Re: 356 cuin SWAP to 359 cuin

How do I tell the R9 from the R11?
Will the fact the 359 was set up for an automatic make much of a difference? It seems to have a full flywheel, albeit without a surface for the friction plate to ride on. Would that swap with the 282 flywheel, or did that change when they went to 288/327 etc.?
What about bellhousing pattern? The 359 has like an aluminum thing around the flywheel, 356 seems to have the bellhousing straight to the block.

Hi, I'm new to all this forum stuff, used to Facebook Groups mostly.

Anyway, I just did some automotive reclamation and ended up with both a 1948 356 with the Overdrive manual trans, and a 359 that used to have an automatic. It's all getting stuffed into my 1940 120, but would like to put the 359 in it. Any progress on swapping the trans over? Anything I should expect in doing doing so myself?
