These are the forks. GM had 2 part numbers with the later revision being 14007356

My recent holy grail find. The elusive 697 bellhousing for the 168 tooth flywheel/11" clutch used only on the 78-79 El Camino with the 350 4 speed

Glad to see there are used G body specific bell housings. This is my plan to pick these two up for my 70S. There is a good price on an Olds Hays flywheel but it is late crank bolt pattern only.

I'm glad this thread was started...and I'm glad that I didn't pull the trigger on the BOP BH on CL in my locale being that it's not of the G-body lower pivot ball flavor. Well I might still buy it as I might go with a hydraulic TOB. 😆

Found a used B.O.P. GBody Aluminum Bell Housing local to me. Needed it to be able to check /adjust crankshaft alignment to transmission input shaft misalignment after align honing my rebuilt 3.8L turbo V6 in my automatic transmissioned Buick Grand National.
Needless to say a dial gauge showed I needed to install 0.007” offset dowel pins to correct this misalignment which was out of spec. McRobb adjustable offset dowel pins corrected this issue
