FMX behind a 400??

i know there are a few 400 blocks that had the smallblock clevo bellhousing, but anyway just want to know if anywhere makes a bellhousing to put the FMX behind a 400?? or an adaptor or something? everyone is allways whinging and whining about the C6 being too heavy, and robbing the RWHP figures, but i have a good FMX that i would use if it was possible, (and if i get the engine as opposed to rebuilding a 351)
cheers

Don't know if there is anything available for a FMX but there is for Top loaders.

Try www.rodshop.com.au they may have something or at least make one up for you.

not really interested in buying clutches and replacing diffs..... hehehe

yeah i was actually going ro ring the rodshop tomorrow and ask, i think the FMX will handle a 400 just fine, i have never had a drama with the one that is behind the 351 now, and i have 4 others....
cheers

They would, you know, you got me thinking, I was going the toploader path but really wanted an auto.
The C6 was the only option which I feel is a bit big for a 400 the FMX may be the way to go let me know if you find anything.

Anyone else think the FMX is a good or bad idea?

Re: FMX behind a 400??

There is a factory bellhousing to fit an FMX to a BigBlock pattern..I have one..They would be rare here in Oz though.They do pop up occasionally on Ebay...
I am about to hook up an FMX to a 460 stroker ..
The FMX handled a supercharged clevo fine and shifted nice and solid so the B.B or for your 400 i'm sure will be fine

i was told there was one made, but no one seems to be able to tell me where to look, would probably pay to import one if the bellhousing its self was cheap

Like a few engine import places here i called about a factory C4 to BB bell...I was told they dont exist...
I got my C4 one shipped from Jay at www.broaderperformance.com . He specialises in Ford automatics and might be able to help you out..
