There should be some of Brian's in the Bfest pictures, unless you're specifically looking for a V6 one.

Found some pics of the stamped steel bracket one. Also iirc you can swap bearing mounts between the 2 shafts.

That aluminum housed one also uses a weak aluminum bracket to attach to the block. I have fount many of them are cracked.

Yes there is a bare shaft with a stamped steel bracket. I have found this on both berettas and j-bodies. It is better than the aluminum housing one but not as nice as that cast bracket. Mine failed on me once, but after some gussetts it seemed fine.

Perfect for leaving the gayrage, doing burnouts and then going back to the gayrage.

Just dont do right wheeler pealers with the wheel turned too far or the stamped bracket will pretzel and the bearing/axle slides apart. Some guy I know did that :roll:

This is one of the reasons mine has a fabricated steel bracket now...
