Did your lokar shifter come with the back up switch or did you order separate? That is the last thing I have to hook up. I assume that is what you have mounted down on the pan.

Yes, that is a back- up switch mounted to the pan.
No, The back-up switch did not come with the shifter, I found that separate on E-bay for $25.00 from Jegs performance. But, the neutral safety switch did.
Just a heads up on the back-up switch- If you are using it on a 4L60E, I had to bend the bracket out away from the tranny a bit to get the switch to come in contact with the arm.

Thanks, with building such a beast. Those were a few things that were important to know the thing would steer and be Abel to stop.
All out in the name of Safety.

Awesome build. What kind of motor mounts are you using? They look like the MORE mounts. I read through the entire post but didn't see the brand. Did you have any problems with the front driveshaft clearing the tranny pan? Looking to get my engine set in sometime soon. Keep up the awesome work.

Yes, M.O.R.E mounts for a SBC with LS Adapter plates found on E-bay.
I have not dealt with the front drive shaft yet. I know the problem comes from the U-joint being to close to the pan. I did cut the lip off the tranny pan where the u- joint would sit. Another thing to consider is the Tranny to Transfer case adapter. I know the Adapter offered by Advance Adapters is a little longer than the Novak one. This may aid in a little more room. Especially if using the D300.
Last option is to go with a Atlas II Transfer case as this case will give you another 1" farther out away from the tranny pan than the D300.
These are things I've considered. I have to decide if I want to pull apart my D300 and put the new input shaft in with all sorts of upgrades or go with the atlas II. I'm leaning towards the atlas for now because I know it will give me more room for the shaft. And by the time I built the D300 up, I could almost have the Atlas and piece of mind knowing it should give me the room needed.
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any more questions.

Did the MORE Mounts work out pretty good for you? Do you like the position that the MORE Mounts end up giving for your engine? I have been looking at theirs and the ones from Advance Adapters. I like that the MORE Mounts are bolt in and then can be welded after everything is done. From your pictures it looks like the MORE Mounts give you plenty of clearance for the steering shaft. I have a D300 that I rebuilt a while ago that I was planning on using but may have to look into other options if the driveshaft gives me problems.

Yes, they gave good firewall clearance and offset the engine about 5/8" to the drivers side. I too, liked the fact I could bolt them in and then weld after I knew the placement was right.

I think you should go with the atlas t-case
I'm in a similar situation, not as powerful an engine of course. I agree about spending money on upgrading the d300, seems like the atlas would about be paid for!
