They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

Got some dimensions- - - -OD of the Saginaw bearing retainer, and the ID of the bell housing bore? I can make one as soon as a part for my lathe arrives. It's out of commission right now.

if you are talking about a ring to space a 4.686 transmission into a bell housing with a 5.125 hole, Advance Adapters sells them. $30 on Summit's website.

I'd suggest drilling and tapping that ring for a couple of short cone-point set screws to secure it to either the bell housing or the bearing retainer. If it slips out and gets wedged between the throwout fork and the bell housing, things could get "interesting" in a hurry!

I used advanced adapters or novak-adapt. It fits tight so dont worry about it moving.
