    This is for anyone that's got some fabricating abilities, and wants to adapt a SHO engine to whatever.

    I've got CAD drawings of the SHO bellhousing and flywheel patterns.
    I think the flywheel pattern has been posted freely, but I'll include it here anyway for the sake of completeness.

    The deal is, $175 and the drawings are released publicly, for anyone to use. I'm not a big believer in keeping secrets. The only reason I'm charging anything is to raise money for SHOForum and to offset the cost of what I paid for them in the first place.

    $100 will go to SHOForum, the rest is for me. I paid $125 for the drawings, and am only getting $75 back, I don't think that's greedy.


    I will also throw in some other things I've found on the web, such as a T5 mounting face pattern, and a SBC bellhousing pattern.What you do with the drawings is up to you. I want to see more swaps and interesting things done with these engines.

    My one request is that if you use these drawings to make adapter plates to sell, not just for personal use, I'd really appreciate it if you threw a nice donation towards SHOForum. If you're going to be making a profit off the plates it's not too much to ask that SHOForum sees a small part of that.

    Any donation over $2 is welcome.
    Less than $2 and the fees start to really take a big chunk out of it.
    $5 and up would be great, but if you just want to chip in $2, that's fine.

    I'll keep a tally here, when it reaches $175 the drawings will be released. If it falls through, your money will be returned. I hope it doesn't come to that though.

    Current money raised: $175 / $175

    Huge thanks to all those who donate! I'm not going to list the amounts because this isn't a contest, everyone who donates is doing SHOForum and the community a favor, no matter the size of the donation. If for whatever reason you don't want to be listed, just let me know.

    I don't think I'll use it right now but I don't mind helping out either. Here's your first donation, and if you don't make your goal, I don't want the money back, give it to the FORUM in my name.

    Good luck. If I had more time I would take on such a project; I've always wanted to get involved in casting aluminum parts.

    I did not realize that there were fees involved, I updated the original post with an email address. Sorry about that.

    normally paypal takes a cut, but if you're seeing the full amount that people are sending you then you should be fine.

    Yes, that was me.

    I think donations don't have fees attached to them for PayPal. Just goods and services.

    Now that i think about it, i cant - for the life of me - remember if i found a T56 bolt pattern for this, or if i just did a quicky freehand layout in cad.

    the T56 pattern may be worthless beyond "rough draft" status
