Does anyone have the dimensions for the bulkhead bearing housing?

I want to make an ally one but don't really want to remove the old housing to measure it until it is time to replace it.

I'm sure I saw some drawings on here a while ago but the search isn't yielding the desired results.

Are you looking at making the bearing housing, I made a heavy duty one that uses the TVR bearing and would take the triangle column bush. I am away for the rest of the week but can take a measurement at the weekend for you.

I use a ring on the other side drilled and tapped M6 X 5 cap heads

I think there was one of the TVR car parts who did one, It came with the bearing and triangle bush, think it was 4 bolts but made in aluminium.

I'm guessing you know about those Paul but want the satisfaction of making one yourself?

I think I have an old plastic one somewhere I could take some measurements from, or send you it to measure yourself?

That's correct Mike. If yours is to hand would it be possible to take some measurements if it is not a pain. I just need the largest diameter at the moment as I need to order the metal stock. Many thanks.
