Yes there is. Out of the 4 holes one is in the same location though. This allows you to drill/tap the bellhousing to suit the other as the 1 bolt and input shaft retainer allign the gearbox/bellhousing.

I would suppose so but would definitely check with Dellow. This works with the V8 factory bell housings but I am unsure with the V6(what type?) Anyway I would think it would be no hassle for Dellow to supply the casting drilled for a toploader instead of a single rail if it is possible. CRS also supply castings. They are generally all aluminum due to the casting process.

No worries it sounds like you have done some homework. The Toploader bolt pattern is further out than the Single rail. If the custom bellhousing is built specifically for the single rail it may not have enough meat around it for the toploader threads. I would wait and see what information Dellow comes back with.

If that is the casting they produce then it would be suitable. The toploader is the three outer holes plus the other. The single rail is the three inner holes plus the other.

It would be best to get them to drill and tap it though; could prevent any missallignment. Preferrably get it drilled/tapped for both Single rail and toploader as it gives the options.
