Default Re: Caveman tech - building a bellhousing for a flathead cadillac

Completely amazing work! Why the clutch arm though, instead of adapting a GM one to fit? Just wondering...........


Got my Tech week vote!

First thanks for the vote(s)!

Second, cause i didn't have a GM one!
I had the original caddy one but I misplaced it,
but it also didn't fit the muncie/saginaw throwout bearing anyway.


This is a version available online that I thought to copy,
uses a heim joint in that pivot slot.
I like the leverage adjustability, but too hi-tech for this caveman!
