  • Tapered reamer and pin source- bellshousing

    It's time to align the bellhousing on the Black Bart Special, it's anew bellhousing to this block.

    I lent my tapered reamer out a few years ago, and of course, never got it back.

    What is a good source for the reamer and pins with the same amount of taper?

      Well given my luck on loaning tools, I figured everyone else felt teh same way and quit lending tools.

      I'll give you a buzz...

        Why tapered?
        Do like the rest (big three) do, just open the trans./bell housing a coupla thousands.
        A straight reamer and straight dowels will be MUCH easier to find.

          Because that's the way I was instructed, and don't know any different.

          What's the advantage to tapered? I ASSume there must be.

            Here's a pic of the 4A reamer for the alignment bolts:



            It's a pretty small thing for the prices that are charged for these.

            Here's the Grizzly 7 pc adjustable set for $43.95. A lifetime supply of all sizes!

              I just drill out the 5/16 holes to 23/64 then ream them with a 3/8 straight reamer, knock in roll pins and go with it.
              No need for tapered pins. Furthermore tapered pins would simply make a nightmare for the next mechanic. How would he know they are tapered and even if he did which way would he drive them out? Access is very restricted to hit the pins with a hammer and punch.
