I have a 351C w/ an FMX trans. I want to change it to a 4-speed manual but couldn't find any. I know the ones from the 335-series engines will not bolt directly because of bellhousing and bolt pattern issues. On what other engines can I get a 4-speed that will directly bolt-on to the Cleveland? Thanks in advance.

Someone told me that those from early Windsors will bolt-on directly! I just have to look for those with 28oz large bellhousing/flexplate units. Any thoughts? thanks.

Bluetech - Have you posted this on the racing forum, or on Stangnet Classic forum?

I thought most any toploader from a SB Ford would fit, maybe not. Have you looked into a Tremec 3550, 5 speed? I am interested to see the answer to this question. Please keep us posted.

Haven't posted it in other forums of this site. I was thinking that traffic here is higher and I would get more answers; to no avail. I posted this in another site and got more answers there; as usual. I am pretty sure that people here are as informed/knowledgable as those in the other sites. Let's just hope that a few kind souls will come to our rescue! Thanks.

You can use any 69-70 351W (and many 302)bellhousing for the 164 tooth flywheel and any small block 4 speeds. Also the flywheels are the same for the W and C series. Look for a flywheel that will allow a 10.5" and an 11" clutch.
You WILL need a cleveland specific Z-bar and clutch fork however.
Mustangs umlimited has the correct forks, but you will have to round up a Z-bar. any 4-speed crossmember will work. Perogie enterprises has them for sale (used).

I think I can fabricate the Z-bar. Problem is I haven't seen one yet :-) thanks.
