I think it should be quite straight forward to bodge the block & box together once I have found a suitable flywheel and clutch.

It was only a quick 1/2 hours testing, but the initial results look good. The engine & box will sit nice and low and the drive flanges from the box are almost in line with the centre of the arches.
