    Does ANYBODY out there have a drawing of the 215 bell housing pattern? I don't care if it's a sketch on a napkin, just something with accurate dimensions. I have searched everywhere and come up with nothing. It would be much appreciated!

    Let me check with my brother. He just built a 198 for a guy (1962 Skylark) and if he has not delivered the engine, I'll see if he will get the drawing and dimensions. I should be able to get and answer this morning.

    He told me he will do it tonight.

    I'll post it as soon as I get it. :)

    I really appreciate the time and effort you put into that. There isn't anything easy about measuring this, that's for sure.
    From my understanding:
    top section is horizontal center-center of the hole pairs.
    middle section is referenced to the crank center line.
    bottom is center to center from hole to hole.
    Correct?

    My brother says:
    "At the top of the page "cross" is each set of holes center to center of themselves. Top 2nd, 3rd, bottom. Then Centerline is from the casting spine of the top of the bellhousing which is true centerline. That centerline is from that point thru the centerline of the converter hub. Then the measurements are left and right referenced from center to each hole center."

    Tell him I said thanks. I started drawing it in autocad, and most of the dimensions have agreed, so it's a good start.

    Are those dimensions the same for the Olds 215 engine/hydro?

    Yes. The BOPR 215 share the same block and all have common bell bolt pattern.
