SAE to GM/FORD/CHRYSLER Bellhousing Adapter

Anyone ever use this company? They make adapters for SAE bellhousings to Chevy/Ford/Chrysler transmissions. I'm thinking about buying an adapter to use a regular trans behind my Detroit Diesel. Right now, I currently have a Roadranger in the plans. With the adapter, I could use really any heavy duty truck manual transmission. Seems like it'd be less work and better driveablility. Thoughts?

No problems! I think I'm going to end up giving them a try with my detroit powered truck.

So I realize that this thread is 4 years old but I was wondering how that adapter worked out for you? I am thinking about putting a 3-71 in a 72 4x4 shortbox but I really want to keep the SM465. I was just curious how that whole operation worked out for you.

i just sold one for a chevy the only touble you have to use two flywheel just remeber you 371 only runs 2100

i never used mine i paid 570.00 for mine and sold it for 400.00

i think you will need a overdrive cause of the gear in the 465 are not very good to wide between gears

Yea I know that speed wont be its strong point. I was thinking more of 4.56 gears and make a rock crawler

Also I have been looking at some other detroits and do you know where I could get ahold of an SAE #1 to GM bellhousing?
