Should I have a adapter made to mate a big block 11" bell to the Hemi or one that mates the A833 to the small block np435 11" bell ????
PS My first Hemi build. Great motor .
If you breeze over to the Hemi.com site, there is a group who specialize in adaptor plates. I have a Desoto 276ci hemi, and my plate was $600.00 for the Chevy conversion. It might seam and awfull amount to spend, but for the engineering and the macine shop work, plus it fits ALL GM and Chevy transmissions to my hemi. Worth every penny spent.
