    Hello HAMB, I am in search of a 8BA 3" OEM bellhousing adapter so i can utilize a T5 transmission i recently picked up. I got it home and figured out I didn't have the right bellhousing. Added pictures of the trans i picked up and the current look at the 28 closed cab pickup build. I also put in a picture of the bellhousing I do have and something similar to what I think I am looking for. Thank you,

    Yep, you know what you need. But you should put the ad in the classifieds section.

    Yes, thank you Boden. Was hoping to find someone on here that has one and knows it is the right one for my application. I haven't done much dealings on eBay. I have only purchased one thing from there for the project a radiator.

    From Alchemy's suggestion, I created this thread in the classifieds as well to see if that works better. Thank you all for the suggestions so far. I am new to posting on the HAMB, but have been using it a lot for reference. I look forward to getting a better handle on the workings of the site and interactions with you all in the future. I can use the help and guidance through this build.

    That adapter plate would be great so I could use the bellhousing I have. I was looking for one of those, but couldn't find anyone making something like that for this application?

    Thank you Mr48Chev this looks like what I am really after to be able to use the bellhousing I have instead of having to get but this adapter and then the other speedway mount kit.

    Good morning 1946caddy, I think I sent an email asking for the specific part i was looking for. I typically dont call unless I know it is exactly what I am looking for.
