Default BW55 bellhousing with M46 transmission?

Is it possible to use an auto bellhousing off a BW55 on an M46? I have a BW55 in my 1980 264 diesel and would like to eventually convert it to a manual transmission so I can have an overdrive but finding a manual diesel bellhousing is proving to be very tough. Anybody know if this is possible or if it's possible to convert to an aw71? That would work fine too, basically I just want overdrive on my diesel. Thanks.

No it won't work.

Mueller had a D24 / M46 bell housing, or post in WANTED.

No chance for the AW71 with the diesel either?

That might swap but the front driveshaft would need to be shortened, and the wiring figured out.

Wiring and driveshaft length doesn't bother me, I have a friend who works at fleetpride who can make any driveshaft I need haha. If someone could verify that the converter would work and the bellhousing would fit that would be great because an overdrive would make the car so nice on long trips.

The BW55 bell housing unbolts from the body of the transmission, I'm sure you could make an adapter for that.

Since the M46 was used in 700 Turbo diesels, why not look for that or have you already done so?

Has anyone actually tried to fit a BW55 bell housing over a flywheel/clutch stack? What about fork pivot, etc.? I would imagine that is far more work (if even possible) than searching out a D24 based M46 from a 740/760

200's use a different bellhousing than 700's. The engine sits more upright in a 700. He needs one from a 240/260.

OP: I think I know a guy who has a 240 bellhousing. Shoot me a PM and I'll give you his contact info.

Is it different than a gas clutch pedal set? I have one of those from a 91 244.

I can sell you everything you need to put a m46 in place of that bw55.

Its possible to use a gas clutch petal assy, I prefer the gas ones over the diesel ones anyway. I kept on breaking the clutch cable in my diesel. You can unbolt the petal and swap the two.
