I am hoping to get info from someone here about this trans. I have a chance to get one of these reasonably priced. My main question is what are the restraints of torque these trannies can handle? Will they bolt up to a FE motor? this trans is out of a 52' Merc. automobile. I have a pic of it in my gallery.
I know there are other trans out there for the FE but, I want the O/D. Which is why I am posting my question here.
Mister Postmaster, I have posted this question in the tanny forum also, with really no help. Please don't reroute this post. Thank you.
Tim, thank you very much for for reply; and for your understanding on "wanting to mix and match Ford parts."
I will begin the journey down the road of the "T5's or mid-80's 4spd OD".
My newly rebuilt 390 should have in the neighborhood of 400 torque, according to D2000.
That said, I have ask my tranny guy about the ZF's and he replied not to do it, because of the torque.
Thanks again Tim for your reply and valuable information.
