Re: [DML] engine and transmission dimensions

     That's a given.  I am bringing them both bellhousings.  I've 
been in touch with Richard and Matt Cutter.  We're going to use the 
measurements as a check when we heliarc the two bellhousings 
together for a template.  Then we'll create a *.igs file so that I 
can have them CNC machined in quantity anywhere that can do 
     I am not too familiar with all of that, though.  I have heard 
that Sand Casting is much cheaper than CNC machining.  It is also 
strong enough to handle the torque forces.  I'll be honest, if I can 
save a $$ here and there it would be nice.  Richard said the heliarc 
weld on his bellhousing has withstood the torture just fine.  I rode 
with him in Memphis and he was by no means gentle on that car or the 
transmission.  The only problem there is that there are a limited 
supply of DeLorean bellhousings so I don't want to keep hacking them 
up.  Since my car puts out about 100HP and 100 lb.-ft. of torque 
LESS than the Northstar, I'm not terribly worried.

Thanks for the word of caution, though.
