Bell housing is a term for the portion of the transmission that covers the flywheel and the clutch or torque converter of the transmission on vehicles powered by internal combustion engines. Bell housing is an irremovable part of the transmission case.
Bell housing is bolted to the engine and gets its name from the bell like shape that its internal components necessitate. The starter motor is usually mounted here, and engages with a ring gear on the flywheel. Bell housing is the removable part of the transmission case.
