    I assume that if this will mount a TKO with a Chevy bolt pattern it will also mount a T5.
    Will a hydraulic throwout bearing be required for all installations or could a conventional fork and bearing (GM) be used? I ask because several people have told me that the hydraulic bearings have problems with leaks.
    You can add me to the interested list.

          I'd be interested in one.
          This any different than the McLeod unit that was tossed around earlier this year?

              I believe so Jeffy, this one according to the 3D drawing sent out by Jerry I is a casting as opposed to McCleods stamped steel design.

              I hope Red is enjoying his retirement.

                  Hello Everyone

                  The Bell Housing mated to a R1 289 within approximately .007 of center without additional work.

                  The Bell Housing is parallel within approximately .002 front to back.
                  The hydraulic throw-out bearing fits great.

                  The Bell Housing is made to work also with a standard Chevrolet fork.
                  Chevrolet has been using a hydraulic throw-out bearing since the late 80 along with Ford and others.

                  They work great and last a long time.
                  One of my associates just replaced one in a 1995 Ford truck after 150,000 miles.

                  This, however, does not mean you can not get a bad one. But it is far better than the stock Studebaker linkage in my opinion.

                  There will be a Bell Housing and throw-out bearing at the national
                  meet in Nebraska.

                  They can also take orders.

                  The bottom mounting holes are on the Bell Housing.

                  The Bell Housing is not a casting. In my opinion this Bell Housing looks far better than a Lakewood. This Bell Housing is made specially for the Studebaker motor.

                  It is my belief that the stock Studebaker linkage will not work with a TK0 500 unless modified.

                  I have put many hours into this Bell Housing. It is also the best Bell Housing that ever was mounted to a Studebaker 259-289 motor.

                  I sent a PDF drawing to all who had e-mailed me. If you did not get it, maybe some of the ones that did can forward it to you or comment on it. If not e-mail me requesting it and when I have time I will send it to you.

                  Thanks

                      Hi Again

                      I Left out so comments.

                      Many stock Studebaker Bell Housing when properly cleaned show cracks.
                      I blew a pressure plate in a C modified Chevrolet. This class of drag racing was about 10 pounds per cubic inch. It was at about 8800 RPMs some 30 years ago and I know the damage it can cause even at 3000 RPMs.

                      Many are also warped (not parallel or flat).

                      Thanks

                              Sounds like a great product.
