Re: [DML] engine and transmission dimensions

Agreed! - when you are "making things fit" like this, you are dealing 
in very tight tolerances - a few thousandths of an inch or less. I've 
rebuilt a couple of transmissions that were installed missing the 
alignment pins, and it's amazing the amount of damage a slight mis-
alignment can do. Including broken or severly worn input shafts. 

Make the machine shop responsible for making the part, and then re-
measure everything yourself before you put it together because even 
if they are "responsible" will they buy you another transmission if 
they are wrong and you don't catch it? Ultimatly the builder 
(aka "systems integrator") (you) is responsible. The only 
responsiblity that they will accept would be to correct the problem 
in the part they make. They are not likely to cover "consequential"
