Bell Housing Adaptor Kit to suit Chev V8 Petrol (early) 168 Tooth Flywheel to LandCruiser Gearbox (4.5L) (5-speed manual)

This kit comprises of a flywheel housing running a 3 piece steel flywheel.

The flywheel housing is supplied which measures 61mm/2.4“ long. This housing has the GM bolt pattern on the front and the Toyota 1FZ, bolt pattern on the rear.

The new steel flywheel is the same design as the one used with the LS series engine kits. It is supplied with a flex plate stiffener which bolts up to the original GM flex plate, the stiffener is basically a very thin flywheel. A crankshaft adaptor/spacer is bolted to the crankshaft which also secures the flex plate/ring gear and flex plate stiffener to the crankshaft. The original GM flex plate with the 168-tooth ring gear is used. The new steel flywheel is drilled and doweled to accept the standard LandCruiser 4.5Lt 12“ clutch as fitted to FZJ series engines.

Clutch Kits

The flywheel assembly is heavier than a standard flywheel, giving greater inertia allowing the engine to idle smoother. The extra weight also helps to give less chance of stalling the engine when off road, climbing over rocks, and taking off on steep inclines. The extra weight of the flywheel has no adverse effect on the engine.
