First Rule of Project Management: Define all tasks.
Took that to heart and did my best to think of everything that will need to be done to swap Freddie’s engine and tranny.

1. Drain/remove radiator
2. Remove hood
3. Disconnect battery
4. [delete "Remove regulator"]
5. Disconnect ignition
6. Disconnect throttle linkage
7. Disconnect fuel line
8. Disconnect speedometer cable at transmission
9. Disconnect transmission linkage...

Saturday's Progress

The tranny is FINISHED!!
I had an anxious moment in the middle of the day. I'd assembled most of it and discovered I'd hooked up the internal linkage incorrectly. At first it looked like I wouldn't be able to correct it without pulling the clutch packs back out, but managed to re-do the linkage without pulling it apart.

Some pictures attached: Tranny at the beginning of the day; Tranny finished; a shot of the head; a shot of the intake manifold and a shot of the header.

Freddie's Transplant

Posted 09-18-2009 at 03:22 PM by MacDee

Sept 18, 2009:
As stated in the Forum, my '63 hardtop is about to get a 200 plus C4 replacing its 170 and Ford-o-matic 2spd. The 200 will get Classic Inlines new aluminum head and intake with 390-cfm 4-barrel carb, 274-degree cam, headers and Pertonix Ignitor II ignition. The C4 is getting a full re-build with shift kit and 2600-rpm-stall torque converter.
My buddy Carter Burns is building the engine and I am doing my best at rebuilding the trans. All parts are acquired, and everything...
