Trying to make sure I assemble the right bell housing etc... I didn't actually pull the engine apart.

Re: Early vs late B20 engines (Phil Singher)

The target car is a 1965, so I get to make a choice on a bellhousing set up the earlier hydraulic clutch or the later one for a cable clutch, yes?<p>I'll call Mike on the flywheel today.<p>Sorry for asking again, just trying to make sure I get it right.<p><br>UPDATE - Talked to Mike and he got me straighted out. I'm going to pull the engine and transmission and see what I've got and then go from there. Thanks for the referral to Mike, he was a huge help.<br><BR><BR>
