    Find a bellhousing from an 85 or newer Chev with the SM 465. Do a search too, there's been lot's of discussion about hydraulic clutch's in the past.

    The bellhousing that you will be looking for is a one peice housing.
    It will not have a dust sheild on it. I have one that I was going to use until I found out that it was for a later 350.

    Just make sure its not a camaro or corvette application (if they even look similar) I'd almost guarantee at a minimum, the input bearing size is different. Only say this because I've seen so many mis-marked bellhousings at swap meets. Also check that the housing to tranny holes aren't drilled out (no threads left) Not sure why someone did that to the one I have, but looks like some kind of project...just keep your eyes open. Local wrecking yard sells bellhousings for $25, but I've only found one hydraulic 465 housing.
