Buick 350 auto to manual swap, need info

i have two Buick 350 engines from skylarks. ones a 71 the other a 72. they both have autos on them. i would like to put a 4 speed transmission onto one of them. im not quite sure what Chevy bell-housing and transmission will fit. i was looking at t-10 from camaros. if someone could help me with this i would be greatly appreciated. i just need to know what years, and what cars have bell-housings and transmissions that will bolt up to my 350 with little to no fabrication needed. thank you. -Ryan

moving it there,,,,,,,,Buick, Pontiac and Olds used the same bellhousing. Chevy was different. A muncie, T10 or Saginaw trans will fit. Chevelole, Skylark, Lemans, Cutlass pedals etc will fit.

NO year Chevy bellhousing will fit. These engines use the BOP bellhousing pattern and only a Buick housing will work. Good luck finding one!

AH, but the starter is not on the same side of all of these different make engines.
Chevy is passenger side.
Olds is drivers side.
Cadillac is passenger side.

There IS a universal bellhousing that has the starter provision for BOTH sides but I cannot remember who makes (or made) it.
