does anyone know if the ford t56 bellhousing will bolt onto the chevy t56? im curious to find out weather i absolutly need that mcleod bellhouseing or not, there kinda pricey, and factory bellhousings are a dime a dozen on ebay.
You can try it. I just examined the rebuild documentation and it shows different front plates as well as bell housings for the GM, Ford, Dodge and aftermarket renditions. The GM front plate is machined for the GM spec input shaft, Ford for Ford, etc.
i have talked to tremec about swaping tailshafts and the gentelman i spoke with said that the t56 was designed essentially as a modular transmission. the gto t56 is just a ls1 t56 with a different tailshaft, alot of the parts are interchangeable between different model years and manufaturers. they are just kinda hard to get ahold of a good tech guy at tremec, they all seem to wanna pass your call off to the next joe..
