New Products 3 Bowler Performance Transmission Mechanical Speedometer Cable Adapter for TREMEC

Mechanical Speedometer Cable Adapter for TREMEC

Bowler Performance Transmissions now offers a mechanical speedometer cable adapter for TREMEC transmissions. They include the T56 Magnum, TKS, TKO, and T5 that use a Ford-based mechanical speedometer drive and require an adapter or a custom speedometer cable to drive a traditional speedometer. This mechanical adapter is the easiest and most economical solution to connect your existing GM 7/8-inch threaded speedometer cable to the transmission.

The one-piece design incorporates a double O-ring seal for the transmission case opening, as well as an internal seal to prevent fluid from leaking through where the cable attaches, which is a common problem with other adapters on the market. The drive spindle is a solid steel Swiss machined part for extra strength and accuracy. This adapter has the option of 16- through 21-tooth driven gears to accommodate for a wide range of gear ratios and tire sizes. Made in America.

New Products 4 Koul Tools Surseat P51B Hard Line Flare Lapping Tool

Koul Tools’ Hard Line Flare Lapping Tool

Koul Tools offers the new Surseat P51B flare lapping tool, featuring improved usability and additional collets for metric sizes. The new shape and size of the tool make it easier to work in tight spaces and the lock-spring system secures the tube seamlessly in the tool’s cavity.

Another addition to the P51B is the easy-to-use clip mechanism for the interchangeable 37- and 45-degree lap heads. “On our previous model you had to attach the lap heads with set screws, which was a little annoying and time-consuming. The new clip-on system is quick and fail-proof,” founder Dick Raczuk adds.

The Surseat P51B removes irregularities in flared hard line tubing, leaving an ideal sealing surface. A precision 37- or 45-degree lap head coated with diamond dust literally polishes steel, stainless steel, and copper tubing to perfection.
