It's an expensive system but hopefully it will be worth it.

Got any pictures?

Is the Flaming River setup power or manual?

The system I bought is a power system and yes I took a lot of pictures because there isn't much on the assembly. Is there an easy way to upload the photos?

At the top of the page you will see "image hosting". Then go to "upload an image". That will give you an code like:
