Post another NOVICE question

I just pulled my engine and transmission from my 65 vette. The bellhousing is a shaterfield type(hopefully I'm saying this correctly) It was a tite fit and I thought I would change it to a standard bellhousing so when I put it back it won't be such a tight squeeze. A standard housing should be fine, it's not a 500HP engine.
The engine is a chevy 350 cid 1984 era and the tranny is a Muncie M20. What do I look for when buying a bellhousing? So I know the Muncie will mate up with it and also the engine

.

The scattershield is "Good Insurance" anyway. You already have a NoN matching number engine so why spend money trying to put it back to a 'original style' bellhousing.

What you have works so the small amount of trouble you encounter reinstalling the engine/trans will be more than offset with the safety of the bellhousing.

Just my 2 cents....

I have a 69 Vette and the bell housing was so tight to the floor board I had to remove some of the floor(small amount in front of the bolt) and grind the wrench down just to loosen the bolts. This is a stock bell housing so I doubt you would acomplish anything going back to the original.
