The "hack jobbers" don't do this.....

What suffix is the gearbox? If less than "F" plan for it to not last a long time.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by this or where exactly the countersunk bolts would go. I see that little kit with the drill/tap/countersink is on that guy's site.

Here are pictures of my bell housing and flywheel housing:





Another new question: My flywheel has marks at approximately 9 3/8" across. The new clutch on Rovah Farm says it's 9 1/2" diameter. Are these the same?

OH! Another question: If you look at the picture of my engine bay you can see the heater cable hanging down. Is that the way that's supposed to be?? It seems like it's 2' too long.

No it is not supposed to be that long.

See the 4 holes at the bottom of the flywheel housing? Are they full of bolt or air? If the latter, then they need to be filled with bolt.

I'll look closer, but it appears to be air. There were two bolts through the transmission, which I think leaves 5 holes.

What's the purpose of these added bolts? Just extra rigidity?
