just curious as to how common this is at all?
will a standard tailshaft with different yolk fit?
can anyone with a custom or cast (ie. dellow) item please measure the total length (front to back) down the guts if you know what i mean...

im going to modify my BTR bellhousing to suit the bolt pattern of the glide, just want to make sure i get the correct length.

what converters are people using?
is there a possability of say using an input shaft and flex plate to suit a windsor as that would certainly be more common in the states than an AU engine...
or can i get away with using the converter from my BTR as im using the standard bellhousing?

yeah i know its been done lol
dellow sell a a bellhousing for the conversion.
looks like the BTR housing is 40mm too long in the back, so i cut it down.

ill have to ask my mate who built it what input shaft it has so i can get a hold of a converter to mockup and/or modif.
so just gotta get the details of the actual size of the dellow housing do i can modify the BTR housing properly.
