Okay it all looks good, leave the block saver on it is a good thing.
I see you bought the poly mounts, check to see if they are off center. Maybe there is a left or right and by switching the it will move the drivetrain forward. Did the tranny mount bolt right up???
And yes there should be 3/4 - 1 inch for play in the yolk.

If that does not work you must have the driveshaft shortened

Yeah I'd check mounts themselfs to original ones like Jpont said. You can tell in picture that plate is moving everything back a little, maybe as much as a 1/2.

Yes I put it in and played hard with it for 8 years. Seems like it went in then...maybe a little snug but can't really remember. I know I pulled it out last June without jacking it up when I pulled everything apart.

I would make sure the Trany is fully engaged into the clutch if there's away you can tell. If that's the case then shorting the drive shaft is the only solution. It's been a while sent you at last had it together.
I will put the clutch linkage in and try it. Going to put the headers on tonight...that is a job itself but if anything is out of place that will probably tell me.

Definitely not right now. But I will probably end up shortening it to that. Thanks.

I had the poly mounts off and checked them....more than once...but they seem to be good and match up good with the mounts I took off. Tranny bolts right up with everything centered. Everything looks right to me. Going to know when putting headers on tonight as there are spots cut out just right to make them clear everything...if they sit right engine is sitting where it is supposed to be. Thanks

Well slow going so far. Put first header on and everything fit right so far was putting second header on and figured before I get to far I better put clutch linkage together before it is too hard to get to. Then those problems started...tried clutch and was not working right, pulled tranny out and put it back together...turns out after resurfacing the flywheel needed to get a different length ball for the clutch fork...changed that out tonight and noticed several of the clutch linkage parts are worn severly...correcting all that now. Hopefully get tranny back in tomorrow night and then after I know everything else is good will get proper measurement for driveshaft. The fun the joy.....sure is fun driving when it runs tho

It never ends...dose it. Just when you think everything all set more problems.

Yep....40 years of not paying attention to some of the little things that can wear out.

Well have everything else pretty much done except for a little wiring, oil priming and radiator. Headers fit perfect so engine is right. Took driveshaft in to have shortened.

Looking at the pictures that sounds about right.

So when the car is sitting on the ground how much space would you say I should have from the back of the transmission housing to the yoke? Putting a tape measure there now I have 2 inches....thinking that is too much?
