    In the same vein, I remember during WWII when rebuild parts were iffy, Lehman's, a well known local garage and machine shop, putting a Banger in a Lincoln V12,at the owners request.

    Happy New Year to all you fellows and may the Big Banger in the sky bless you in 2018
    A new banger in the works, OHV on a B block, T-5 with an enclosed driveline.
    It's going to have to wait until March, off on our annual trek to warmer weather....

    I cant wait to see this new project. Do you have the conversion for the T-5 to torque tube? There aren't many out there and I would be interested in getting another one for a future project. One that accepts a V8 torque tube would be good too.

    When I installed my T-5, the Jeep adapter was not available. Cost wise, the Jeep kit is a far better deal than the S-10 set up. Had they been available when I did my conversation, I would have paid $500 without a moments hesitation.

    I made one from 3/4" plate steel . not a hard thing to do . but yes I had a pattern to work off from my car . basically the center point is most important , then its just measuring correctly . my car is open drive shaft . yes the rear yoke is home made .
