    351 ?

    Hi is there a quick easy way to identify this engine as a 351? It maybe for sale and I was told it’s a 351, but the seller wasn’t sure. It’s in a 80’s Fairlane, a special model I think it’s called a Cartier but I’m not sure. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks I like it the idea of modding my Current 3 speed bell housing. I’m thinking the 4 speed my have a different input shaft spline. A 4speed clutch plate may fit my current 3 speed pressure plate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ve assumed the T5 was a lot longer to the stick ? and would be a drama with the bench seat so I hadn’t considered the T5. My diff at 3.23 : 1 is great on the open road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Hi all, I’m new to this place it’s only my second ever post. I’ve got a XY , 6cyl 250 pre cross flow car, that’s 3 speed column manual,bench seat. I’m looking for info and tips on converting it to a 4 speed single rail. I’ve got some questions... Is it worthwhile doing? Will it drive better? My hydro clutch and fork is on the passenger side, can I keep my existing bell housing and all internals , clutch and flywheel etc? Do I need to mod the tailshaft length? Gear lever clearance near the bench seat all ok? Speedo drive/cable mods? Other than the box , what other parts do I need? Any info or tips would be appreciated. If anyone’s got a good single rail box for sale ,I heard the Cortina box is better ? please pm me. Happy to pay freight also. Thank you OLM8 PS it’s just a cruiser, patina paint, original car, nothing fancy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
