It should bolt up to the 260. Just make sure it's an AOD and not an AODE trans. Is the 260 still in a Falcon? Haven't seen one of those in a while.

it should bolt right up. if it came from a 5.0 and has the right belhousing. the 260 is the same family as a 302. Im pretty sure they didnt change the bolt pattern. I could be wrong though.

The 221, 260, and early 289's had a 5 bolt bellhousing. The later model ( 65-on small blocks) had 6, and won't interchange. Phil

What?! Hey guess what gordon, the 260 is a v8. Ford made 5 windsor v8s that were the 221, 260, 289, 302, and 351. This guy's abviously talking about the second one. Ford used them before the 289, 302, and 351 were even created.

When you mention 5 and 6 bolt patterns are you talking about the transmission bolting to the bellhousing or the bellhousing bolting to the engine.

Tom is right. You can get a 5 bolt belhousing to fit the C4. Kind of rare, I got one from mustang ranch in WA. and sent it back. Would you like to by an original 64 1/2 289, cheap? The best you can do is the C4 or fordomatic. I changed engine and all. good luck.
