Bell Housing PN 3998621 removal without engine removal
« on: November 06, 2022, 07:21:38 PM »
Has anyone been able to remove and reinstall a 621 bell housing in a 1968 camaro without removing the engine? From what I've read it seems it can be done but wanted to confirm with the experts. I plan to replace transmission, clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bushing, and flywheel as well, so I need to be able to get the bell housing out/into the vehicle.

The engine does not need to be removed for any transmission/related parts removalů.as stated above.

I would check your bellhousing alignment. Parallel and concentric. I stock all the shims and dial indicators to do so.
