    Its a neat Bellhousing, but I did have huge issues with this one which delayed my project a few days.But Squeak has been real cool about it, he's away in NZ right now and offered to send me another one.I already had this one machined so he is offering to pick up the bill.I guess he forgot to trial fit it to an engine before he sold it to me.

    :D:) You'll be glad you made that choice too...Flatheads are neat lookin engines, but you cant compare the power and torque you get from even a stock Cadillac 331 much less a hopped up Caddy 390 and I think they can be just as good looking too.;)
