looking for someone with books/knowledge to positively i.d. these pontiac parts ...bellhousing #9778882 ....flywheel #3236259 w-2 ..... date?--f231........2 3/4'' register, 164 teeth, 10.4'' clutch....thanx in advance
Thanx......i know its a pontiac bellhousing, just wondering the year/car it was made for, but there all the same, yes?.....its mainly the flywheel which seems different, although, pontiac was the only 2 3/4'' register, yes?....chevy is 2 1/2''??
Chevy is 2.49" The only difference I know of is that the Pontiac Bellhousing in later models has a different setup for the throwout fork. I have two of the early bells...I will sell one. Its been welded below the area it bolts to the car...Looks like a starter broke it or something. The weld is beautiful and very strong but it can be dressed and know one would be the wiser. Make offer, Shipping would be from Middletown Oh 45044
Hey also check out my clutch fork comments....They are specific to Pontiac and you will most likely use the 67'-72' style...#9787069 fork That is currently unavailable from any source I know of....The Chevy fork will work with a wimpy clutch but it will never feel "factory" or correct in action ....Trust me I know. I know you are converting too, too the 4 speed...its a major pain in the A**
I just found Ames Pontiac has the right fork....I just ordered one.
I use a Hays Billet steel SFI approved flywheel...I see them now as cheap as $233 I think from Summit...Good deal and great piece of mind over a factory weak part. I paid $280 for mine through my local speedshop though. Really nice piece.
all the automatic guys are laughin' at us right now !!....did seem less of a hassle back when i did it in high school....i'll hope my fork is right, looks correct from memory, but alas, no part # on it...flywheel turned out to be wrong....best info now points to an amc motor,go figure! but got a brand new(correct) one today, so i'm set to continue!!!
The automatic guys are just jealous that we got enough balls to build what we want and not just be content with what we happened across.
I am helping a guy convert a 67' Chevy nova over to a stick too....He is totally in love with the idea.
