Re: Can anyone ID this Trans????

Looks like a Borg Warner T10, and although I can't see the front mounting flanges, looks like it could be out of a Ford, maybe 390. The tail shaft is quite long.......................what does the...

Re: setting up three 94's for a Y block ?

Don't let anyone fool you, you have a lot of hours to look forward to making these 94's...

Re: junkyard find/ 56 Ford Ranch Wagon

Sorry, forgot the picture. It was complete with 292/4brl, dual exhaust and trailer hitch.
