sm465 swap, bellhousing fabrication

I am planning on putting a sm465 in my Jeep within the next week or two, hopefully, and am wondering if anyones has done this while keeping the hydralic slave cylinder? If you have, how did you bolt it to the bellhousing. I tried finding a bellhousing for the tranny that had the ears for the cylinder to bolt to it but couldn't find one. One guy at a tranny shop swears that GM had a hydralic slave cylinder from factory for the sm465 but I can't find one anywhere. By the way no adapter to engine cause it's a chevy. Oh yeah it's a 1980 sr4 that's getting tossed, third one.
Thanks for the help guys.

I cant really help you on the way they are attached, but I know that 84-85 up chevys had hydraulic clutches!!! I guess I need to go stare at one a little closer huh...I'm wanting to do the same thing to mine..

It's as close to a 1ton as it can get and still be a jeep!!! Gotta love it!!

I made mine with $.50 worth of steel...2 bellhousing bolts held it until I got a new clutch, then I added a small bracket to one of the inspection cover bolts. It's a pain to make, but it works good.

Re: sm465 swap, bellhousing fabrication

Sorry no pics...It's a piece of 1/4 x 2 flatstock that the slave bolts to, with (2)1/4 x 1 'L' shaped tabs that the bellhousing bolts go thru, then I bolted it on and scabbed on some angle pieces keep it from bending. It's not anything special, and the workmanship is just soso scab,weld,grind and paint...
