Dodge poly bell housing; what manual transmissions fit the bell housing?

The junk yard that I bought my 331 Chrys. Hemi out of has a '50 something Dodge truck with a poly engine in it of some sort. The trans is long gone but the bell housing, flywheel and pressure plate are all there... What all manual trans will fit this bell housing? I.E. 833, etc. Does anyone offer an adapter for these bells to a tremec 5 speed, or an S-10 manual, for instance?

Probably not a whole lot of later model transmissions without a bunch of work. If it;s a pickup it probably had a 3 speed and a bigger ruck would likely have had a granny gear 4 speed.

At one time I was going to use the big truck bellhousing on a project but never quite got it done.


I did do a write up on it and building my own using the truck bell and building my own adaptor from a stock spacer plate that might help you though.

On a side note, if your Hemi came from an automatic equipted car chances arethe crank has not been drilled for a piolet bearing.

The crank is probably not drilled. I just got the engine out of the JY and to the garage and have not separated the orig auto from it yet. I was originally gonna just use the '54 auto trans but I'm rethinking that idea in the favor of reliability. I thought I may have stumbled upon a cheaper/easier alternative. Thanks for the info!
