I have complete cars with PG bell housings but didn't want to tear down a whole car to get one. Especially with the chance it might be cracked also. Someone here finally came up with one for me but they weren't plentiful.

I have always found it curious how (comparatively) rare the late PG bellhousings and flex plates are in comparison. That said never had too much trouble finding one. Never seen them crack except due to trauma. I got T boned in my 63 20 years ago and it broke the bell housing.

FYI in case anyone didn't know or forgot the Junkyard Primer has the wrong casting number for the LM PG bell housing.
