So after enduring 2 earthquakes and having to fix my workshop twice I have finally made some progress.

I had the bellhousing pattern machined after I did the CAD drawing and afetr some minor adjustments I got it right.

Then off to the foundry to cast the 1st item. This took about 10 days and then I took it for the CnC machining at a mates place.

The final item looked great and fitted perfectly.

I then fit the motor into a frame and I was happy with the result.

I have some more work to do but in principle it will work and now I can concerntrate on building the car.

I have few other projects on the go as I am restoring 2 vintage race cars so progress will be a bit slow but I have to pay the bills first.

Here are some pictures.

What are the W & T Toyota trannies out of? How do they hold up?
W series come out of mostly toyota 2wd pickups aka hilux
w-40
w-50
w-55
w-57
w-58
w-59

T series come out of mostly toyota corolla models
t-40 4spd
t-50 5spd

there are some readily available trans plates
that allow you to do a "W" or "T" to R-series trans as well.
R-154
R-151
