I was just wondering if they make a regular small block 11" bellhousing I don't want one of the Lakewood type blow proof ones. Dont want to cut the floor. Al help appreciated Thanks
There are small block bellhousings for a 143-tooth flywheel/ 11" clutch but they do not A833 transmission pattern- they have the 3 spd. or NP435/445 granny gear truck transmission bolt pattern
The truck bellhousings the had an 833od, it would be 143 tooth, 11 inch. It requires the 5.25 input bearing retainer, which may not bolt to you case. Try Brewer's for inputs or adapter rings.
The A833 truck bellhousings used the 130 tooth flywheel. An A833 small block 143 tooth/ 11" clutch bellhousing doesn't exist as far as OE bellhousing go.
70/71 Hemi's came with 130 tooth flywheels and 10.95" clutches. Quick Time housings are tapered like stock. You need to index the bearing like any housing from another engine. This dial indicator and a magnetic base mike this job easier.
