not without some type of adapter

and I cant recall ever seeing or hearing about anything to do that.

why not use a C6 or C4 adapted to the NP pattern?

Re: 351 windsor to a 1985 727 tranny?

This is my situation, I have an 57 Willys wagon that has the 351 in it with the T-90 and T-18 set up with the orginal axles. I purchased an 85 Wagoneer so I could use the axles and the rest of the drive train. But as I'm looking around I have found that the parts for the AMC 360 are more expensive than the 351. So I would like to go with the 351 and the 727 with an 208 x-case. Less vacuum hoses, probably equal in power options. I cannot use the T-90 and the t-18 cause they are the passenger side drop and the wagoneer axles are setup for the drivers side x-case drop. So this is my problem... any suggestions? Thanks Pete

To avoid some confusion later, a T-18 is a four speed transmission. A D-18 is a transfer case (Dana 18 ) with offset rear output.

no really good suggestions, other than maybe better to spend a little more and get the AMC engine built, and then save way more than that on not haveing to buy adapters or other parts your going to have to have to use the Ford engine.

Sorry, Will you are right, I have the T-90 3 speed with the D-18 x-case. This is a very stout setup but I cannot use it. Thanks OZ, I'm still thinking about that. I just don't like the 20 miles of vacuum hoses that the engine has..

you can condense the vac hoses down to justa couple of feet, unless youve got smog nazis

Looks like I'm going to stick with the 360. I just got off of the phone with Advanced Adapters and they don't make an adapter. Go figure.. Well thanks anyways for the help.. Pete

Why not just sell the 727 and pick up a 4wd C6 with a ford NP208. C6's are dirt cheap and plentiful around here...

why not use a T18 and a Ford (Borg-warner?) Transfer?
