Cool engine swap

Hi all its Ric. I have been posting the odd vibration questions but today I have a new question. Will a ford inline 6 250 cubic inch from a newer falcon fit my 1964 falcon which now has a 200 and c4 transmission in it. I found one on the other side of the state so I cant just run over to check it out. The guy has it set up to run on a test stand . I just dont want to go over if it wont bolt up what do you think ?

It will all hook up, it's identical in many respects, but it is taller and hood clearance may be an issue. Nothing concrete on that last part, but that's what I've heard.

How do you know the 250 is a good one?
That article makes it look like one change leads to another and another...

odd vibration

thanks you smithkid for the link about going to the 250 motor. I think I am going to pass on that option it is just to many mods to make it work. It was on craigslist in Spokane . Good thing you all told me about the hassles with that one .

Not sure how much you want to spend Ric, but s&j engines in Spokane seemed to do a great job on mine. We pulled mine out, gave it to them with everything pulled off of it, dirty - got it back in a week better than new. $100 freight round trip from federal way. Anyway, seems like you still need to double check your compression.
