    Are you talking about an aftermarket scatter shield bell housing or a GM cast iron housing ?
    If you are talking about the GM 1972 and older cast iron bell than you can not use the 1985 and up slave . Check out Advance Adapters for a bracket that will let you use a Land Cruiser slave on your GM bell housing.
    There is a later model "P" series Van cast iron bell housing that has a provision for a bolt on slave cylinder if you can locate one and use all GM parts .

    Hydraulic bellhousings (at least for our trucks) are all aluminum.

    Used on everything from 6 cylinders to 454's, short of the problems one or two people have expressed on here, the aluminum ones don't seem to be inherently weak.

    I believe Novak or advanced adapters sells an adapter bracket, if you were set on cast iron bellhousing (that's the other stock material AFAIK) adapter is your only bet I imagine.
