I have been looking around the place lately and i have no idea where i can locate a C6 auto with the bigblock bellhousing on it. so if anyone can point us in a direction, that would be sweet!

i thought it may be interesting for others looking to note there are at least 3 different size C6's for big block. there is the car type, the truck type and the 4x4 type. the truck type is too long to use in a car.

I was going to say just get the just parts magazine and ring up any truck wrecker till I read this. Didn't know there was three different types but many of the truck 2WD C6's are advertised as ideal passenger car conversion gearboxes. Food for thought eh?

First of all which type of big block... FE or Lima?
I've got an FE C6.
I also know where a toploader and bellhousing is for a Lima.

Pretty sure it is for his 400M so it is 385 series bolt pattern.

Ok but, it could be an FMX block 400C which has a small block pattern.

True you threw a cat into the bag, guessing he knows what bolt pattern he had.

I wish it was a small block pattern! but for me its just the big block pattern, it uses the same bellhousing as the 429/460 ford engines. i have located a place in the states that makes bellhousings to fit a C4 to the big block housing, so if i can arrange shipping i might go with that, cause C4s are plentiful and can be built to take some serious power. another reason why id rather get the bellhousing is that if i use a C i will need to shorten my tailshaft and get a proper yolk to fit the C6 (apparently C6s are a longer box then C4s etc)
cheers john
