Are the transmission cross members the same for all five years with the 250 engine? I see that the ones for the 302-351 are different.

I'm surprised the 302 and 351 are different, I'd think they'd be the same. Are you sure they're different?

I think the 250 even takes the same as the 302 and 351.

69-70 250 is different because height or angle differences than what the 200 had. It is actually the same as the 67-69 FE 4-speed member. I think the differences with the 302 and the 351 have to do with the FMX being used with the 351 and the c4 being used with a 302.

Not sure though. The MPC cd is all I have to go by on this and I donít have much experience with the 71-73 Stangs.

I was just told by somebody with a later MPC that 69-72 is the same but the 73 has a different part number. I think they said it was the 1978 edition of the MPC.

Iím kind of surprised that the 73 is different.

Well, the '73 used different motor mounts, maybe it's related to that? I believe they were taller and insulated.
