    The Mustang and E series V8 T5s have a 5/8" longer input shaft which suits such an adaptor but they aren't cheap either. The bastards know the troubles you can have trying to adapt the boxes to these older engines so no matter what option you choose, it won't be cheap. The other problem using that type of box is shifter location. Might not make too much difference but worth researching first. I resorted to some serious DIY on mine to fit an EA 6 cyl one and 6 years on, still going strong. Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    Probably the best way for a top finish would be to get them spun by a wheel doctor .. may cost a few sheckles more ,, but way worth it

    Blow through carb

    Im a large portion down this route in Turbo form and from NZ, the one thing ive found in NZ is everyone has gone the EFI option years ago and hardly anyone knows about blowthru carbs or there tuning. {Zero support). I was lucky to come across a demon blowthru which has had all the metering blocks and float upgrades to suit. Converting a holley to blow thru is pretty simple and a few hundy but its the tuning of this set up that eats up the money you have saved. If you got a quickfuel kit ex USA with the pump and referenced reg your away or the Oz dollar is great at the moment for tried and tested options over the ditch.
  13. I looked but couldn't find it, has any one just made a simple wedge that bolts in to correct the angle?

    Maybe ! Good thinking. I think the v8 T5 has that longer input shaft. I’m not sure of the cost of that. CRS have that adapter at half the price of a bell housing. Anyways thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Haven't done this at all, but, could you make an adapter plate.? Like a sandwich plate, 20mm thick, and then get a longer input shaft.? Just thinking out loud.

    T5 to Toploader Bell

    I know for my V8 I had to start with an old mechanical clutch toploader bell and mod that to take the T5. The single rail bell I already had (hydraulic type) had the same problem you saw with the lower bolt holes of the T5 sitting way below where the mounting face ends. If you can find a 250 hydraulic single rail housing, that might fit. Some single rail and 3 speed housings have enough mounting face on the bottom to line up with the T5. I had to turn the input bearing retainer on my T5 down by about 1.5mm to fit the locating hole in the bell. Sent from my CPH1903 using Tapatalk

    would depend if the T5 tailshaft is from a sedan or (longer wheel base such as wagon, ute/van)

    Oh yeah the XF Ute T5 box comes with a tail shaft so you never know it might fit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks mate That thread you posted was helpful but it also reminded me that I’m a long way from any welding or machine shop for milling etc I was also thinking my 250 Toploader housing is probably worth something as factory so it would be a shame to modify it. I think it’s made my mind up Cheers The XF ute box , I brought comes with tailshaft so Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    the CRS one is a lot easier, i did buy one back when Rod Hadfield was running the shop, the one i used could have either a hydraulic clutch on the left ,or the cable on the right side(leaded cars side.. ) assume this is the same bell they'd still have. not sure if you would need the tail shaft cut down, i do recall XY having a different length auto than the later ones, but you might be able to measure it and for eg, use an XF sedan tailshaft in your wagon.. just depends on length difference, and budget of coarse.

    Thanks for all that info. I also took a look at that thread you posted. To be honest ,now... I’m thinking I might buy a CRS Bell and maybe also buy the CRS g box crossmember. As I can easily fit that up myself with basic tools and probably the only outside help I need is to cut and shut my tail shaft to suit it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    found the one i had this is a single rail bell housing you may also need to do something like this for the gearbox mount

    T5 to Toploader Bell

    I was just eyeing up the, 3 speed housing and top loader housing, i have, it looked as if there isn’t enough realestate on the lower face area to allow for the lower 2 bolts of the T5. Obviously I don’t have the XF T5 here yet to be able to measure anything. I’m trying to avoid buying a CRS $$$ bell , to adapt the T5 Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    T5 to Toploader Bell

    @Thom and @gerg might be familiar with the top loader bell ? i am not, but i did hear the 3 speed bell is suited to the T5 with (from 6cyl either XF or up to EL 6cly depending on ratios wanted or strength EB onwards is stronger) single rail can also be done fairly easy .. there's a thread on here somewhere. but the basics are, machine the T5 nose diameter to suit the single rail hole, and drill new holes in the bell housing to suit and also in the gearbox face. here's a thread actually, http://www.ozfalcon.com.au/index.php?/topic/3399-the-t5-conversion-thread/
