confused T-10 in Australia

Hello Fordophiles,
Did Ford aust use Borg Warner T-10's in any of their local cars? If so what?

Nope...only early U.S. cars used the T10. when the Toploader began production they stopped using it. '66 was about the last time it was used. The Toploader is the better gearbox and all that was used here apart from the Borg Warner single rail.

Apart from strength, why is the Toploader the better box? I've heard different thats all.

Strength is the main reason they are better. The T10 is certainly lighter than a Toploader which is good because when you have to fix it it's easier to take out.
Doug Nash(now Richmond gear) used to make a Super T10 which is vastly superior to the std one. Expensive though and still no stronger than a Loader. If you going to spend that kind of money you may as well go for the Richmond 5spd or a Jerico 4 or 5spd based on the toploader.
I will likely use a Richmond 5spd behind the 390 in my '69 Cougar.
