I just bought an S-182 with a bd308. It’s frozen right now and I’m trying to get it broken loose. FWIW the front of the engine is mounted on the front crossmember under the timing cover. I think the back uses the transmission for support. There’s a separate cover under the flywheel that exposes half of the flywheel and clutch. Not a normal bell housing. I’m super new to this so I don’t really know how to label this but I’d be happy to take pictures or measurements or whatever.
Fingers crossed I can get this sucker running.
if someone knows where to look for parts for these, I’d be happy to know about it.
