New from Oregon

Feel free to introduce yourself. No obligation off course, but a nice way to get known to you a little. It's allways good to know your first name. Jeff or John sounds better than, "hey linc58prm2_1......"

New from Oregon

Ended up with a '67 462 and trans that was running and driving with a failing water pump. The plan is to dress it like a '58 Edsel and use in a period 1964 Era Gasser. On here to learn as much as possible about these cool engines!

Hello Fordman,
Sounds like cool project. Keep an eye on this forum for a 61-68 430/462 to manual transmission bell housing. As far as I know nothing has materialized yet but there is one on the table.

I was wondering if the 66-68 had a BBF C6 bolt pattern, can you bolt up any manual bellhousing?

462s have the 61-65 pattern cast into it but some are factory tapped for a C-O-M to bolt up to it and some are not. I do not know why that is. The one in draft will likely be a C-O-M pattern (to accommodate 61-65 MELs) with a provision for the 462 bolt on ear under the starter. To me the April 68-70? 460 looks identical to the 66-March 68 MEL with the exception of the 3 bolt MEL starter vs the 2 bolt 460 starter. Never had the two transmissions side by side.
