Hi Scot,

Not yet. I talked to G-Force earlier this week and they were waiting on Tremec to ship them some of the 3 cone synchros. They said it will ship early next week. They did send me the Lakewood scattershield that I ordered. It has been modified to work with the T-56. I also got my clutch setup from Advanced Clutches. Looks like a very nice piece. I'm supposed to take my chassis to the paint shop next week so they can set the body on the car. Shouldn't be too much longer and I can start on the fabrication work for the tranny and finish putting the rest of the car back together.

Sounds good-please keep us updated. I know I will be following pretty close as I have been thinking about purchasing a G-101, but would rather have the 6 speed.

Will do, Scot. Below are a few pics of the housing and the new clutch assembly. The clutch lining is .360" thick, so it should last a pretty good while. The plate has 500lbs of base pressure and is adjustable to 1,600lbs.

Oooohhhh, look at that nice stuff!
Ken, where is the hole in the bellhousing for adjusting the clutch?
They didn't drill/machine the bellhousing for clutch adjustment depiste me requesting them to do so :sad: I will have to do it myself when the transmission arrives. Honestly, I havent' been that impressed with G-Force's customer service thus far. I'm hoping the service after the sale is better.

Well, at least you know it will be in the right location for adjustment.:D
Don't forget about the bottom hole for airgap also.
What the heck are you building down there anyway?? A turbo 540??

customer service was great for me,but that was for a g-101,delivered in 3 weeks as promised,everything on this trans is built in-house.

the hole in the bellhosing depends on the shape of the trans case,most of the time you end up at 3 o'clock ,but with an odd shaped case you may have to drill the hole in a slightly different location.i'm guessing thats why the hole wasn't drilled,i drill a 1/2" hole,and use a ---BALL END ---allen wrench,chop the short end off[throw away],and tack weld the long straight section to the proper sized socket and your good to go,i like to use a 1/4 drive ratchet.just mark your harmonic balancer numbers 1 thru 6 at the proper locations.

at the track i drive the car up on ramps and chock the rear wheels of coarse,it only takes a few minutes for clutch adjustments,i've actually done it without the ramps a few times in the staging lanes,depends on how low the car sits,and i'm fairly skinny.
