    I thought that is what you did. If not filling the trans would be hard. :)

    I was going to say I made the opening as small as possible too, then when I went to install the pro-5.0 I got later I had to 'massage' the opening, the billet base was bigger than the stock steel one.


    what is the gooey looking black stuff?

    Quake,

    Thanks for the thread as this answered alot of my questions.
    I'm doing this install in a 1970 442 clone as soon as I get all my parts lined up.
    Trans, shifter, slave and all that jazz just got here on Tuesday. Gonna be a 642 soon. :cool:

    I'm ordering the ATS bracket , and the $100 adaptor plate for a BOP motor.
    ATS just sold to a new company in Canada, so some options aren't up and
    running again yet. They sell some adjustable rod for the MC which I'm thinking
    is the samething you got for $20....maybe.

    But ALOT of great info in this thread and I'm subscribing to it so I can
    come back to it on the degree's and the hydraulics setup. Good deal my man. :bowtie:
    This info is invaluable to me.

    I might even buy a welder......and try my luck.

    You may want to check Quicktime Inc. They have some amazing quality stuff and it is SFI approved and comes with a block plate, etc. The bellhousing that I picked up from them is just outstanding quality. You can see pics of it in the link in my sig. They also went out their way to answer any questions that I had.

    RM-8072 Buick/Olds/Pontiac to LS1-T56 or Viper T56

    http://www.quicktimeinc.com/products.html

    It's down the page a little towards the bottom.

    I've checked Quicktime and their BH is $509 for a BOP T56 bolt up.
    McLeod's is almost $500.

    For $100 I can make the stock LS1 T56 bellhousing work and save $400 for now.
    I'm not going to the drag strip with the car or putting slicks on it, so it will be fine I'm sure.

    This is the $90 adapter for the Chevy bellhousing, the BOP is the same only $100

    They have the CNC drawings but none in stock since they just bought out ATS in Nov 2009.
    So I'm hoping they can make them still......

    Sell your LS1 bellhousing on Ebay. They regularly sell for around 200 bucks (mine sold for 210 not including the shipping). The Quicktime stuff can be found cheaper through other venders. I got mine for 410 bucks shipped. 100 bucks less than the QT site and with the 200 you get from selling yours you'll only need to spend 100 more.
