Again why can't ya change to the 352 pump and dizzy shaft? Than the 352 dizzy would fit. As I think the 391 is a bigger shaft. Cam and dizzy gear should be the same. If it is a 390 it should fit unless somome changed the pump and shaft out of an FT391.

391 is the smaller shaft. Just ordered a control box from summit. should be more reliable than points anyway. I will pick it up monday in reno.

Must be dizzy day here on FTE.

D2TF-12127-MA = D2TZ-12127-M = 1972 F100/350 360/390 C-6 or manual transmission. This is a POINT type dizzy.

Difference between 1965/71 dizzies: One piece point plate (replaces two piece on earlier dizzys), different weights, vacuum advance. The shaft on this dizzy is DIFFERENT from the D5TE dizzy.

I thought an "FT" block had a larger dizzy hole? Wasn't there a bushing you could make/buy to adapt a std FE dizzy in it's place?

Just thinking out loud. Never have seen a FT block personally so I an curious.

Yeah, the dizzy hole in the FT block is bigger, that's why i was kinda wondering if he wasn't trying to drop an FT distributor into an FE block, as in maybe the first motor was an FT and this one is now an FE.

but since the numbers on the dizzy are FE numbers, who knows.

not me but the parts house matched it up size wise with the ft which is why it would not fit in the fe. the whole engine setup is a mess. I cant say i got taken as I only paid 800 for the truck and it is pretty straight but the engine was not what they said it was.

So was the engine in the truck when you bought it was an FT?

If so don't think you got taken, the block is probably worth something to a guy wanting to do a hipo build as is the crank if it's forged. They're both really stout pieces.

I wonder if someone built a super-FE from an FT shortblock?

Is it possible to use the the FT distributor shaft with the FE dizzy body and have it all fit with an FE intake?

I wouldn't just throw that "352" away. While it might be a 361/391, if the distributor mic's up the same, even the part that sits in the intake hole, but the hole in the block is bigger, it's definitely not just a 361/391 thrown in there and bolted up. It's mix-and-match, and might contain some interesting parts
