So these works of art finally got here this week. I’m dropping them off to my professional welder this weekend to get some -10An buns welded in. Also going to tidy up the fuel pump wiring. My new 3.55 Getrag is on its way to me so that’s exciting as well. If all goes well and the wife doesn’t task me with anything I don’t want to do. I’ll start on my 3.73 Getrag gear install.

You plan on running any baffling on the inside? Only reason I ask is I have the A2speed aluminum covers and they come with baffling and a provision for a built in oil separator on the passenger side and a fresh air port (forgot the thread size) on the driver side.

I wasn’t planning on it. These don’t appear to have any baffling that I saw. I’m just opening them up to help with crank case ventilation.

I strongly recommend running them into a sealed catch can that has valves for manifold vacuum and pre-compressor vacuum. Venting to atmosphere isn't ideal.

These are getting vented into a Mighty Mouse
Catch can. Thanks for the recommendation.

Hey DB, I thought you may be interrested in this. Seems like a nice upgrade for the Getrag.

Here’s the Passenger side this was a pita. I had to switch to different hardware then what Holley provides. The cap hex screws were too difficult to deal with.

I’m at the point now where I just have to install the wiring, diff, and purchase a new driveshaft(which will wait for a minute). Then I can attempt a first start and tuning.

I saw that thread McCloud and I have the updated clutches in my 3.55 gear setup. I also have a set for the 3.73’s I’m going to use I got from you. I will buy two more sets for the 3.92’s I have and the 4.29’s that are in the car now. This is a very good mod for those of us with Getrags no matter what gears you have.

I found a killer deal on a 6.4 so I was going to go ahead and get it now instead of next season... It was gone by the time I went to let my wife know... Sounds like you are finding deals all the time.

I’m done looking for them now. I just need to finish this thing up. Eventually one of the 2 BGE’s will be put in place of this 6.4. I’ll swap this one into my 63 Dart with a single GT45. It’s mostly for cruise ins with the wife and kids.

That's a good sign that you have the break-in oil inside there. That means Good things are coming! :)
