223 to y block conversion



Im running a 223 that for the time being will be my rods motivation. Since i am into the vintage/nostalgia scene, i was looking to eventually swap a ford Y block into my model a. Will these motors bolt right up to my 3 speed manual? Seems wasteful to have so many bolt patterns with a simple engine option. Let me know any thoughts. Thanks!

How does that 223 do in your rod? I am wondering as I have rebuilt the one in my truck, with some speed equipment and it moves right along. As for the bellhousing I have heard that it would be a bolt on swap, but I have not tried it. Sorry that I can't be more help.

Take Care,
the car is still being built, but all it needs now is the motor to be dropped in and final wiring and paint. the 223 is stock except for a CLifford header and an Offy 3 carb intake. It should move just fine. its the complete driveline out of a 1956 ford f100 (motor to diff).
If you get around to it, post a couple of pictures of that setup.

It sounds pretty. :)
