View Full Version : 68 classic plans

06-27-2010, 10:27 PM
Well, I just bought an interim pleasure boat, so the 68 i getting ripped apart soon. Deck recore, stringers?, lighten her up, and might as well do the bottom while I'm at it.
I need an alum bellhousing to replace the heavy cast piece. Is it a borg warner trans?
I will put engine and v-drive mounting rails in the piece. I think it looks cleaner. I will scrap the drive shaft with u joints and go with a solid/ rigid shaft.
I may put a dry sump system in it too.
Deck first, though. Then I can decide if I want to change shaft angle, etc.
I am looking for help with interior stuff.
I want this piece to look old school from a distance. But, new style seats, gauges (with a somewhat classic look), etc.
