66-69 Falcon crossmember

Asked by Aug 20, 2011 at 06:16 AM about the Ford Falcon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can some tell me for sure that the US 66-69 Falcon front crossmember is the same as the Australian version, in particular engine mounts, and also steering lingage location (apart from the obvious l/r hand drive)?

From,what I hear( I could be wrong--)Australia,uses the metric,system..I really think-you could use,the american front cross-member,but,you might have to elongate the holes-to match the car-you"ve got.. I do know-that america,,used the australian dies,to make the 67 falcon,witch--makes it,a stranger to us...It was different,than anything-we-here,on the state-side,,have ever seen... dies--

I could've been more specific, I was thinking that if these crossmembers were the same than the 390 frame mounts would've fitted. From what I understand these cars were available with the fe engine in the US.

I think The engine mount pads,off of a 67-68 mustang/couger,can be utilised,for a 390 swap..I personally-have not seen a faxtory 390 falcon,but I have seen this swap done before..

Just looked at those mustang parts, the engine plate and insulator do look like they would do the job. Thanks for the tip
