: bell housing for 81 Sedan Deville

05-13-05, 06:08 PM
I just got an 81 Sedan Deville. It has the 4.1 Buick motor in it, but the crank shifted and locked up the motor. I have heard of this happening before, but no matter..

I am going to do a V8 conversion, but I have not pulled the old motor yet. If the transmission has the double-bolt patten on it, I would put Chevy motor in, otherwise I'm going to most likly go with the Olds 307.

Has anyone seen the transmissions with the double bolt pattern for Chevy / Olds-Pontiac-Buick-Cadillic in these cars?

I will find out soon otherwise..
