I took a wideblock R 154 bellhousing I had built and cut it to the right length for the second gen T56 input shaft, I have been assured that all the T 56 input shafts will interchange, so I will build one housing for one sized shaft
This will be a direct bolt up, re-using all the original G54b clutch parts so there is nothing to buy but a disc
If you guys remember I built a T 56 adapter for the 2JZ from plans off the internet last year, well I went back and had a couple extra's made at the casting shop and re applied the same adapter on to the wideblock housing
I wanted to clean up the old housing because I couldnt use the same drafting tecnique I had used with the R 154, this casting will be created to 'break' in 4 directions instead of 2, this is the way the original T 56 should have been built
Ribs are sexy. something screamin eagle did without knowing it, he sent me a T 5 trans housing and I saw how it was ribbed and drafted and decided to build the T 56 the same way
I just keep adding and subtracting until I get the desired shape and style I am looking for
