NOS means New Old Stock, and these parts are. They have been sitting in a warehouse for at least 20 years. I found a source for this new old stuff and when the source runs dry, that’s it... all gone. These parts will fit wedge Indys from 1983 to 1997 (with extruded front bumpers).
Each of these parts is on the large side, which complicates shipping. Firstly there will be a carton charge because I’ll have to make a custom carton. Secondly UPS and FedEx will charge like crazy to ship this stuff. The end runs are two: 1) Greyhound Package Express (about $100) and 2) Speedee for MN, SD, ND, WI and northern IL--something like 80 bucks. If you are close enough to pick up, try that for savings.
New Indy Pan $219
The new pans I’m featuring are the ones for liquid cooled models but I can get fan cooled pans too. The only difference is the vent on the right side. This is the bare-bones pan with holes pre-drilled but that’s it. If you are building a nice sled to new or are building my RXL conversion kit, you may want to start with a clean new pan instead pouring through the ‘best of used ones’ from the used parts dealers. Or using the one that came on your sled with three exhaust holes and lots of tree evidence. Pans are black. [Carton 48 x 36 x12] [Estimated weight 12 lbs].
New Indy Bulkhead $195
I know the only guys who’d buy a new bulk head are the super builders who want to start with fresh chassis parts. Or someone who took a terrific impact with large solid object-enough so to distort the ski supports on the bulk head. I wish these parts came in raw aluminum for easy polishing but the factory made ‘em in black. Happily the paint is one of those jiffy jobs factories do with a quicky spray gun. The stuff’s semi-gloss and thin so Zip Strip and a pressure washer should do the job. I recommend powder coating in your choice of color so the finish is rich, glossy and lasts for an age. At least you’ll know these bulk heads are nuts-on from the factory so some slight tweak from a used bulk head won’t find its way into your build at the worst possible time-when you are done.
My bulkhead supply is limited to ten units. Most of them are for 1980-92 earlier generation Indys. A few are for 1995/96 XCRS. If you look closely you’ll see differing structures. Just match yours to these shown here. [Carton 34x 24 x 15] [Estimated weight 15 lbs].
1995/96 XCRs with lower mounts and longer suspension travel
1980-1992 earlier generation Indys with the early mounting plates
If you are after a super clean bulkhead expect to do some power sanding on the bottom surfaces. There is a fair amount of welding splatter in those areas.
New Indy Tunnel $295
Just looking at a brand new tunnel is a refreshing change. There is no aluminum corrosion. There are no extra holes from suspension changes. There is no foot wear. There are no bends with crude fix attempts. These are just raw new aluminum tunnels starring at you saying “polish me” or “paint me”. Start clean. Start new. All the holes are drilled and the suspension axle flanges are attached as is the rear gas tank anchor. I photographed the first tunnel I purchased-it was paintless. Sadly all remaining tunnels are in black so you’ll have to do the paint removal trick if you want a raw finish. I may have a new source on unpainted ones--call me. [Carton 60 x 36 x 12] [Estimated weight 20 lbs].
