Default C60X bell housing

not having owned a complete C60X I don't know but this is a right hand drive bellhousing and its not for other Chev CMP's because of the angled mounts.https://www.ebay.com/itm/62-Chevy-23...AAAOSw4f5YClr8

Default C60X bell housing

The spare parts list says it should be 2136589.

The ebay listing photos show part number 3817816 cast into the housing, GM parts wiki suggests application to at least 1960-1962 6 cylinder trucks, maybe 1955-1964. The casting looks to be late enough that the bosses for the foot operated starter were no longer present.
As stated the C60X parts book lists the clutch housing as 2136589. Also, I'm quite sure the rear mounts on my C60X are horizontal cushions using a bracket to mount to a vertical face on the clutch housing. Sorry, I don't have a useful photo of that area available. The appearance of the C60X housing is generally similar by memory to other CMP (most CMP use housing part no. 604364) but must be different to justify a different part number - but I have no idea what the exact difference is.
I have seen similar mounting pads on later 235 engines, but set up for left hand drive. I've no idea why a RHD bellhousing of that period would be in the USA.

Default Right hand

Where there any rear engine applications for a chev 6? My idea is with the motor reversed the fork is then needed on the oposite side.

The Staghound ran a pair of Chevrolet 6’s in the back. Were there any specific ‘left’ and ‘right’ requirements for that installation?

I don't have access to my manuals for the C15TA, Fox and Otter right now but will check later. My impression is that the angled pads were a later version and the style used on the CMP (vertical face on the clutch housing with right angle brackets to attach the engine mounts to a horizontal face on the frame) were an earlier version. Again an (unconfirmed) understanding - that the angled rubberized mounts were developed first to address NVH in lighter duty vehicles.

Staghounds have two GM270s, each with Hydramatic automatic gearboxes so no clutches !

C15TA, Otter and Fox are all listed as using 2136589 as the clutch housing, the same as the C60X.

Default chev 6 bell housings

Hi all; My G-506 WW2 trucks use the right angle mounts on the bell housings , the angled mounts are later 'Civvy' type. CMP is also the right angle type I recall. Looking closer the E-pay one appears to have the hydraulic cyl mounts on the right side. I just sold a complete assembly to the East USA.. all from a early 60's Chev PU; for less than $100 USD incld shipping. Newc in Oregon

A quick google search of the part number turned up a few threads from other forums. They both suggest it’s for a 4 speed with a hydraulic clutch.

I wonder if there was a version made for right side hydraulic clutch applications with the vertical mounting face similar to CMP - it might be a source to replace damaged CMP bellhousings rather than going to the trouble of cutting a new hole in a left side opening housing.....
