M5OD-R1HD Bellhousing Bolt Pattern

I am doing a motor swap, but I need to know the bolt pattern of the bellhousing, so I can make an adapter plate. Does anyone know the bolt pattern for my trans. For reference the truck is a 2002 FX4. Thanks

The block plate between your Ranger engine and transmission has the bolt pattern. To make an adapter plate, you'd also have to figure out where the exact crank center is in relation to that pattern.

I dont think the M5 is worth trouble.

I didn't realize the dust cover went all the way around. Do you know if there is a hole in the center I would be able to measure off of? I could get it measured at work pretty accurately.

VW ALH 1.9L tdi out of a 2000 Jetta. Its not there for power, more so I can drive it every day and not go bankrupt, so the 5 speed should be fine.

I just hoping you weren't doing the 4bt as it would chew up that m5.

I have never heard of anyone making an adapter for the m5 so info will be hard to come by. On any of these forums, I think you posted elsewhere too.

IMHO, I would entertain using a Toyota's using the 22R style 4 or 5 speed transmission from 1979-1995. Just because the adapter already exists.

I can buy an adapter but the one I've found is expensive. If I could find the bolt pttern I could make my own on the cheap.

Why don't you make a template off the engine.

The motor and trans are still in the truck and I would like to keep them there until I am ready to do the swap, since the garage and storage space are at different locations. I also want to model it up in CAD so I can get something made accurately and make it again, if need be.

I really doubt anyone here has the measurements you need.

Gonna have to pony up and either use your combo and take longer or get a junk yard engine combo to work with. Unless buying that adapter sounds cheaper.
