    engine swap

    Its been along time since I've played with any old fords. I can't remember if the bell-housing bolt patterns are the same or not between a 351c and a 351w? If they are different can I swap bell-housings or do I have to use engine and trans? I've got a 73 mach with a blown 351cj, I want to put the engine out of my 69 Cougar 351w in it. Also, am i going to run into motor mount problems? Its been about 20 years since I've done any engine swaps on old fords, but it seem like I ran into some problems when I did it. I think I tried to put a 351c in place of a 351m and it didn't have the same bolt pattern for the trans. Any help to make this a smooth swap would be nice, I'm shure alot of guys on this site have done this swap or a reverse swap.

    Also, if I have to drop engine and trans, what kind of drive shaft issues will I have? If you can't post on this site you can E-mail me at: gconnsr@msn.com

    Smile No worries!

    Same bellhousing and frame mounts for 351W and 351C, but you'll have issues with water pump outlet location (driver's side vs passenger side), but proper model water pumps will fix that small matter.
