Is there a bellhousing that uses a mechanical clutch and is between a 345 and a T19? My Dad needs one for the conversion he's doing. He has a '68 Scout 800 with the aforementioned engine and transmission (after he finds a bellhousing).

Old Scout, a while back you offered to sell me a bellhousing......did that bellhousing utilize a hydrolic clutch?



thanks guys,

Yes, well maybe. The Scout II's used a linkage clutch with the long input shaft on the Scout II specific T18's and T19's. If you have the Ford T19 then things are going to be more difficult.

Nope it's a standard old Mechanical linkage type. There has been more than a few hydraulic retro fits on all sorts of junk here over the years. A new clutch master and slave are ~ 100 for the pair.

Assuming you want to use the stock clutch linkage..

We swapped a '75 Scout II 304/T19 with SII bellhousing into my fiance's '68 V8 800.

What it boils down to is the stock SII mechanical "arm" on the fork pivot is roughly 180-deg off from where it needs to be for the 68 800 linkage.

Solution - some flat bar, a drill, and a welder.. and we had a new "arm" attached in the right place for the 68 800 linkage.

Otherwise, you could probably use any stock 68 V8 bellhousing from a T90 or T18.. the T18 bell would probably work as-is, the T90 may need opened up in some places..
