Can\'t find a bell housing
In late April my '83 J20 got stolen and slammed into a crash barrier at an angle. The left steering knuckle, both left rims, left front fender, front bumper, tranny mounts, clutch disk, clutch preasure plate and the bell housing all got totaled. I hate to feel this way, but I got a little satisfaction by the fact that the driver's window also got broken (by the driver's head) and the door panel gained a big dent from his/her shoulder.
I pulled the 360 engine to get to the bell housing and to fix what I thought was the rear main seal leaking into the clutch. I pulled the rear main cap and there was almost no babot left in the bearing (155k miles). If none of this had come up I would have probably gotten 20k more out of that engine, but it's not worth re-installing without a rebuild.
I have replaced everything except the bell housing and I'm waiting for $$ to rebuild the engine.
My problem is this, <font color="red"> </font> I cannot find a bell housing. <font color="black"> </font> It seems, from what I have been able to find out, that this configuration of transmission, a Borg Warner 4 speed, and engine was built between the years '80 to '83 and only on a J20.
Any help would be appreciated.
