Bell Housing Adaptor Kit to suit Chev V8 Diesel to Nissan Patrol GU ZD30 (Automatic Transmission)
Our Marks4WD Bell Housing Adaptor kit suits a Chev V8 diesel engine conversion to the GU ZD30 Nissan Patrol running the factory automatic transmission.
The kit consists of an adaptor housing that couples the new engine to the original diesel bell housing. The new adaptor housing measures 72 mm in length and spaces the Chevy engine away from the irregular shape of the Nissan Patrol firewall. No firewall modifications or re-positioning of the original transmission is required.
The automatic transmission is retained in its original location along with the original torque converter and flex plate. A specially machined crankshaft adaptor supplied with the kit bolts to the rear of the GM engine and flywheel. The adaptor converts the rear crankshaft bolt pattern from GM dimensions to standard Nissan 6 bolt crank dimensions allowing the Nissan flex-plate and torque converter to be connected to the engine.
A standard GM flywheel is needed for the conversion. The GM automatic flex-plate is not used as the ring gear can be pushed away from the starter pinion while cranking.
An adaptor housing cover plate, which protects the bottom of the automatic transmission from water and dust entry, as well as all the required bolts, nuts and washers, are also supplied with the kit.
An oil pressure sender adaptor is supplied in the kit. The adaptor allows the original Nissan sender to be fitted to the Chevy diesel engine.
A water temperature adaptor is also supplied in the kit. This adaptor allows the original Nissan Temperature gauge sender to be fitted to the Chevy diesel engine.
