Nice! Are you making these for others (for a fee)? I'm getting close to starting this same project.

Ha Ha! Selling anything involves the IRS. You would need a business license, federal tax I.D., liability insurance, book keeper, accoutant, etc.

Then you'd have to collect state tax and send it in in a timely manner.

You would save money by building these and give them away under an assumed name.

Sorry, but being a small or hobby business is not for the faint of heart.

...or he could supply a parts listing that you would collect and mail to him. Then he would Tig them up and there would just be a fee for labor.

That's more along the lines of what I was thinking...  I have the trans and can do this myself, just wondered if since the jig was made the poster planned to offer services to others.

As to owning a business, I've owned a couple, small and not so small (my wife also), plusses and minuses just like anything else.

HA I would consider it after I get my JH back on the road. Maybe in a year or two. Actually it was easy to do. the jig is the secret. bolt down the case. Then put it on its side and cut it in half on a band saw at an angle. Unbolt lower section and bolt it to the threaded holes 1 " down. Splice in the pieces of Aluminum . There really isn't a part list I just used some aluminum.

I have also built a 14 ga stainless steel gas tank. That's sweet. It uses all the original parts off of old gas tank (sending unit, vent, drain plug) I'll never worry about rust again.

Easy-peasy!  Thanks for the tip.
