Anyone know what the bolt pattern is for the F227 continental? I need to repower my bobcat and just cannot see myself putting another one in with those motors being harder to get parts for and the blocks being too thin they cannot be rebuilt. Mine we check the gas and fill it up with oil and water.

Is there a chart showing what industrial motors have what bolt patterns

Search sae bell housing chart. That should give you a place to start measuring from. Most industrial engines have on of the standard bell housings.

Agree with above. SAE patterns are round. My guess is No. 4. But that is only half the problem, what about the flywheel?
