Chris,

How and where do you now attach the sprue to pour the casting now that the hub has been removed ?.

2 AM.. cant sleep :)

That job has been cast ans assembled already.. i dont cast myself, it goes to a casting company, they attach a sprue dependant to where it will placed on their tree of castings and according th emethod which will give them best flow of metal at the time.

i will upload images oc complete stuff from work in a few hours and hgilight where the sprue was
