    Are you sure it's a tranny from a v8 or 4.3 truck? If it's from a 2.8 truck, it's a different bellhousing.

    I've seen this issue before but with a TH350. The bell housings were sometimes different between the use of the 153 tooth flexplate versus the 168 tooth flexplate. I assume that GM may have made a slightly different bell on some 700R4's as well. It certainly doesn't make sense but it is possible.
