I won't argue that it is very possible.
The torque converter should bolt up just fine if you have a dual bolt pattern flexplate or the correct bolt pattern flexplate. The original torque converter should be the small bolt pattern. The engine mounts will bolt up just fine with the spacer, it's at the transmission mount that the spacers thickness will be added. That too will be fine as the crossmember hole for the transmission mount is slotted.Ram30 said:I have a question what if I use the sbc to bop trans adapter will I have to relocate the motor mounts and also will the torque converter and fly wheel bolt up
it is a chevy for my elco also am looking for headers that will work with the clutch assembly any ideasPatrick b: if it was a Chevy 3.3 or 3.8 liter, the bellhousing, trans and linkage will bolt on to a SBC or BBC just the same, but it will only fit a 10.5" flywheel (153 teeth). But, if you locate an 80s Camaro or Firebird, the flywheel and clutch are the same up to 85; an 86 or later SBC will have a 1-pc rear main, which uses a different flywheel, but the same 10.5" clutch. If you go further and use the T-5 from the F-body, you will need to modify the trans crossmember to fit the offset trans mount GM used in the F-bodies.

If it was a Buick 3.8 liter, that bellhousing is worth some coin! The Buick G-body bellhousing fits an 11" clutch and can work with any Buick, Olds, Pontiac, or Cadillac. The trick, of course, is finding a flywheel for any of those motors...
