It's been a long time since I've posted but I'm off on a new project and when I need advise there's no better place than Chevytalk to get it. Here's my question will a 4.3 bellhousing fit my 65 327? The reason I ask is I want a hydraulic clutch to use with my T5 tranny. I'm putting this in a 49 Plymouth. Or is there something better than the S10 housing? Thanks in advance

The S.O.B. from the factory...
71 1/2 ton, 64 Chevelle SS, 57 2dr Hardtop, 57 2dr Sedan, 57 Corvette, 52 2dr Hardtop, 52 2dr Sedan, and now a 49 Plymouth Coupe, 1930 Model "A", 1934 Ford Truck, all Chevy powered of course.

Your 4.3 bellhousing should bolt to the 327. Was the T-5 originally bolted to this bellhousing? If yes, you should be good to go. If not, check the center hole size. If it is 5-1/8", you will need a spacer ring because the T-5 bearing retainer is 4-11/16" diameter. Spacer rings are available from outfits which sell transmission adapters like Novak and Advance Adapters.

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
