  • Toploader question

    I have an opportunity to buy a toploader locally, HEH-CL came out of a '66 390 Fairlaine. Are the tailshaft housings interchangable? I've only seen pictures of this trans, but looks like the shifter mounting bosses are too far forward for a Mustang. Are the tailshaft housings interchangable?

    How about input shaft dimensions? FE motors any different than Windsors?

    A 390 has a shorter input shaft length. It can be swapped out for a SBF with the correct gear ratio or you can use a special truck designed pilot bushing (not performance recommended.) All internal parts are the same as a SBF.

    The tailshaft should be the correct length. The housing can be easily swapped for one from a Mustang or Cougar. You would probably be better off to continue looking unless you get this tranny as a steal.

      Thank you Dennis, great info

      Compared to Ebay prices as of late, it is a steal. Again... I haven't seen it yet, but unless it's a pile of metal shards in a box I'll probably nab it.

        Heck you could always resell it and get exactly what you need.

            I had liberty convert a big spline close ratio input shaft to a fit a small block and wide ratio. They welded a tip extension to fit the small blocks. It actually looks alot stronger than a stock tip. I had a local shop modd and fix inputs before but they are long gone, but just letting you know a tip extension is possible.
