Great pics Shaggy! We all now know that the front shocks are Fox 2.0 x 7/8 Remote Reservoirs, one more item checked off the list. I am still having trouble locating the front pillow blocks at the tip of the two tire arms. They are painted gold in the pics and they seem to be the same as the ones on the Japanese build site where the panels are out of metal. One major characteristic that makes these differ from other pillow blocks is that the screws go though the entire length of the block instead of attaching by protruding tabs. Anyone have a clue on make and model?

I wonder if they are custom built for the car, since the were able to be seen outside of the cars body.   Ya' know?  like instead of just using any old pillow block, they wanted to keep the stealth look there as well.

i swear i have a good engine shot somewhere lying around, but i cant seem to find where i misplaced it.  Other than that, thats all i have, sorry.

On the note of the engine, best i can tell, its running center bolt heads, which in turn tells me the center bolts are not 90°, but around 76°.   A carborated intake is not designed to bolt up to this bolt patturn, it CAN be drilled to match those heads, but a throttle body intake was designed to match that bolt patturn.  Chances are, the tumbler is EFI.

i found some really awesome close ups of the car on flickr tho that i would be willing to share, they are extremely large images (like the batpod pictures found here), but they detail parts of the car rarely seen .

Yeah those pics off Flicker were tremendous help. Any Tumbler enthusiast should definitely have those. As for the pillow block, it could be custom made. Pillow blocks seems to be so popular though that it might have just been easier to buy a third party one. Now in thinking of that pillow block a problem popped in my head. In the scenario of the control arms and steering, when two shafts run parallel to each other where the same sides are fixed to separate pivot points, as the control arms move up and down the top shaft is going to either recess or extend the tip of the other. This in turn would affect the angel of the wheels. One way this could be avoided would be using one of those sliding axle shafts like the one in the drivetrain. It could be places right when the shaft comes out of wall where the control arms attached. Do you think that’s how the original Tumbler worked? Comments?

ok i had a good amount to post, but stupid pop-up blocker caused it to be erased before i could post it.

So simply put, yeah i do agree with you completley, even with a U-joint fixed right above the mounting point of the front fork, to the frame there would be flexing involved, so a telescoping shaft somewhere in that area would be a good idea
