I don't know but I've been told, the 318 Poly uses the same bellhousing as a big block. Anyone know if this is true?

EDIT: Aw crap thread title is wrong.

no...it's the same as the small block "LA" engines.

That's actually one of the things GM got right that mopar didn't; though they had their reasons, theyreally should have used a universal bellhouse pattern like chevy/etc. Though BOP and caddies (iirc) are different, a chevy 454 bolts to the same trans that a 250 stovebolt six bolts to....whereas a slant-six, A/LA, B/RB have three different patterns.

Sorry I didn't see this thread earlier. You can always PM questions too...

Yeah I never updated this thread but I looked it up and found out this information.

Hmm... I do still have a 383 available... maybe I need to pick me up a big block trans...
