yeah,tey sure are heavy.I just put one in my 55 willys truck.I wanted another 4spd but couldnt find the one i needed for less than 3 bills,then i still needed a clutch kit and flywheel,But the time i had it all apid for i was looking at nearly 700 dollars.But i had the fmx sitting there,i never paid a dime for it.And it came out of a 79 mercury cougar along with the 302 i also put in my truck both were factory rebuilds.So i decided to use the fmx due to money issues.I got alot of flak about switching from a standard to an fmx.Like i said,My dad and i have always run fords and never had trouble with any automatics.I was just curious that maybe we had gotten lucky all these years and everyone else thought fmx were junk.For a truck i would prefer a standard but money talks and i couldnt justify 700 bucks when i had a nice rebuilt fmx just sitting on a rack not being used
