The '56 140 I purchased came without engine/trans/drive train. Also engine mounts were removed from the frame. Previous owner had inserted a chevy engine. I am attempting to return it to an XK engine installation. My dilemma is I have a rebuilt engine from a 65 3.4 S type and I am trying to determine what modifications I will need to do to make that work. I realize the bell housings between a 140 and an S type are different, mechanical clutch vs hydraulic. Does anyone know if the BH for a 140 will fit on the S type engine?
If not I may need to go to a hydraulic throw out bearing with the S type BH.
I have a 140 transmission, does anyone know if it will mate up properly with the S type BH?
There are other possible issues such as the wider oil sump on the S type engine, which may interfere with the exhaust pipes, but one problem at a time.
Thanks for your consideration.
Trans on engine is from S-type
