Default Please help with my restoration!

I drive my dad's old original 87 d150 and it is a huge blessing. However I blew the motor and my mechanic said when we drop the engine we bent the bell housing and broke some shaft on the trans. My best friend is the one who is working on the truck for me and it is not a daily driver. He said to have the trans rebuilt which I sent out and to get a new bell housing. The problem is locating one! I have called junkyards and trans shops around the country and have no luck. I am new to this but am I wrong in assuming that there must be a company that makes aftermarket parts for older trucks? I have the a833 trans and that is the bell housing I need. It is the 3.7L. Any help or direction would be a huge blessing. Thanks for your time!

Copart. I've also seen places on Internet that can locate parts from around country besides copart. You might even look into earlier years.

A quick eBay search turned up 3 slant 6 bellhousings on the first page of listings. The parts are getting rare, but they're not gone yet. Also, aftermarket companies make performance bellhousings. Also, Brewer's Performance lists a refurbished truck application for $150 bucks.

Give them a call, can probably guide you in the right direction.
