Bell Housing Adaptor Kit (Inc. Clutch) to suit Commodore V6 to Toyota Hilux Gearbox (G52 5-speed manual)
The bell housing has been designed to space the engine away from the firewall in order to clear the throttle body at the rear of the V6 engine. The original 5-speed is not moved, therefore, no firewall modifications, repositioning of the gearbox, or tail shaft modifications are required.
The clutch is coupled to the gearbox by a special gearbox input extension shaft. It has the GM spigot diameter with an external spline on the engine end and Toyota spigot diameter with an internal spline on the gearbox end. The new input shaft allows the standard V6 GM clutch pressure plate with a V8 clutch disc to be used on the V6 flywheel. The V8 clutch disc provides less clutch shudder due to the clutch plate having stronger centre springs.
The thrust bearing and extension carrier supplied in the kit slide over the gearbox nose cone and will allow the Bundera petrol or diesel 4-cylinder clutch fork to be used with the new pivot supplied in the kit. The extension carrier is also supported by the new bell housing.
When replacing the Toyota petrol engine, a diesel model slave cylinder will need to be purchased.
Commodore V6 Engine Requirements
You will need to obtain the following components. The Commodore V6 engine is complete with the main engine wiring harness, the ECM computer and mem-cal. Other accessories such as the map sensor, purge canister, air cleaner and ducting, air conditioning compressor and power steering pump, engine pipes and catalytic converter, external fuel pump and damper.
If you purchase an auto engine and plan on using it with this kit, we can supply a manual flywheel that is used in conjunction with the original auto flex plate. On VN and VP models, the auto starter will need to be changed for the manual Delco Remy starter.
The engine should also have the driver-side engine mount rubber and bracket.
