FO1601 Ford Small Block to early Transmission (1948 & older)


This TRANSMISSION ADAPTER KIT will allow for any Ford engine (i.e. - 240 / 300 straight-6, 250 straight-6, 289, 302, 351W, 351C engines) with a Small Block Ford (6-bolt) bolt-pattern to adapt to any 1948 & older Ford 3 or 4-speed transmission.

This kit utilizes the stock Ford Small Block 164-tooth stick flywheel and starter. We can supply ALL components associated with this application, including the flywheel and starter, however since these engines came with several different balance weights on them, you MUST know which weight to order! The straight-6 engines used neutral balance flywheels, the V8's used 28oz. or 50oz. weight-balanced flywheels. The 157-tooth flywheels WILL NOT WORK with this kit!
