Default Bell Housing Help Needed

After surfing the web most of the day in search of a comparable engine, I can't find an engine with the correct bellhousing. I'm thing of using a Hercules, Cummings, or Waukesha. Either gas or diesel. The problem I'm having is the original engine is a sae 1 bellhousing and can't find a source that lists the sae number for the new engine. Does anyone know if a list is available? I have ruled out the 5.9 Cummings as it is a sae 3.

The reason I want to reuse the original trans is the brake and clutch pedals are mounted to the plate that is between the bellhousing and the trans. Thanks in advance. Mike

Have you thought of an adaptor plate?

Mike, What vehicle are you working on? what is the original engine? Detroit Diesel made several two stroke diesels with SAE #1 flywheel housings. About the smallest that you can use in automotive application would be a 4-71. With a turbocharger it could be comparable to a 5.9 Cummins. Waukesha certainly built automotive engines that could be had with SAE #1 flywheel housings. The 817 cubic inch engine found in several fire trucks comes to mind. I have seen SAE adapters used before, but usually they are to adapt a smaller transmission bellhousing to a larger flywheel housing, not the other way around. I am curious what transmission you have that is SAE #1. Is it an old Brown Lipe?

K-tron, I'm working on a 28 Gramm with a continental 15h 6 cylinder and a fuller ru-16 transmission.

Most gas and many medium diesels (even the 6-71) used #2. Big Bore diesels use #1. Many can be had with a range of sizes but one particular size is most common and finding the odd size is hard.

A 30 McCord catalog lists Cont'l 14H/HA, 15H and 16H with the same gasket set, incl ONE 6 cyl head gasket, the 16H shown as 43/4x53/4....
A 42 McCord catalog doesn't list the 14H/HA or the 15H; it does list the 16H, again as 43/4x53/4, BUT with TWO head gaskets (pairs of three)...=
NOR DO the individual gaskets listed match any of the 1930 gaskets listed...(???)...
However, the latter 16H is also the Brockway 36B...worth a call to the Brockway Club to see if they have an engine, and, if so, compatible??
