Back to the 37 GTM...
How do you get the engine out of it if you need to? Looks like you'd have to strip it down to the short-block and come out the bottom to me...
The entire motor/transaxle drops out the bottom as a unit, or you can pull teh transaxle out the trunk opening. I am using the transaxle adapter plate as a mid plate/mount also so the motor could be left bolted in with the transaxle out.
The body made pulling the whole thing out the top impossible.
I most certainly will. I'm on my 5th week recovering from knee surgery and still on crutches. It is killing me to be laid up, as I could get my new motor, new trans and freshly painted Healey together and back on the road in a weekend.
It may be a few more weeks yet, but you can bet that I'll be paying you a visit.

I just finally got around to getting the body blasted, so there was some minor/major repairs to be made still, I had really only tacked a lot of my mods together so I have been waiting for the freshly blasted metal to weld on.

Wow. I just stumbled across this thread. It is very, very cool. This clearly isn't your first rodeo, some mad skills here! Can't wait to see this thing come together!
