Anyone know where I can get the dimensions for the engine to bellhousing bolt pattern for a Jag V12? I would like to make an adapter plate to use a GM transmission.

Thanks,

Erik

I believe John's cars has a kit to do that, but I can't find the link right now.

Contact Dan Mooney at Classic Jags. If he can't help nobody can! (Let us know what he tells you i.e, is it even possible?)

John's Cars is a specialist in making complete kits to lump an American V8 and transmission into Jaguar S2 and S3 (S4?) sedans and with some additional mechanical work even into E-types. I don't believe he has any need to produced an adapter plate to mate a Jaguar engine to a GM transmission since its the Jaguar engine he advocates replacing in the first place.

Dunno, but it would be easy enough to ask him. images/icons/tongue.gif

Well, https://www.vintagejag.com sells the adapter I am looking for, but it cost $297. The above mentioned business also sells 6 cylinder and standard trans. adapters but they are all close to $300. I would rather have one made for me at a machine shop for &lt;$100, all I need are the dimensions for the Jag side.

Thanks for the replies,

Erik-
