1200 Transmission swap, 56 to 60

18 April 2017 - 09:50 AM

So, I tried a search for this and after 6 pages i really came up with nothing.
I am swapping a 60A trans into my 1200 and almost all of the questions have been answered but one.  On the A14 motor that this trans came off of, there is a plate that goes inbetween the block and trans and it is about "1/8 thick.  On the 1200, there is just a thin dust plate that attaches to the front of the bellhousing and covers below where the block meets the bellhousing/ trans.  Both transmissions measure out to be the same length.  Once I had the original trans out of the 1200 i was thinking about using the thin dustshield that was matched to the 56 trans because it appears that some of the holes have been made larger in order for it to mount to the 60A.
Anyone have any ideas about this or possibly have run across this before?
The plate on the left side matches to the 56 4spd and the one on the right matches to the 60A 5spd.
