250 I6 need info on tranny

Hi I'm new here. I have a 1965 ford mustang engine code t=200 cid. when I bought it it had a 250 cid casting #D8BE? D8=78 last 2 letters not shure of. it had a 3 speed non-sync standard trans. shreded it over a couple of years. whats the best and cheapest way to go. I have a 66 bell housing C60A-6394C that bolts to the block but I don't have a tranny that matches the off-set 4 bolt bellhousing pattern. would it be easier to just get a 4 speed that would bolt onto the 250 I6? and which one would fit? any info would help, thank you

Sintech,
your obviously from the states. An XF is an australian Car.
Talk to your local mustang dealers about T5 conversions.
If your not into originality, they are the way to go...esp on a 6 pot.
IF you can't get T5's to suit a 6 pot in the US, then you can here in Oz.
You may need to export one, and if you talk to the right person, you can get one with the correct bell housing. The only problem, is that out here they use a cable clutch, but Hydraulic conversions are available.

\cheers
Jas

Re: 250 I6 need info on tranny

the nice thing about the 250 is that it uses the same bell housing as the 289/302/5.0 V8's. as for a flywheel, you can use the 240/300 flywheel as it is zero balanced also. or take a 289/302/5.0/351w,c flywheel and have it zero balanced. you can then swap the T5 in with no problem.

You can tell the differnce between a 200 & 250 by the waterpump bolts.
250=4
200=3
