ford guys ( bronco related)

Looking at getting an 88 bronco full size. Has 351w and a manual transmission that needs rebuilt or replaced. According to wikipedia, all 88 broncos with 351w motors came stock with a c6 tranny(auto) my questions are, how do I tell for sure which tranny I have, what year motor I may have, and what may or may not bolt up in place of current. Will keep you guys posted on the build.

Dont knock it till you've tried it

Been a while since I had my 79 Bronco, Look for the numbers on the block and bell housing and look it up on line. Lots of Ford sites out there.

In 88 standard transmission was an option that only came in the 300 6 cyl or the 302 v-8. Either the motor was swapped out or transmission. I would most likely bet your engine was swapped.

I know 302, 351 w and 351 Cleveland had the same bolt pattern in older years. 351m and 400 were different than the other 351 for bolt pattern, except for a very limited few. Not sure on the bolt pattern on newer motors.

The 300, 302, 351 w all have the same bolt pattern.
I miss my old 82 Bronco with the 300.

Re: ford guys ( bronco related)

300 was a good ol' motor, if ya weren't in a big hurry to get anywhere, as I recall?



Two of my farmboy cousins had trucks with that engine some years back. One was a 2WD w/four speed manual and granny gear. Never had a problem pulling a loaded bale kicker wagon with it - until the day the step bumper came partially off, while hauling a load of hay over to his daughter's farm in NY. Stout old truck.
