Does anyone have a source that I can buy a 6.5 diesel 5 speed HD bellhousing? Mine was cracked and I drove 2500 miles home from Tn to California without knowing. I have called locally here in Sacramento,Ca and I cant find anything. Anyone have any ideas? Welding the cracks is not possible...it is cracked almost twice around and hanging on barely....I cant believe how bad it is. Ideas, thanks guys, I appreciate it...plan on being a member here for awhile, I just bought a 1995 Chevy 3500HD 6.5 diesel with a 5 speed manual....I am aware of the problems with this engine/fuel...and decided to take my chances ;)

There is nothing unique about the 6.5L bellhousing. You just need a NV4500 bellhousing from either gas or diesel. I cannot remember if the 1995 NV4500 had the internal slave cylinder/release combo or if it was mounted on the bell like the earlier units.

 

The 6.5L is actually a decent diesel. If the electronic Stanadyne pump gives you trouble just swap on a 1993 mechanical pump and your problems will be gone.

I forgot to mention that since you are in CA right now….call TEC of CA in Oakland (510)577-5528 or Crest Chevrolet in San Bernadino (909)883-8833 as they are two of the largest GM part stocking dealers in the west.

 

You may never find a used one. The only thing harder than finding a GM truck with a manual trans is finding used parts for a GM truck with a manual trans.

I just got 37 hits on that site. Make sure you scroll down to (Transmission/Bellhousing only) and search all areas at once.

Well, I called around and everyone asked if it was a HD or not, everyone said 150 or so...and then once they asked or I said it was an HD, either they didnt have it or the price doubled. So I got one coming from Idaho for 300$, hopefully im not getting ripped tooooo bad....
