A fan would work but there's not a lot of room. I've been looking for the airflow 3d mesh motorcycle seat material to make new covers out of

Ive been chasing a noise for a while now. I was thinking it was in my transmission because it was only noisy in 5th gear and would go away when putting into 4th. turns out my slip yoke is bent and has probably been bent since day one cause it's in the wrong direction of rotation. All that black dust next to the caps is what's left of the needle bearings.  After seeing how close it was to failure I added a driveshaft loop also.









Went back to the driveshaft shop that built it to get replacement u joints and they still have my mock up from 4 years ago hanging on their wall of shame. The owner thought it was funny that I had no idea how to measure for a driveshaft.

Getting fancy, decided to torture myself by transferring all the numbers into CAD to have the parts laser cut. It only took 10 hours but if everything fits it will be well worth it. It's getting made in 4 parts. The engine and tranny flanges are gonna be made from 3/8 and the cylinder and cone are gonna be made from flat 1/4" and rolled into shape. When it's all done ill fly cut both surfaces parallel.

Printed out the flange and found all the bolts have slightly shifted in cad. The measurements were all just ever so slightly off that it pulled the whole thing out of alignment. Trying one more time to get it all the measurements perfect. Bought a mock-up engine block, some giant 24" dial calipers, and have been trying to plot these damn holes. its a huge pain.

It’s  going to be so rewarding once you get it right because it looks like a pain in the ass to get there  🤪

What a pain this was to get everything measured just perfectly but it was so rewarding when it slipped straight into the dowels and everything lined up. Capital Metal Works did an amazing job with very accurate cuts and super fast turnaround time. Now I need to find a shop that can roll the spacer and cone. If anyone knows of a shop that can slip roll these let me know. They are 1/4 thick and 4" wide

All welded up and milled flat and parallel. I need to fit and adjust the hydraulic throw out and make a new tranny cross member, cut a new hole in the floor, make a new shifter and have a new driveshaft made.

More progress on my custom bell housing. It warped a little after being welded but it's still in spec. .0035" out of concentricity (max allowance is .005"). Set the depth for the hydraulic throw out and machined the heads of the new bolts for a nicer fit. Drilled the bell housing for the -3AN lines. Picked up a driveshaft yoke and measured for the new driveshaft. I'm hoping to be doing burn outs on New Year's.

bolts flat resting on edge of bellhousing, good way to keep them ever backing out.  :noel:
