crossflow into non-crossflow car
I'm currently driving a stocko XT falcon with the original 221 I-6 engine. It got quite hot a while back, and although it's running ok, it's beginning to use oil at an exponential rate, so it possibly may need a rebuild depending on what the problem's found to be
I have a standard 250 x-flow from my XE project, and what I'm wondering is how easy it would be to swap the two on a temporary measure. I've heard the x-flows are a bolt in swap, but I want to keep as much of the XT running gear as possible, including the 3-on-the-tree gearbox, if I do go with the swap. I don't want to do a big job for a temporary set up. Does the x-flow bolt up to the non-x-flow bell housing? I do have a spare single-rail, but would rather not have to cut a hole in the floor and buy buckets, for the sake of originality.
I'm assuming a few people would be familiar with swapping these engines, I'd be interested in hearing from you
