I put the rear piece from the Cummins NTC-400 with the trans cooler on the E9 transmission. closer view of the oil cooler and oil filters. this view shows the piece I removed from the Maxidyne engine from the DM800 and added to the bell housing for the starter. I also had to modify the part that goes on this side to move it forw

  7. Hey Jeff The 1/24 Renault 360 from Italeri showed up today. I got started on the E9 engine, it's a little bigger than the engine from the AMT DM800, but I believe it will fit, although pretty tight. I didn't get any pictures today but I will tomorrow. Ron G
