Got this 400M with trans at the salvage yard out of a '79' truck.
The trans looked odd...so i included a chart showing the possible trans... and it doesn't match any. Whats going on??




















Just for conversation, i also snagged this...Ford "Y" 1959

pantera guys look hard for these blocks.

The casting on the 400M is D7TE-A2A
1977 to 1982 build

so you are saying that if i take off trans..there should be two sets of bell housing bolt patterns...

jopes wasnt refering to the y block i would imagine.
Thats what i was thinking too...

When i was walking through the salvage yard the Y engine was sitting on top of a pile of discarded engines....it was upright and the FORD covers caught my eye....it was beckening me to save it from the near wrecking ball of fate.:whiteflag
The crane op told me he was sure the peddler told him it was out of a piece of farm equipment.
