Ford transmission switch

Thanks for the replies to my engine switch. I heard what I wanted to hear. Next question: I have a 68 Ford straight 6 bolted to a C4 trans. Will this trans (C4) bolt up to a 88 5.0 (302) engine?

Actually it depends on which straight 6 engine it is on. If it is the large six(300 CId) they use the same bell housing. If it is the small six that was used in the cars(200 CID) it has a different bell housing and convertor. Easiest way to tell is to look at where the starter bolts.

Question 1969 302 Engine add-ons

Ok all. Here's my first post to this board. I figured it might go along with this thread, so I am dropping my message here...

I am buying a rebuilt 1969 302 engine (mostly ready to go), which I have not purchased ANYTHING else yet as far as drive-train, flexplate, starter, clutch parts, and so on.

I am performing a drivetrain swap on a '74 TVR 2500M, which to you all is a British sports car about to be turned Hot Rod... It has the Triumph TR6 engine in it right now, using a mechanical clutch setup.

My goal is to use a late-model T-5 WC Borg Warner / Tremec for my transmission. The engine & trans swap has been done before by others, so this is not new. I am concerned about matching the right parts to this engine when it comes to the rest of the drive-train.

What is the correct set of parts I should buy for this in regards to clutch, flex-plate, bellhousing, and so forth?

Should I back out of this deal and find myself a later model 5.0 HO instead?

Thanks,

Steve
