better watch out with those fmx trans, i knew a guy who had one with a high hp motor and ruin his motor with that trans, forget what happened but it let go and doing so ruin his motor, im not saying that yours would but be carefull, i changed over to a JPT c-4 full roller trans on my 69mach1 and never look back, lighter much lighter then the fmx and more performance parts and converters to boot, that trans is sitting on my garage floor and its a heavy mother to move around, c-4 i can pick right up.
I understand that. They arent all rollerish and whatnot but they've been around for ages and I've heard of racers useing them for years and ignoring the extra fifty pounds of weight... There has to be someone who believes in them out here.... I have one I want to build and sell... A man's gotta make some money somehow... LOL
This is off a 351 Cleveland and would need a special Bell to fit a t-bird, they came almost exclusively with FE series engines... Until 68.
Traction get's you a little way... Power get's you farther... Momentum get's you even farther than that... Put them ALL together, and you can conquer an empire! I am the emperror of that empire! I am the EMPERROR of MUD & ROCK & SAND & ASPHALT

I'm thinking to do it myself... I'm a genuine Mechanic but not a tranny man, but I shouldn't be daunted, I mean the only reason I am a mechanic is because it's sooooo damn easy, and I've been doing it since back when George Washington had Real Teeth........ How hard can it be to follow directions on rebuilding a tranny....?
