- Buick 225 & 231 V6
Note: This adapter plate kit only fits T-18 / T-98 transmission with a input shaft stick out of 9-3/8”
With our adapter plates, we utilize a new front bearing retainer to obtain proper bell housing alignment. Chevy adapter plates we use a small index of 4.686”, (the larger index retainer, P/N 716051, can be substituted for the 5.125” bell housing).
The T-18 is a heavy duty four speed with unsynchronized first gear. These transmissions were manufactured by Borg Warner and they have a cast iron case. The casting number on the drivers side of the T-18 is T-18 or 13-01. The T-18 has a 1 1/8" 10 spline input shaft and a 1 3/8" 6 spline output.
The T-98 has a very similar appearance to the T-18 except a casting number of T98. It is heavy duty like the T-18. The T-98 has a 1 1/16" 10 spline input shaft and 1 3/8" 6 spline output.
Note: T-18 / T-98 with the 1 3/8 diameter input shaft cannot be used with our adapter plate kits.
