    Does anyone have an old catalog with part numbers and application?

    Ive got two Ansen cast iron bellhousings.

    Part Numbers:

    They're both SBC but have a few differences.

    You got the lower piece for both? they always seem to be missing from the ones I see around here. I'll check my no. tomorrow.

    Yes, I've got one lower piece and it seems like it will fit both but the holes in the 5503 are smaller diamater.

    Hi Ben,
    So I looked for those numbers my 1968 Ansen catalog.
    I don't see your numbers here but I have run into that before trying to look up other numbers.
    The most popular numbers for these on ebay seem to be 5001 and 5003 and they're not here either.
    I am starting to think that it's possible that Ansen changed the numbers yearly or often maybe to keep track of castings/ dates.
    For the SBC applications it's important to read their notes about the differences.
    Since the blocks and mounting were the same, the differences were about flywheel and starter mounting and factory clutch linkage.
    Then there were the ones with the motor mount ears for '55-'57 Chevys.
    Aside from the size of the flywheel, us hotrodders should be able to get around those differences by just choosing starters and clutch linkage
    based on what fits?
    If you want to send me an email address, I'll send you a scan of the page.
    Hope this is of some help-
