Isuzu 5 speed...again

PostPost by: Famous Frank » Sat Mar 16, 2019 4:43 am

Jerry, Richard,

My machinist is back from vacation. I took the one hour drive to see him this afternoon. We can fabricate the Isuzu Bellhousing Adapter Plate. Only difference is the price of aluminum has nearly doubled since I made my first one. So what else is new? I can provide you the adapter plate for $673. Nearly half of what I spent initially. I'm having another manufactured for myself. I have one Isuzu trans from an I-Pup Pickup I got at a local Pull-A-Part that I would like to use in my 67 Coupe in the future.

Let me know if you would like one. I would like to know before the end of the month.

As for the speedo cable, in the future I'm going to use an electrical speedo with the stock original face that operates via GPS.

All the best, Frank
