    AK do one. It's not cheap though.

    You could try in Johannesburg (!) at Gilo BG01L38, http://www.giloeng.com/adapterparts.htm
    But your shipping could kill the deal.

    make sure your getrag box has the removable bell housing. I used the AK kit and also agree it fitted well. It was about 300 quid a few years ago and came with centralising disk, needle roller bearing and clutch sleeve. You will also need (if you havent already) Chevy bell housing a Real Steel 3 piece clutch kit. Also clutch fork and pivot ball, slave cylinder. Make sure you know how many teeth your fly wheel has 153 or 168, as your bell and starter will need to match (google Tom Parsons article on Chevy fly wheels and starters). Dalloway Conversions in Australia used to make a Chevy bell for about 450 quid that fitted directly to a Getrag 265 but ony for a 153 fly 10.5 inch clutch. Mine all went together surprisingly easy. I had to order a bronze bush bearing for the back of the engine as the needle bearing in the kit did not fit my old 283 small blk. I then had to have a couple of thou taken off the new bronze bush before I could bash it in to the hole. Also measure up where the new gear stick will fall once it is all assembled, on the Sumo I had to make up an extension bracket to bring the stick 6 inches further back or you hit your knuckles on the dash when you change gear. Hope this helps.
