AOD

Yes, it fits, but you have to clock the trans a little to avoid the Cross Flow's lower block flange, which is a heck of a lot bigger than the 3.03/2.77 block from the US high mount 200's, 170's and 144's. Just three degrees or so.

This is exactly what the AOD to 429/460 or FE conversions do, they have the same issue.


There is a common Ford LIMA OHC 2.3 cylinder to SBF adaptor, the link is http://www.cididit.com/adaptor_plate.htm, you grab it,

and use it to make an Aussie I6 to SBF adaptor.

I developed one for Texan Econoline64, a more patient and knoble guy you'll never meet, but got into the crap with work load and was unable to ship.


Anyone who works logistics will understand.


I learned the lesson Big Al and others did in the early days of Ford six....everyone wants an overdrive, but its a logistical issue when you want to add something Ford never did.


These these days, you just talk with a CNC machinist, and then plot the bolt holes and you just make a plate, and a crank adaptor pilot, and your golden. I'd spend the 184 buxs plus packing, and trial fit the OHC 2.3 Ford adaptor on your X flow, and get an idea of how to do it.

I make a crank adaptor pilot in New Zealand for my conversions, its about 65 bucks shipped. The US aluminum plate Canfield 2.3 to SBF block plate adaptor is basically the same as what I use; but I use steel

Read Jacks advice...

There is a bit to it, but some Caterpiller 7/16 crank bolts, and some native American smarts, and you'll do it.

The Pioneer Y code 4.9 164 teeth automatic F truck (F100/F150) AOD or C5 flexplate used to be like 35 bux .

ATP Automotive Z-274 Automatic Transmission Flywheel Flex-Plate would work.

or used

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1976-1996-FORD- ... 2358395052



or the rare NOS 1981 to 1983 3.3 low mount 164 teeth flexplate (the Grey B or X code engines with C5 autos). The FoMoCo Basic Part Number is E1BP-6375-AA, but each of the six bolts needs to be sloted to suit the 3" bolt pitch.



Either one, they are both neutral balance, not 28 oz, not 50 oz
