0) The engine has been at the machine shop for over 7 weeks. No word on when it will be ready to be picked up.

1) The transmission comes as a kit specifically for my car, but it's also specifically for the original engine in the car. Because of this, I had to get a different bellhousing. The kit's bellhousing is 15/16 inch taller than the housing that I have to use, so I had to have a spacer made to go between the housing and the transmission. I was expecting $350 - it wound up costing $658 (because the CAD work was problematic). The silver lining here is that if anyone dares travel the road I'm on right now, I can have a spacer made for them because I have the CAD file. I should have the spacer by Friday.

2) I have all of the other parts necessary for the swap except the A/C compressor (which can be bought any time and won't hold up the swap).

3) I found some really nice highly-polished stainless steel "427" emblems for the fenders.

4) If the hood doesn't fit after the swap, I have a plan. Hopefully, it won't cost any money, but - well - we all know how that tends to turn out...

I have determined a need for software - a method for calculating the length of a serpentine fan belt, taking into consideration all of the pullies and tensioners used for the given belt. For instance, I'll have four pullies and one tensioner. If I know the distance between and size of the pullies, and the desired deflection imposed by tensioner, I should be able to determine the required length of the belt with reasonable accuracy. The shop I'm having this swap done has a wall of hooks with about 400 fan belts on it, with no organization regarding length. They've spent hours combing through those belts looking for "something that will work". If I could write some software for them, it would shave a lot of time from that process.

I was hoping to start the swap last week, but the engine is holding me up.
