Pressing on

My advice to anyone thinking of re-shaping a late model trans is don't :D !!! So far we have well over 30 meters of filler rod and hours of TIG time. And it's relentless, as you weld one area so the heat drives out gas and impurities elsewhere in the cases.

But I think we got it, so now it's flipped over and in the shot is the next piece of welding to do. This ally tube will run the clutch hose and rear brake hose, keeping everything clean. Once this is done I'm on the home straight with the trans! Just got to make the covers and machine the finished finish !

Rocket Bobs Rocker Covers

Hot off the CNC Milling Machine after twelve hours under the knife are these stunning billet rocker covers honed from solid 7075 T6 aluminium, which are a direct replacement for the Twin Cam oem upper and lower covers. Shallower than the stock items, these allow the use of stroker
motors in stock frames with fewer clearance issues, but have been designed to tidy up your top end, blanking the plug side bolt mounts for a cleaner look.

Precision-machined from a far more stable material, and with the upper cover located by a hidden O-ring for a seamless appearance, the Rocket Covers' (channel) traversing the head conjures up images of reworked shovelhead rockers without cynically attempting to reproduce those lines, lending a new aesthetic to any Twin Cam motor as well as improving the material quality of your top end: 7075 does not oxidise or tarnish, promotes world peace and looks great in a swimsuit.

The Rocker Cover Kit includes all gaskets, bolts and new breather valves - in fact everything you need for a speedy bolt-on conversion, to transform your Fat Head into a Rocket Head.
