Hey guys so i'm relatively new here but wanted to get some opinions on a bell housing i picked up for a T56 from a 2003 cobra. It looks like there's either a scratch or crack in the bell housing right where the starter hump is. I'm hoping its not a crack but just wanted to get some opinions.

it doesn't look like a crack to me,but I am just looking at a picture lol. I wouldn't be scared of it- but if you are not 100% on wether it's a crack or not, Google welding /machine shops in your area,and have them look at it.
If it is a crack-have them weld it. If not-run it :)

Hard to say if it's a crack or a casting line. Is the feature on the opposite side?
Hey thanks for the reply. No there's no mark on the opposite side. After looking at the area with a magnifying glass it looks like a casting line, it's a raised spot.
