I am in search of a bell housing and a flywheel for a rambler 327. I am building a 64 classic 2 door post for a street strip car. I refuse to use the 2nd gem AMC engine. I have some GM LS guys to prove a point to......
The car will be turbocharged. My 1993 cobra makes about 550 on 8lbs. I thing a 327 could make 600 easy. I want to make more but I need to start somewhere 
Thanks
Chris

I have a complete transmission (flash-o-matic) Borg Warner M-10, torque tube to 3.54 rearend out of a 65 marlin for sale.  Bell housing is aluminum and I have the flywheel attached to the torque converter in my storage garage.  I'm in Sandusky OH 44870 and would make a great deal on the whole package.  Mark 419-606-3600.

I'm sorry that I can't help you out with a bell housing, but I am completely with you on your quest. I believe that your power estimate is achievable.
I was going to build a '66 Marlin with a turbocharged 327, a turbo 400, and a 4-link rear-end.
Unfortunately, the Marlin was stolen without a trace...and then to add insult to injury, someone broke in while we were away, and completely cleaned me out (including the beautiful, never-used, Rajay turbo unit that I had for the project).
I would love to follow your progress.
Feel free to e-mail me.
Don't be afraid to stick to your guns.
Best of luck to you,

I would like to be in on some Gen One, with a turbo.  I have a 327 and no car or Jeep for it. Yet. Turboing The One is not unheard of. The crank seems really nice. The engine has some really nice features about it. I’m listening and thinking. 

Realizing that this is a parts wanted ad. But hey, it’s exciting.

G-man, that is horrible what happened to you. How are you recovering from the loss? What’s on your horizon?

J,
 
Having the Marlin stolen really hurt. I had always wanted one, I finally found one that I could afford...and then Whamo!
But, that was several years ago, and I had rather gotten over it.
Now, just a short time back...well, I still had the turbo, maybe one day I'd find a car to go with it...Boom! That's gone too.
The worst part about it is that we were gone from the house for a while, because a tree had fallen on the house, making it unliveable.
While at the same time I was sick from being treated for a rare life threatening type of cancer. 
But here's the clincher...we're back at the house, but we are not IN the house. The insurance has refused to pay to have the house rebuilt.
We are living in the backyard in a park trailer that I found, while we figure out what to do about the house.
Then...if you can believe this, I developed major stenosis of the spine (due to a previous spinal injury) that caused me to have spinal cord surgery down at UCLA, because in just about 2 months...I became basically a quadriplegic.
Post surgery I have regained most of my mobility...but it looks like working on cars is something I may not be able to do MYSELF again. ALL my tools got ripped off with the turbo unit anyway.
I am physically able to drive a stick shift again however, and I do hope to (with help) get back to my little IronDuke powered Spirit autocross project again.
But I am looking on the bright side...I am still alive.

g-man
