Bellhousing adapter ?

Does anyone know of a company that makes a conversion bellhousing for a Ford 302 to a R150F (3.0 V6) transmission? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Bob
PS already called North West Offroad and Advance Adapters.

Advanced makes one for the 302 that sells through Northwest only, but it mates the 302 with the w or g series trans.

Here's some info, but more aimed toward the r151:

got the 2004-2005 catalog and nothing but swaps with Chevy motors. There's a pic of what I need in the other thread that was pointed out, it's on the second page. Seems it was custom mde. I just don't have the money to custom make one :-(

Why not just ditch the V6 tranny, and go W56 and a 4cyl case?

the v6 tranny and chain driven case would take more abuse than the the W56 and 4cyl case

I have a r151 tranny sitting in the shop. I have 3 w56 trannies in my storage building. I was wondering if you can use the bellhousing off of one of the w56 to adapt the v6 tranny to my 22re. My reason for asking is I already have dual cases w/23 spline inputs(was behind sbc/350 turbo)one has 4.7 gears so changing back to 21 splines isn't going to happen, I know I will have to buy the adaptor for the transfer case but thats ok unless I can find a turbo trans or transfer case I will have to buy both bellhousing and transfer case adaptor.

Sounds like you need the same thing I do, that lil adapter plate in the link that I provided. Now I see how the adapter works now the question is where to get one. Only other question is "having an equal thickness
spigot bearing housing extension machined to fit the existing crank section" what does that mean in plain english? What part would that be and how can I make it work? Man this is becoming a headache but I don't feel like ditching the 2 V6 Trannies and transfer cases I have.

Good info, guessing going to have to wait for Dellow to drop me a line back. So Other than the bellhousing, going to have to use a Toyota Clutch disc, Ford Flywheel, Ford Pressure plate, Now the question is is what kind of slave cylinder would I need?

Lets see. How to do this..

1. Sell current pre 1996 R150F and use the coin to buy a 96 and later R150F (it has a longer input shaft)

2. Buy bellhousing adapter from AA for Ford to Jeep AX15

3. Pick up 92 and earlier front bearing retainer for Jeep AX15 and use stock Jeep hydraulic throw out bearing.

4. Bolt adater up to stock Ford bellhousing along with R150F tranny and enjoy.

Been searching for specs and prices for the newer 150 and noticing it's alot more expensive than the earlier ones. Also found that the newer models are forward shift instead of the top-shifting style that I have (thinking with that tranny would have to cut up my floor board) and I have to get a new transfer case as well.

Well finally got an E-mail back from Dellow figured I'd share what I found. I'm under the impression the prices are in AU currency.

"Thankyou for your enquiry. Please find below a list of parts and prices to
install a Toyota Hilux R151 5-speed behind your Ford V8 302 in your Hilux.

Kit includes:

Bellhousing $550
Pilot bush $25
Clutch fork $95
Thrust race & carrier $95
Clutch plate 10" $145
Clutch plate 11" $185

Note: The slave cylinder must be moved to the driver's side as the Ford V8
starter motor is in the way. We can supply a slave that bolts on directly for
$70.

Best regards,

Dellow Automotive"

So with all the parts listed besides the clutch would be 636.77 US dollars. Considering I'm new to manual tranny parts where would the thrust race and carrier go?
