Canadian Engine Transfer?!?!

Unread post by FoRd_FaN101 » August 1st, 2009, 6:13 pm

Hey Hows it goin ford fans!!
Im 16 yrs old and i live in qld, I just got my learners license...
In case you dont know, the law in QLD for when u get your Provisionals is that you are not aloud to have a V8 engine or a turbo petrol or anything high powered lets say...
I have found a F-100 that a cane farmer wants to sell and its in pretty good nick!
It has a canadian engine (6-Cylinder) in it and a 4 spd manuel gearbox.
I own a XF ford falcon anf the body on that is ROOTED.. which has a 5 spd manual..
Was wonderin if anyone knows if a in-line 6-cylinder crossflow engine will drop straight into the F-100 or if i need to do a modification to the engine mounts and get an adaption plate for the gearbox...
If you do know or might have a clue, please tell me!!

Hi and welcome to the f truck clan. I believe that the bellhousing of the f100 is the same bolt pattern for all ford six's and v8's, You won't be able to use the 5 speed unless it's 2wd. I would go for the crossflow until your licence allows for an upgrade to V8 ( can't beat cubes ). You may need to change engine mounts and possibly clutch, check out F-Trucks Australia they may be able to help.

Seems the link is no longer working will try to find a new QLD link soon google is your friend.

I think you should work out just which straight six engine you have. It may be the 300 cubic inch. If so, it is well regarded. They pull just as strong as the same size V8's and are meant to be very reliable.

Can you provide some more info? Someone here might be able to help. Another good forum on all things Ford in America - Ford Truck Enthusiasts - US
Cheers, Dave.

As Far as i know, my uncle has had a look at the vehicle before, and he says its got a Canadian 300, it has been HOT and needs a rebuild, a general tidy of the interior is all it needs and it should be right for road worthy, also not sure but when he asked how much for it he replied, $9000 ?!?!?

Not sure if thats wat i should be paying, uncle reckons if i can get it under $3000 your laughing...

umm recently had whelsh plugs replaced only has minor surface rust under bonnet and interior is pretty rough, it was a cane farmers workhorse, will try to get sum pix this weekend and maybe ask the owner bout it and find out a bit more info.

i thought parts would be uncommon for a candian 300, but heard that thy are no more uncommon than a 351 part, is this true?!?!?

The 300 motors are not particularly hard to get bits for, you just have to look around. You can get anything from the US via the web for 1/3 to 1/2 the local price as they were the standard engine in the F100 / Bronco for many years. My fater transplanted one into an F100 4x4 to replace the deceased crossflow Falcon six. It was a beast of an engine, totally reliable, and almost unbreakable. It dropped right in, and bolted up to he standard 4 speed.

Hmmm. I have a nissan 620 chassis with an iron head xflow motor (from an XD falcon) and BW40 auto box with a rooted reverse band. I also have another bushbasher with a 'log' motor (the same as the 300ci f100 motor, but smaller displacement) with a 3spd manual box.

So the engine to gearbox mount patterns are different between the xflow and pre-crossflow engines?

No the local Xflow and non Xflow are the same. The Canadian 300 or 240 six is different though. I THINK however that is the same as the Windsor V8. I would leave the old New Process 4 speed in though it is a proper truck box, cast iron case , virtually indestructable. The Ford 5 speed is weak by comparison.
