First off, I don't really know anything about Fords so work with me here, I only what what I have read in the last few days.
My friend has a 1962 Ford Galaxie 500 we have been working on. It has an automatic transmission.
- Original Motor unknown, was swapped to a 289 at some point
- Motor was seized
- Assumed motor was 64/65+ 6 bolt motor
- Bought a 302 to put in it
- Took out the old motor, found out it was an early 5 bolt 289
So...a few questions:
1.) How do I identify the transmission in the vehicle?
2.) What would have come from the factory with this vehicle?
3.) Would I be better off changing the transmission or just the bell housing?
4.) Is a 6 bolt bell housing available for the transmission?
Any information would be GREATLY appreciated. THANKS EVERYONE!
