First, is it *really* a Type III engine (T3) or a Type IV engine (T4)? You say you got it out of a 411 which is a Type IV. It makes a difference! The T3 case (sans fan shroud and cooling tin) fit in a Type I, though the heat exchangers are different. Hell, with enough money anything will fit (which is what is keeping me from putting a gas turbine engine in MY baby >:) Though it does take a little work a T4 engine will fit in a T1 or a T3. What would I do with the engine and no chassis? Sell the engine or, like in the case of the '65 I currently have, fix it back up as a show piece. Or find an engineless body for it...
