wow I'm getting alot more responses over here.Thats a good idea & leave out those cavitys between the studs, make them solid.
I was already planning on allowing the extra room, since you can still run a stock cylinder on cases that have been machined, and that way it would save people time and money.
And i'm planning on doing alot of reverse engineering. I'm also very profficient in 3-d programs (i.e. solidworks, CAD, etc) i'm a 4th year mechanical engineering student. Rich over on one of the other forums also brought up the idea of modifying the right case and clutch cover to allow the use of a 88-91 CR topend and power valve, which i think has potential i just have to see if its feasible with the room allowed.
Beobe already brought up the idea of oversees casting which i think would be a better alternative due to cost. This would allow me to get the price down. I need to get a general design that way i can send out the model for price quotes. I need to figure out what kind of volume minimum casting companies have. I don't have an unlimited amount of cash up front.
For all of you guys that volunteered cases i really appreciate it. I need a right and a left, so if you are interested in volunteering them, please PM. I'll get you my address and contact information. I will probably need the cases for about a week, maybe two. So if you have time constraints on there use please let me know.
Once again thanks for all of your input.
