Congrats on the purchase Colin, Looking forward to seeing the progress on this.
You mentioned having to run a distributor.. that torque reaction mount looks like an ideal place to mount the dizzy parallel with the crank with a small belt off the front of the cam 😉
Would give good access in-situ as well!

Hi Colin
Looks like a very interesting project, facing several challenges along the way, such as incorporating distributor, gear selection and engine mounts, smaller alternator, exhaust and intake systems. Can't wait to see the end result, incorporating the busso v6 engine plant, with the expected performance being out of this world. Is your plan strictly to only rally the car or are you planning to have it road registered as well?

Yea it's a rally car, so needs to be have registration, but don't think it'll be too much of a daily driver!

Not the only person doing this in AU....  Not sure if it ever had a Lancia engine in it.
