Multi Block Bellhousings

Hello again,need some education from you all.Am planning to drop a 231 V-6 into my 84 chevy p/up.Have a turbo 350 tranny in it now and thought it would bolt up no prob.Well the man who has the motor asked me if the tranny was a multi block bell housing.Well my friends I have done alot of engine and tranny swaps but this is a new one on me.I dont mean to sound stupid but I am troubled with this curve ball thrown my way.Is this somthing only with V-6s or what? He said this has to do with the motor being used in olds,pont,buick all being GM and multi use.Have any of you been up against this before? I guess I was lucky with past swaps Ive done.Never stepped down before to a six banger.All input greatly accepted.Thanks.

Hey Yankee, I've seen several of those, they fit the chev. pattern along with the olds, pont. cad. buick, same trans, just the bellhousing is drilled for all engines, you may have seen them also and thought they were the pont, olds style.

Guess I'll have to check out mine.Do they have an adapter kit in case it isent a multi block or need to get a trans for it.The man said he has the trans that goes with the motor,extra $50.00.
