I considered doing it. My son is putting a 1954 235 into his 1946 2 ton truck. I wanted to keep everything from the 46 motor kept together as I did not want to mix and match parts between the 54 and the 46.

Being the 54 came with the clutch housing I thought about having the adapter plate you designed made and used. But I did not think I would have enough time to have one made. Being my son uses his truck for his catering business I did not want to delay getting his truck back on the road.

Turns out the machine shop took so long to do the rebuild I could of had a truck load of adapters made.

So I am using the 46 clutch housing on the 54 engine.

I am going to put the 54 clutch housing on the 46 engine so I can mount the 46 engine on a 1945 1/2 ton rolling chassis. As soon as I can find a front motor mount. Jeffrey

Your adapter plate is why Stovebolt is a great place. I learn about great things that I may not use but is great to know because one never knows when and what he will come across in the future. Jeffrey

Hy 32vld, just to let you know the 1954 and 55A series trucks use an angled mount at the bellhousing to frame connection, the earlier trucks use a flat mount, so the later bellhousing will not mount into the earlier chassis, hope that helps.

Hy marvin ribbich, all the links to pictures of your excellent adapter are dead, if you want people to be able to make the adapter for themselves you should repost your pictures.
