There are a few fixes to do; changing the angle on various connecting parts to the radiator, moving the engine back, and altering the radiator so the brass fill does not really connect to the hood ornament. To get the engine to fit requires a pretty significant change. But I am going to get that quarter inch by doing several smaller changes to everything.
Rather than leave that part out, I ground off one side of it's base. Now it sits closer to the back of the radiator. I can pass up outside the body, and the radiator can still sit ever so slightly forward. I haven't seen this suggested anyplace else, but it buys a couple of millimeters.

But here we can see the scale of the thing. I'm going to need a bigger work surface.

The gearbox is a good example of where the Pocher "instructions" that come with the kit are wildly misleading.
After completing the engine and transmission, the diagrams show assembling the main chassis with the engine, but in the diagrams the steering gearbox, shown here on the side of the engine, is already in place. The diagrams covering assembly of the gearbox are a couple pages later along with assembling the firewall. But you can't wait that long. If you assemble the engine without the gearbox, with the main frame, the gearbox later won't fit and you have to take apart everything you just did.
