  1. I wasn't looking to cause any problems, just trying to get useful info from people who have given this a shot. I've been on the Cougar sites for a while and not many have done this conversion. In the past, whenever I googled anything about 429 conversions I more often than not ended up being led back to this site. TommyK: thanks for the info, I'll check it out.
  2. I have a rebuilt 429 "N" code from a `70 Torino that I want to install into my 72 Cougar. I also have the C6 out of the same Torino, but it is a column shift trans. I really need some help to figure out what I`d need to change on the C6 to make it a floor shift for my Cougar. Is this at all possible? What do I need for the linkages?

  7. Hello everyone. Have been checking out these forums for a while and been a fan of '71-'73's for a long long time. I`m coming at things from a bit different angle because right now I have a relatively low mileage, rust free `72 Cougar XR7. I`m really enjoying the car and it`s a model you don`t see many of on the streets. Anyway, I have a mildly modified 351 C with a FMX. Was a 2v, now a 4v. Runs good, but I have a rebuilt 429 N code out of a `70 Torino Cobra with a C6. I know I`m going to need some help with gathering the parts I`ll need and with tech support. Especially confusing to me is swit
