Default A and AA flywheel castings

I have several flywheel cover castings for Model As and they have the side mount provisions for the frame mounts. I also have what I think is an AA flywheel cover and bell housing, with a socket on the bottom for the wishbone ball and the flange for a truck 4 speed transmission. but it does not seem to have side mount provisions like those on a car's casting. Is it supposed to bolt to the car-type casting, or what?

The AA uses the same flywheel housing as the A, the picture is an AA clutch housing.

No Ford tractor ever used a Model A engine or bell housing. There were some aftermarket tractors such as the Worthington mowers that used regular Model A stuff and industrial/agricultural power units based on the A but no Ford factory built tractors based on the A.

I have always called that housing the bell housing which is bolted to the clutch or flywheel housing which has the mounting attachments to the frame.

It is likely for later then Model A. The 4 speed transmission was used for 30 years, but had different clutch housings for each year it was used. If you posted a photo, I could likely identity it for you.

I've always called it a bell housing also but Ford called it a clutch housing 7501.
