    Default Any late model R10 bellhousings out there?

    Hi, I believe to fit a 1397/1289 to a R10 I require a late model bellhousing? I have a 330.03 box with the early bell housing. Regards, Greg

    You will also need the input shaft, and clutch fork to suit the later thrust bearing.

    Also a input shaft seal and a bell housing gasket

    I was reliably informed that the 330.03 gearbox has the same imput shaft?

    You will need to ensure you have the fine spline as opposed to the course spline input shaft.

    Obviously you will need to run the R12 clutch/pressure plate set up too

    Pictures also help

    The spigot shaft should be checked very carefully and as KB said there could be a spline difference at the clutch end, but even if the splines are the same, the old bell housing has a spigot shaft oil seal on the outside, the new ones have it on the inside and when you do not change to the new spigot the oil seal surface is just shy from the oil seal and it causes a huge oil leak.

    Obviously, that will need the engine out again and bell housing off again and a special tool to take the roll pin out that secures the spigot.

    Regards, Frans.

    That is not a must. The old type can be used provided that you have a pressure plate with the triangular plate on top of the fingers and a roller thrust replacement with the big smooth pressure surface almost the same as the old carbon thrust.
