Ford BW Cast Iron T-10 questions..

I have a Borg Warner Cast Iron T-10, and I need some info, will this tranny work behind a stout 460? Is there a bellhousing that will work with this application? Thanks,


Tim

It should work. If it is for sure ford on the bell housing side, it should fit a 460 manual bell housing. The spline count will determine disc type.

Most companies that make scatter shields will have the correct pattern to bolt that tranny up.

You have eaten your wheaties, haven't you? That should be a slightly heavy tranny.

Yeah, pretty hefty....

90 lbs according to my scales, I was told the cast iron case was considerably stronger, although I was looking for a top loader I found this T-10, and yes, it is a Ford trans, someone also told me some of the parts may interchange, but I really dont know for sure..

Ford pattern T-10s and toploaders can be interchanged in vehicles. The yolks fit too. Not much else else crosses over.

Count the number of teeth on the output spline, the stronger Ford BW T-10s had a 28 tooth count. The earlier Ford BW T10 had 22-23 tooth count(not sure on exact tooth #) but I know the earlier T10 wasn't as strong as the later version. The earlier Ford BW T10 had a tendency to break the rear output shaft if too much power was ran through them. I have read that the aluminum cased Shelby Mustang T10 was the strongest of the Ford BW T10s. I find it hard to believe that a aluminum case would be stronger than a cast iron case manual trans, but this is just my opinion.
