Bell Housing Adaptor Kits
Chev LS V8 to FJ40, FJ45, FJ55, FJ60, FJ70 & FJ75 4 and 5-Speed Manual Kit part no. This kit is designed to be used with our LS flywheel (MFK268G3) and clutch (MCK110) along with the Toyota bell housing. Instead of a new bell housing, a flywheel housing is supplied which measures 122 mm/4.8" long. This housing has the GM bolt pattern on the front and the Toyota 1F, 2F, and 3F bolt pattern on the rear.
The kit has been designed to allow for firewall clearance without shifting the transmission or altering the drive shaft lengths. The gear box input shaft is coupled to the clutch via an input extension shaft. The shaft has the Toyota internal spline and spigot diameter on the gearbox end with the GM external spline and spigot diameter on the engine end. The front of the shaft is supported in the crankshaft by a sealed ball bearing inside an adaptor ring. The clutch is operated through a thrust bearing extension sleeve, which is supported in a machined boss located in the centre of the housing. On the front of the sleeve is a thrust bearing to suit the GM clutch pressure plate.
The kit is also supplied with an oil pressure sensor adaptor, the adaptor is fitted in place of the of the GM sender located behind the intake manifold at the back of the engine block.
A water temperature adaptor is also supplied, the adaptor is fitted in the right hand cylinder head behind the exhaust manifold, it accepts the original Toyota sender.
NOTE: As this kit was originally designed to replace the F series petrol engine some second hand parts will need to be purchased for the installation into HJ series vehicles. A bell housing from a 2F or 3F 6-cylinder petrol with all of the clutch components such as the slave cylinder, clutch fork etc. To replace the B series engines you will need the same F series parts as before but you will also need to change out the gearbox input shaft as well.
NOTE: Not recommended for FJ80 as the engine will be positioned forwards of the ideal position and there will be minimal space for thermo fan/radiator setup
