    I'm also looking for someone in the SE to get 2 bell housings done. May get a better deal for the 3?

    I'm going to JW engineering in Bexleyheath tomorrow morning to pick up my prop shaft for the V8.

    May pop in and talk to them.

    I was going to ring them sometime in the next week, but if you can speak to someone face to face, that would be far better.
    And besides you know exactly what your talking about, me on the other hand! :rolleyes:

    OK. I'll take a S14 and a zed bell housing with me and explain what we want done.

    PS. I'm no expert as I've never done one before.

    Thanks Huw.

    My way of thinking is by supplying a bell housing with the correct hole sizes, they can machine to an exact measured size.

    Thanks for the offer but I think they should be able to see from the 2. I also had one that was already machined which I was going to use to get 2 more done. Unfortunately a friend needed one urgently so I had no choice than to let it go. I should be OK though.

    Tried to find Engineering solutions today and they are no longer at the listed address. Phone number doesn't work and website makes interesting reading. I'll try a local shop I have in mind.
