November 21, 2009since the turbo 400 motor is a popular trans you should be able to but or get machined a spacer plate that`ll line your bell housing up with the engine. try and get as slim as you can so you dont have to shim the flywheel and stall converter as much. as for the engine mounts theres a good bet they will not line up. prob gonna have to fab up some new ones. good luck. fomr wat ive heard thats a sweet engine
November 22, 2009If you dig around Summit Racing`s or Jeg`s website you should be able to find a bellhousing adapter but I don`t know if a manual tranny flywheel is available for a 472.
