    ok, the B/H i have has threads on all 4 holes.
    the tranny i have has threads at the bottom 2 holes.
    i cant fit the bolts that came with the B/H through the bottom 2 tranny holes. will i be able to drill out the threads on the B/H and install the bolts like on the linkage style B/H?
    the hyd B/H i am using is aluminum.

    I ran into the same problem...Apparently, older 465's (like early- 70's)...From what I understand, the older trannies had the bottom two holes mounted from the bellhousing side...I just drilled out the bottom holes...I also had to clearance out the PTO cover and the upper corner of the cutout for the PTO cover so I could get the bolts in and tightened...I ended up using up a SHCS (Socket Head Cap Screw) that I tighted with a 3/8 allen key in all 4 holes...

    So yeah, just drill em out and mount it up....

    Make sure the bolt head has a nice solid, flat surface to rest on.....

    I used 4 of these in high grade stainless...It allowed me to mount all 4 bolts form the tranny side, instead of two from the tranny and two from the bellhousing side like some of the older trannies were mounted...
