Re: Chevy 250 swap into 53 pickup

The front side that mates to the block of a 216, 235 or 261 bellhousing looks like this 51 bellhousing that I have.

The cast iron truck bellhousing that will bolt to the mounts on the crossmember and bolt to the back of a V8 or 194, 230, 250 or 292 engine or the Chevy II four banger looks like this

As I said earlier my 48 originally came to me with a 194 in it with one of these bellhousings between it and the stock 48 column shift 3 speed In a one night swap (I was a lot younger then) I pulled the stock rear axle and trans out and bolted the later open drive 3 speed and 61 Impala trans in, hooked it up and drove it to work on swing shift the next afternoon. Sure couldn't do it that fast now though
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem.

My ongoing truck projects:
48 Chev 3100 that will run a 292 Six.
71 GMC 2500 that is getting a Cad 500 transplant.
