T5 - 1965 289 Bellhousing?
OK, I just picked up the T5, really happy w/ the purchase only $75 and looks to be in great shape. Its from a Thunderbird (1352-155), I know not as strong as the Mustang T5, but Im on a buget.
My question is, do I have to buy a bellhousing from a Mustang or can a get one out of a 85-90 ford F150 that was runing a T5 and a 5.0L. Mustang bellhousings run about $75 and I know I can get one from a F150 for closer to $25. Will it work on my T-bird T5 and My 289? From what I understand the 289, 302, and 351 blocks have barley changed and bolt patterns are still the same is this true? Thanks a lot for any help!
