Will A 55' block 350 bolt up to a 87 and newer 700r4

Ok I cant seem to find any spline or bellhousing adapters to match my 1955 block 350 to a 1987 and newer 700r4. Will they directly bolt up and will the splines meatch? I cant seem to find any kits. Ive previously looked at advancedadapters.com and not see squat...

j_sirnio,

If you have a 1955 block then it is going to be a 265 cubic inch engine. It will NOT have the bolt holes you will need for a starter to be bolt to the engine block. In 55 the starter was bolted to the bellhousing not the block. The only thing I can suggest to make this block work is to take the block to a machine shop and have them drill and tap the starter bolt holes. But this would ruin your "clasic" engine block.
Sell your engine and get a newer block I think you will be happier in the long run.

Sorry I was refering to the bolt up pattern the engine block itself is a 1981. Thats my bad and I officially appologize for my filtering what I was thinking to what my fingers were typing.

The bolt pattern of Chevrolet engines at the back of all small block(55-up, 265-400) and big block(58-up, 348-454) and late inline six (late being the 230,250 series), 4.3 V6 are all the same. Early transmissions and bellhousings used the hole at the top peak of the block but later ones don't even have the and later blocks don't either.
