An information source on flathead V-8 bell housings
Some time ago you had a question asking whether a truck with a flathead V8 had the wrong starter plate for the truck bell housing. Here is a list of the differences among different bell housings: www.flatheadv8.org/bellhousing.pdf
A surprisingly large number of different bell housings and starter motor plates were used for Ford and Mercury Flathead engines. The link that Mr. Arrowsmith was kind enough to share with us is for an illustrated compilation of virtually every Flathead V-8 bell housing and starter motor plate combination Ford and Mercury used. This takes the guesswork out of figuring out the correct bell housing and starter motor plate combination for any engine and is much appreciated.
