Trans adapter plate, etc

Hi Ben,

Just watched your quick video. Have you contacted Kennedy Engineering? They are ALL about trans adapters!
The way I see it, you have three options;
a) Use the S10 bellhousing and add an adapter to the Merc engine's bell mounting plate
b) Use the Merc manual bellhousing and adapt it to the T5
c) Make a new bell mounting plate for the engine with the S10 bell pattern.
Points to consider are the location of the starter in relation to the flywheel's gear ring;
Length of the T5's input shaft and depth of engagement when bolted up to whatever adapter combo you use.
My .02 and food for thought,
Mike in FL
