Chevy bellhousing dimensions

Does anyone have a photo with the measurements on it? I've been looking around on the net for a while and can't seem to find anything. I'm building an engine test stand and don' know how deep the 'housing is and the distance between tranny mount bolts (3-4 Speed). Thanks.

Well, I can't help a whole lot on the bellhousing depth until I get home (a couple days away right now since I'm now a truck driver), but the other measurement is it for the crossmember mount bolt away form the engine, or are you looking for the transmission to bellhousing bolt pattern, which can be found here GM bellhousing to trans bolt pattern.

Set a chevy bellhousing down on a table , engine side down and the measurement from the table to the trans mounting face is 6 5/16".In other words, the bellhousing is 6 .3125" from motor to trans.

The distance between trans mount bolts, (on the bottom of the rubber mount), is 1 1/2" .

On the engine test stand I built, I slotted the trans mount holes sideways as well as longways, so I could put any motor up on it..I made the rear mount stationary, and the motor mounts moveable so I could accommodate any length of engine /trans combination.

Hope this helps, later, mikey

Thanks guys

M&M I found that pic after I posted the question and I was really needing the depth from block to transmission mounting surface which powerrodsmike said is 6 5/16. This is good because I figured in 7 inches for the depth. My crossmember is fully adjustable so I can slide it back.

I have a bellhousing but it's still in the car in storage surrounded by junk. It's been there since I joined the service 11 years ago. I'll get to it someday!!!

Thanks again I'll post some pics after I get It finished.

Thanks Zapper but that doesn't give the depth for a manual transmission bellhousing. I've already finished the mounts for my stand so I'm forging ahead.

UAE huh, man that sucks, I drank plenty of beer in the Sand Box! I was on the Truman for her maiden voyage. VMFA 312 to be exact.
