which bellhousing

hi guys,
i'm doing a 4-speed conversion on my 72 chevelle. i'm using a 10.5" clutch with a 168 tooth flywheel which is right around 14" in diameter. i went to bolt on my bellhousing, which is the casting number ending in 403. well, the bellhousing won't clear the flywheel. do i need to get a bellhousing for the 11" clutch to make this work? if so , can you recommend a casting number for me? i'm going to a swap meet next weekend and would like to get the correct one. thanks for any help.

That flywheel sounds way too big for a 10.5" clutch.

Try this site:

bell

If you are running a 168 tooth flywheel you will need the bigger bell. Just as a warning some of the bells that will clear that flywheel are through the roof in price...... you may want to keep your eye open for a blow proof....

I am not sure if this is a stock car or something you plan on racing????

Try local boneyards. I picked up a couple of larger bellhousings for $5-$10 a few years back for the '67 from a yard. I recently found out they were 621 castings and are selling for $200+ on Ebay!

Look in the clutch section for the 621 bellhousing.

Might also try www.kajunjon.com

thanks for all the help guys. i'm wondering if it wouldn't just be cheaper and easier for me to get the 153 tooth flywheel and use the bellhousing i already have? i'll see what the swap meet turns up this weekend.
