    They quit production of Halon 25 years ago, so not realistic!

    Thanks, neat idea, but I have the money to build the car. I'd rather pay for it all myself.

    Got the rear end housing machined, and blasted it, and cut off the ends (hopefully in the right place). I bored out the hole in the brackets to fit the 3-1/8" tubes. Got a transmission core taken apart, for mock up use. It's been about 15 years since I was last in a 727, but I remember how they work now.

    Some assembly required.

    The milk crate is the perfect height. I can look straight through the transmission, and the hole lines up perfectly with the hole in the rear end housing!

    Crate trans only works with a crate motor correct? Too bad it's the wrong color to be the orange crate special...

    yeah, I suppose. I ordered a few more parts this morning. Been pretty busy with a couple other things lately, too.
