Chevy SM465 to Cummins B series adapter kit


Bell housing adapter kit combining the Chevy SM465 to Cummins B series.


Chevy SM465 to Cummins adapter kit:

This adapter kit bolts the Cummins 4bt or Cummins 6bt to the Chevy truck SM465 4 speed transmission.

The value of this Chevy 6bt kit is it bolts directly to the 1994 to 2007 Dodge flywheel housing; adapter, from the Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks.  The 1989 to 1993 flywheel housing will not work.

If you are bolting this bell housing to a 1989 to 2002 6BT or any year mechanical 4BT you will need this Cummins Adapter.

If you are bolting this bell housing the the 2003 to 2007 Commonrail 5.9 Cummins you will need this Adapter.

Our Chevy SM465 to Cummins Diesel Conversion kit uses the Dodge Starter and the 1994 Chevy 1 ton Clutch; Part #K70188-01HD, both off the shelf parts from AutoZoneThe clutch cover must be rounded on the edge, not the square edge style.  Compared to the Cummins 4bt bread van adapter plate that retains the factory bell housing this kit moves the starter to the drivers side for more exhaust clearance.  Recommend using both the master and slave combination from a 1999 Jeep Wrangler 4.0.  This has been proven to work with simply modifying the connection from master cylinder rod to clutch pedal and using  one washer approx .080″ thick top and bottom between the bell and slave.

This is not a complete installation kit but includes the everything needed to bolt the Chevy SM465 to Cummins 4bt or 6bt turbo diesel engines.  This product is helps all the Chevy 6bt Swappers who both need the shorter design or already have the transmission.  Depending on clutch kit used the QDB clutchfork may need ground to clearance the clutch cover.

  • Bell housing kit for the early Chevy 6bt swap
  • Flywheel drilled for the Chevy SM465 Clutch Pattern with oiled bronze pilot bushing
  • HD clutch fork, pivot ball, and throw out bearing.
