Advance Adapters Clutch Fork

A conventional small-block Chevy bellhousing cannot be used to bolt the NV4500 to the engine, so Stage West used one from Advance Adapters with the clutch fork on the driver side. Another option is the genuine GM bellhousing as used on '93-and-newer trucks with the MT8 trans and a gas engine. However, this GM bellhousing uses an integral clutch slave cylinder on the passenger side. It's ideal for vehicles with driver-side transfer case output, but lousy for passenger-side output since the driveshaft will hit the slave cylinder.
