Re: Other engine swaps and B O P bellhousings
I run a Buick 225 in my CJ5. If it is a manual tranny, the transmission end of the bellhousing is the same for Chevy and BOP. Buick engines tend to be more torquey than chevys and are great in Jeeps. The 225 is the V6 version of the old Buick 300 and the torque peaks at 2200. It will keep firing down to 300 rpm if you are brave.
If you get a bellhousing from a '66-71 V6 CJ5 or Jeepster Commando they are BOP and will bolt to Jeep transmissions.
If it is an automatic, the bellhousing is built into the tranny. Some trannys are dual pattern, and adaptors can be had.
