What bolts to bolt it together?
So I have a cast sm465 bell housing at the house now.
A rebuilt 465 transmission/dana18 transfer case(bolted together in one piece with the 4 sticks on the side) is currently in route and should arrive the 19th.
I have a 2 bolt 350 that should be delivered the 19th also.
I will be home the 23rd and would like to temporarily bolt these together (without the flywheel/clutch)to get a better idea the power-train size. It would just let me take measurements (instead of close guesses using internet measurements) so I can refine the buggy design (from December to August) out on the road.
I did not plan on getting the engine till next year. Just one of those deals that fell into my lap. This is the reason I did not plan on bolting this up. It would be great to mock this up before I go.
Now, after a little online searching I have found a few forums that say the sm465 to bell housing bolts are 1/2-13 NC bolts. Although I can't seem to find a depth. Or anything on the bell housing to transmission bolts.
I will take recommendations for the final assembly(studs and such). But for now, I just need the stock bolt sizes that will work as this is only the mock up stage.
