    Jerry,

    Thanks for the update and info.
    Sounds like a great product.
    I second Transtar's request for pricing/ordering info since I will not be able to attend this IM.

    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
    JWI
