Has anyone installed a T-5 kit from The Driven Man in an XK120 OTS, and if so, did you remove the engine ? On the TDM website, there is a video, and in it, the owner mentions that they have did an install on one 120 roadster without removing the engine by “loosening the mounts, and relocating the engine just enough to get in and grind the lip of the cross member”.
The TDM kit is very competitively priced, and comes recommended. I just want to know if I should be preparing to pull the engine at the same time. I know that is essential in FHCs & DHCs, but the wooden floor boards of the OTS, of course, extend all the way back to the battery box and I’ve pulled the tranny up through the cockpit several times without difficulty.
That video is at this link, and at the 4:00 minute marker is where it is discussed.
Thanks and say well, Knight
