Hi Guys,

First of all, I'd like to say I LOVE the forum and the tons of information on the site. Helps me an alot to maintain the Bird.
Two thumbs up:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

But now my dilemma......
Next month I wanna do the J-mod to my tranny and the tranny of Dutch T-Bird. I have all the parts we need (updated accumulators, springs, gaskets etc. etc.) but it 's impossible to find the right drill bits needed for the job:mad: :mad:
Don't forget, this is Europe. We live in the land of the metric system.
Drill bits in English or US sizes are a big no no to buy overhere, so what to do:confused:
I tried to convert the bit sizes to metric, but that gives me the most rediculous sizes you've ever heard of....
Example:
0.160" is 4.064mm
0.076" is 1.930mm
and so on....GRRRRRR!!!
What I can find are metric drill bits almost as close to the specs needed. The 1.930mm would be a 1.9mm drill bit, the 4.064 would be 4mm etc, etc, etc.
OK, here's the BIG question... can I do the J-mod with the drill bits I can purchase or am I messing up things if I do that:rolleyes:
Is there anybody out there who can help me out:D Any help would be appriciated.

Thanks to Y'all

Ed........

What power setting are you going for??
I have the 4 bits that I can send you for the 300+ setting. If you're going for the mild setting then I don't have the #48 (0.076") bit.
PM me.

Yes, I have the bits for both the mild and the 300hp. The black oxide is better because it'll help keep the oil on the bit.

Been on Ebay but most of the sellers wont even consider to ship outside the lower 48. And if they would the S/H charges to Europe sometimes will kill you.

Greenbird, that's a very helpfull link. That's deffinately a good place to order the stuff for reasonable prices, even with intern. shipping.....thanx man.

Tbird 9768 has offered his bits 'cause he had no use for them after his Jmod. Hope we can work something out.
You guys have been very helpfull so far, makes me proud to be a member of the MN12 community.:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Later..

Ed............
