GM bellhousings

Hi, just can not figure this out. I have a three speed GM tranny and a GM bellhousing and the things will not go together. It seems the input bearing flange is too big to fit into the bellhousing center opening. What gives? Just cheap parts from swapmeets and salvage yards. Is this a car part versus truck part issue? What is a probable solution? Thanks.

You answered your own question. The trans is a truck type and the belhousing is from a car. You will need the correct combo.

Plan B is to take the bellhousing to your machinist and have him open it up a bit. I had this happen a few years ago when I swapped out a Saginaw for a Muncie.

I was in a shop the other day and a guy brought in a bell housing for a 50s Vette. The flywheel wouldn't fit in it. Apparently they made 2 bell housings for different size flywheels.

You might be able to get a front bearing retainer that's designed for a car. Try www.dandltransmission.com or www.kajunjon.com
