One small step for man, one major hurdle to this build.
I just completed the CAD work for the adaptor that will be needed between the 722.6 trans bellhousing and the T56.
Took some doing but the initial CAD file is ready, I will have a test alloy plate cut to check final dimensions but at this stage all looks good.
There are other features to this adaptor that I have hidden as they are my IP and don't want them made available for the general public surfing the site, these are crucial points used in the alignment between the adaptor and the housing to ensure that the input shaft centre's are in absolute alignment.
The rear of the Benz bell will sit in the cut out of the adapter, both will be bolted to a universal plate that has the bolting points of both on it therefore aligning them, once bolted in place, the outer adaptor ring and bell will be alloy welded together, afterwards I will have the rear of the new adaptor plate machined as I have allowed 5mm additional material, this will ensure that both front and rear surfaces are uniform and square.
