Can I use an A/T from a '72 Mercury Comet w/ I6 200 on a '67 Mustang I6 200? The Comet is column shift. Thanks.

I think the column shift uses a different bellcrank in the tranny, but if you change that it should be fine.

The linkage that the shifter rod connects to on the tranny. It goes inside the tranny and if I remember from other posts you have to take the tranny apart to change it. I could be wrong about this though, we'll have to wait for someone who has actually seen a column shift c-4 before.

I think I can figure out how to transfer the bellcrank I'll try it myself. Better than bringing two trans to the shop Thanks.

Yes, I've done it many times. The bellcrank {I call it the shift lever} just swaps over. You have to loosen the valve body to get at the nut at the end of the lever. It's a good time to change that seal, by the way.
