Gee Don, if you'd had a shower set up the last time I saw you at Speed week then you must have had a dead cat up your shirt, I thought you just smelled as if you did. grin

James, I've gotta ask -- are we now privy to an Aussie phrase hitherto unknown in the civilised northern portion of the world?

"Dead cat up your shirt" -- what a fine turn of the phrase, and the visual I've got running through my head -- on the way out of it, by the way, is very nasty.

GREAT STUFF, gentlemen! cheers

James, no dead cat (they are too scratchy), it was a possum.   wink

Any pics of the new engine in the car??

You're funny

He wouldn't have thought of a possum, as they are a protected species in Australia

And that is why I was hiding it under my shirt.

It's totally logical if you think it thru.    rolleyes

But wait a minnit, Don,  If you were ostensibly trying to protect it -- wouldn't having it underneath your shirt and right next to your nekkid bare skin be a health hazard to it?  How the heck is that gonna protect any danged thing?

Please - tell, don't show, us.

OK we got the Lakewood and the Greek coupler from Don and Sid.

Good news is they'll save us nearly six inches. That is what we needed although it will also means the heads will definitely intercept the body line. The less good news is that there's a little more slop in in the output shaft fit up than we're comfortable with, our box has the same 27 spline shaft as the 10 bolt pinion, the Greek is Turbo 400 size...they weren't meant to be lovers......

I just checked out my stuff here for size & you're saying your trans is the same spline as the 10 bolt pinion so this is what I'd do if you're set on keeping your Holden trans. Assuming your yoke is steel & not cast iron, wack the end off it, take it to a machinist & get it splined on the outside to a tight fit in the Greek coupler & press it in.
The outside I can't advise on until I see what you have so show me some pics of your rear housing & shaft Mate.
