Re: manual flywheel in an auto bellhousing


A manual transmission flywheel is a normal requirement for an engine dyno. A bellhousing should not be required for the dyno test. Most automatic transmissions do not have a separate bellhousing, so I'm not sure what you have been looking at.
The early Hemi's used an aluminum plate between the engine and transmission. The starter bolts to this plate. It doesn't matter whether a flywheel or flexplate is used, the starter stays in the same place. This should be all you need for the dyno test.
The same thing applies if you will be using a modern transmission. If so, you will need a transmission adapter plate. The starter will mount to this plate. Buy an adapter plate kit for whatever transmission you intend to use. The kit will probably require a "late model" starter.
Good luck,
Bill
