Re: 8BA clutch size

I am in process of doing a complete rebuild of the T5. It was going into another project but decided to use it on this. It is all new 300 hp gears and a new chevy tail housing to move shifter forward.

The frame is off a 38 1/2 ton truck. I bough some other parts off it before it was completely apart.

Re: Chassis question

Zeke3, thanks that is what I was looking for. On the frame I located there is a cut through the center of the 2 forward holes. That can be redone or find a original piece and replace.

Re: Fresh rebuilt 8BA Flathead

Yes, the block was modified to pass the oil out through a filter and then back in. this will be mounted elsewhere once installed in the truck. It was just there to transport.

Re: Fresh rebuilt 8BA Flathead

I discussed what I wanted with the engine builder and he speced out the parts. I relied on his years of experience building flatheads.

Re: Fresh rebuilt 8BA Flathead

Thanks, I like it as it does not damage as a chain might. I purchased from Jerry Bickel Race Cars Inc for $139 +shipping.
