PANTERA & MONGUSTA ZF TRANSAXLE

 

The ZF transaxle was designed to handle a V8. It has the advantage of already being a mid-engine transaxle with gearing suitable for a V8.

Our Chevy V6, V8 or Buick V6, to ZF adapter is a 4" thick heavy duty aluminum bellhousing made to house the Chevy/Buick flywheel, clutch and starter. It comes with a pilot bearing, clutch release bearing, bolts and installation instructions. Some machining of the release bearing collar is required. NOTE: That all bellhousings can be made inverted if specified when ordered.
