Ok, what does it take to swap a C4/C6 into a 69 cougar with a 302 and FMX.
That pic seems familiar, have you posted it before by chance????
This car has a FMX behind a 545-inch 460-stroker by using a tallblock 351M/FMX bellhousing. This pic is with a 484 or 466. It was originally an 351C-2V / FMX car and he's kinda stubborn since 'everyone who knows anything' says an FMX is junk... Guess what. The trans is holding up just fine!!!
I had a FMX that came in my 72 Mach I. When I souped up the motor and added gears I also put in a shift kit and installed a Fairbanks 2500 stall converter. I wasn't happy with the stall and the looooooong dragged out shifts at full throttle.The Fmx i had originally in my 70 took the beating of a lifetime and still shifted smoothly.I went with a rebuilt 69 fmx after cause of a trade i did with some fellow cougar friend of mine.I couldn`t get the tranny to shift in all 3 gears in drive so i had to start from low 1 to 2 then to D. I tried everything that the experts said to do, after so many things i gave up and had a spare 70 fmx rebuilt. When i went to go pick it up from the overhaul i gave them the 69 as a gift. The 70 fmx now has a shift kit and a rebuilt stall speed and it shifts nice and has a little snap to it when it shifts to 2nd.
the fmx is heavy yes i agree but if theres nothing wrong with it keep it and just do something with the motor.
