      Thought I would put a bit of paint on the 1/16 Big-block Chevy pieces and see how it comes together............no real prep on the printed pieces, though I did use a Scotchbrite pad (green) on the oil pan and valve covers, but just a little......otherwise, just primed and painted........good to remember here just how small these 1/16 scale parts are.......

    Don............GM type bellhousing is being test printed now..........the Muncie 4 speed is ready.............maybe need to adapt the Lenco?........additional intakes (Hilborn injected and Kinsler cross-ram, as well as the GMC blower set up, and then a twin-turbo config...) soon as well.............most of this stuff is real close.............

    Tony, if you're ciphering on adapting a Lenco, perhaps a NHRA approved "style" can to replace the GM bellhousing would be the way to go? Just a thought.

    tony, if you're going to do a clutch can, a more viable piece would be a can from either trick titanium,



    or a browell unit.

    tony, these cans come in escentailly 4 depths. 7 1/2" -8 1/8" - 8 5/8" which covers all door cars, pro stock and pro mod. there is a 9.40" can for the fuel and alcohol A little paint on the Big-Block Chevrolet...... funy car and dragster cars.

    the depth is a reference to the distance from the trans mounting face to the engine block mounting face.
