Gary: This is kinda throwing me.The bell looks like an early V-8 221-260-289 5-bolt, as best as I can see. The trans case seems to be C-5AS? Most of them end in R or Z. The Falcon, Fairlane and Comet V8s have C-5-OZ . The big cars had C5AZ for the 289s and C5AR for the FEs. IIRC. Bo you have the tag that was attached to the tranny? If so post it. Also let me know if that is an S on the case. Could be a 289 Hipo? I will check.
I take it that this won't fit in my Falcon then....?
It's only about 2 inches longer in the body than the mustang 3 speed, but the tail shaft is 2 inches shorter so it's the exact same length as the little 3 spd.
Gary, According to Hollander Interchange it is a 390cid overdrive tranny. Ilooked at the pictures again and see a hole on the left side for the governor. There should be a hole on the right side for the electric solonoid.. Let me know if it is there. Damn, I going blind looking The hole i where the speedo cable goes in. Been reading the book to much. The C5Ar threw me off. My hollander does not go past 1965.

I have the stock 61 everything...
I'll measure the output shaft tomorrow before the game and see what I got... I need a clutch fork and a flywheel to hold a 10" clutch and a pressure plate...
Anyone got one?
Your 61' bellhousing is not compatible with the newer transmission shown. Plus the 67' and newer I6 bellhousing that accepts that transmission (Mustang/Maverick/etc) will not bolt to your 61' 6 banger motor. Just like the V8, the back of the blocks changed sometime in 65'. Hint: There is supposed to be an early Econoline bellhousing that does help you to make that transition, but I never tried it. That or replacing the motor with the newer style are about your only solutions. I suggest going to an I6 specialty web site for the details.
The heavy duty tranny pictured was similiar in external design to those found behind the passenger car 6 banger from 67' and newer and you can source some of the other parts from them. Just not the bellhousing. . . . .
I've converted several 66's Stangs which use the same crappy weak tranny that you have to the more modern synchronized one that you bought. I normally found a donor car which was any 6 banger Mustang from 67' and newer. Used to use a lot of Maverick/Comet stuff. I've used both I6 or V8 trannies and both 3 and 4 speed toploaders.
I swapped the flywheels, clutch, trannies, and driveshafts for the newer stuff. The newer clutch is more heavy duty and matches the input shaft splines of the larger tranny which will be different than you little tranny. The splines are also different at the output shaft of the tranny, so you have to change something out there. I've done it 2 ways, by either swapping out the yoke to the newer style, the whole driveshaft, or used a V8 type driveshaft with a later yoke. You also would need to put some thought into attaching your shift mechanisms.
