The bellhousing allows the engine to be installed longitudinally in the vertical position instead of the 7 degrees inclination in the transverse installation.

You may also need the spigot bearing that fits directly in the end of the crankshaft. The RS2000 Clutch Fork and RS2000 Clutch Release Bearing may also be required.

* The quick release option allows quicker gearbox removal and fitting by moving the 4 internal gearbox to bellhousing bolts to the outside of the gearbox. This allows the gearbox to be removed whilst leaving the bellhousing in place, making a difficult job much easier.

If you do not specify the quick release option you will need 4 of 12mm x 1 1/2mm pitch cap head screws (available here),which are fitted inside the bellhousing into the tapped holes in the front face of the gearbox .

spot on many thanks well pleased

perfect fit thankyou

Great Quality Xe to ford bell housing non 7 degree

The quality of the cast is very good, I’m running an Ap twin paddle clutch and found that the clutch arm didn’t go far enough back once the release bearing was fitted, there is plenty of cast to be able to remove some material to enable the clutch to dis engage leaving it still very strong in that area. Very pleased with my purchase and would recommend

Escort Bell Housing

Great item and service.

Saab 9-5 Flywheel Fitment

The bellhousing is really clean exactly what I hoped it to be. But as a note it should mention that the Saab 9-5 flywheel and pressure plate do not clear
