Man, it sure is nice to have a workshop that has all the tools that you need. I would have had to send things out to multiple people for machining and welding. Nice work saving that bell housing Craig.

Nice job Craig.

So many times the solution to a problem isn't immediately obvious. Sleeping on it and with your subconscious working on it, it's quite amazing how often we can come up with novel and satisfying solutions when we had thought that the problems were insurmountable.

Cheers!

Thanks, yes it does help to have the tools available to tackle these types of jobs.

Glen
It's funny I find myself thinking way to much about this stuff late at night / early mornings.

Great job on restoring those SW240A fuel pumps Craig. Love the look of those old pumps.

Why. Because we can! As you may know from some old posts of mine, I took two old SW240A pumps, gutted them, bored them out, and put two modern in-line electric fuel pumps inside.

Restored them to look period correct.



Had fun doing it and they work just fine.

Cheers
Greg

Thanks Greg.
I do remember your post about your fuel pumps.
As you know it takes a lot to refurbish these things.
I just got a few more in to do as well.

Now back to the lower cover, cut out some more shapes with the plasma cutter, lots of grinding then some bending, then some welding and we came up with this.

Looks like it might just work.

I will set the bellhousing up on an engine and check everything and if it passes the test it will go to the powder coaters.

Anybody out there have a 5 bolt block plate they can part with?

Looks like it came out real good. Narrow bolt pattern T10's had a smaller front bearing retainer pre 65. 65 and later T10 had a bigger front bearing retainer and the 2 bolt patterns. At one time I had a scattershield for a 5 bolt engine that had both wide and narrow trans bolt patterns also had a ring so both bearing retainers would work.

thanks, I think it turned out nice, always good to be able to save an old part and put it back into service.

We need a few sets of rear brake ducts for our 427 cars,
decided to make them out of aluminum.
Ready for powder coating.

Craig,

They look great. Are you planning on adding any ducting to either the front or rear brake cooling ducts, or will you be using them just for some directional airflow?

Jim

Had a request for some 289 lower control arms.
These ones will have rod ends on the pickup points so they will be adjustable.
Big thanks to Jeff G for a couple measurements.
Ready for powder coating.

Finished up my pet bellhousing project.
Picked up a block plate off flebay, filled the two lower corners, next up powder coating.
