Here's another use for the old front rims yu remove and toss when building them racers. Many of the hubs have bearings in the and use the standard 1-3/8 o.d. bearings. So using a saws all cut thru the rim near the center weld as pictured below till it cuts the center hub off.



Here is the center of the wheel after cutting the hub off



here you see this center hub now welded in as used as a steering column bearing support.

that torque sheet will come in very handy if i ever start to build and engine with high pro parts or for a racing application.

Now that's being resourceful lol  Good idea using as many of your old parts as you can so you don't have to buy all new ones.  Saves money!!
Unfortunately for me, my wheels have bushings noplease

Heres a tip for anyone running a 700- tranny,  most of you  probably already know this,but for those that don't, The tranny bushing that George sells and talks about in his build is a vital component or you will probably end up with a destroyed tranny like this, oh by the way this is the result of a non points, run till you lose drag race, winner gets a hole hundred dollars (wow) it is not worth it,


THIS IS BEFORE THE DRAG RACE!!!!!


THIS IS AFTER TWO ROUNDS,NOT TO GOOD!!!

I mounted mine on a 5/16" plate. I'll have to check the size of the bit I used, but it was perfect. I lapped the trans case into the hole, then drilled the mounting holes. This setup has survived much drag race style abuse.

Oh yea that is a real tight fit and will probably hold up better than mine did, Sad I wasn't suggesting that George's bushing is the only way to go but it is very easy to install  Grin and it actually supports the tranny case all the way to the bottom of the case , it really makes for a strong support on the input shaft. but by all means anyone that is going to use this style tranny really needs to support the input shaft in some fashion, I think George said that these input shafts are only designed to take about 12 lbs of torque. woo

heres another tech tip
i learned this from racing quads
when performing a leakdown test, pour some oil down the plug, and re-do it
if compression goes up, its a ring job, if it stays the same, its a valve job
