Re: 1956 Fairlane Victoria flex plate 292 fordomatic question

you need all 6.i would think the 4 bolts their talking about are for attaching the flex plate to the torque converter.the early one used 6.

Re: 55 or 56 Ford y block ID ?

ted eaton is thinking early in 56.doesnt know if dif and cf heads changed at the same time.you would think with all the 56s out there with original motors it would be easy to narrow it down.
