I been runnin a 65 motor/tranny combo in a bone stock 57 frame with tin inner/outer primaries with an inch and a half belt set-up for over 30 years. Usin an after market bearing support, and cut the tin inner where the support interfered. Motor and tranny naturally lined up. Tin inner bolts to engine, uses stock hardeware to secure the rear to oil bag and frame. The nice thing bout runnin a belt other than the obvious advantages, is that once set-up, the belt doesn't stretch, therefore if you cut the inner for the bearing support, ya just trace around the support where ya want it, and the tranny doesn't move after that. This way you don't have to hack more out of the back of the inner primary for primary chain adjustment....bosheff
