Needed bell housing, etc. for BOP T5

Jim and I were discussing alternatives to get his B on the road. If he can acquire a few parts, he can get the MG going with a T5 in time for Lewisburg. He needs to pick up a bell housing that will work with his 340, plus flywheel, clutch kit, etc.

Any BOP bell from 65 on will work, but the best one is 75-80 231 Buick V6 H body, Monza, Skyhawk and Starfire. Origanally cable clutch so pivot is on other side like Ford. Mike Moor did a slave cylinder set up on his and Chris Gill uses a HTOB.

Dan I have a couple of the BOP bell housings. PM me for pictures or a price. They both came out of a mid 70s Monzaskyhawkstarfire. One might even have the lower sheetmetal cover, but then again I may be thinking of one of the 215 bell housings. There is also a V6 Camaro chevy pattern T5, but that may be spoken for. I also have a brand new T-50 thats been sitting in that unfinished home build 2 seat race car thing I picked up a couple of years ago. Been there since 1980 or so.

Unfortunately, I was unaware that this thread was here, or I would have tried the external slave setup. Instead, I had already set up a bid and bought a bell for $85(including shipping).

I think I've got about all the parts I need coming in now, aside from the driveshaft which will have to wait until the transmission is in the car,

Jim
