Hey there from Warm Springs GA

Post #1 by Jimmys61falcon » Wed Dec 25, 2019 7:52 am

I have a 61 Falcon 4 door wagon that currently has a '66 170 in it with a Comet bellhousing (I believe I have a C7ZA-6394-A) and clutch in it. Behind that is an SROD 4 speed (speed with OD) from an 81 ford pickup. I am in the process of researching and compiling parts to install a T5 (I pulled one from a 94 Mustang v6 donor) behind a 200. I would like to reuse the bellhousing and clutch if possible to help with cost. I am looking at which 200 will work for me and seems that 67+ is the way to go but still trying to make sure. I plan to put a Weber 32/36 as this will be my daily driver and maybe trips back to MI to see family. I am looking for best solutions for the head. I am seeing that the large log heads after 77 are best but since I am really not looking to make big HP I wonder if that is really needed. I see a number of folks have done similar on here so any advice is very welcome.

That is a pretty nice ride wagons were always a favorite of mine. There is lots of info on this forum on the T5 swap and helpful members. The Falcon Performance Handbook is a good source for head info. Over the years the heads changed with more flow etc. Start looking for a later 200 now as they are becoming harder to find.
66 Bronco-1970 250, NV3550, DSII, 4 turn ps, uncut, 1" bl, 2.5" sl, front disc, twin stick D 20, 30 x 9.50
NEXT- direct mount 1.08 on D8 head, power brakes, rear limited slip, 3G, electric fan, electric upgrades, custom curved DSII, header, 31" tires

New guy? Get the Falcon Performance Handbook and Ford six high performance parts from https://vintageinlines.com
