hey guys, i cant seem to find answers for my questions, so ill ask them in a new post. I was given a 352 ford motor. I'm not sure if it is a 352 or not. It has 352 cast on the front of the block. Question 1: Besides pulling a head, is there any other way to find out what the engine actually is? (ie: casting numbers etc.) Question 2: How can I identify the heads? As far as I know the motor is stock. Question 3: I have access to a 5 speed transmission out of a 1996-7 ford ranger. V-6. I know the bell housing will not work. If I get a manual transmission bell housing for the 352, Will the transmission work, physically? Input shaft length, clutch, flywheel etc. Question 4: If I can make the trans work, what exactly am I looking for with the bell housing? Is there a certain dimension, or casting mark, or some sort of identification? The transmission will be free to me if I can use it. I am assembling parts to build a hot rod. I'm not looking for performance, just a cruiser. Please don't hate me, I have very limited knowledge of ford anything. I was raised Chevrolet, and came to my senses for Mopar.(Daily driver is a Mega cab Dodge Ram, wifes daily driver is a Dodge Durango. Work truck is a Cummins dually Ram. All great vehicles) Any and all thoughts will be appreciated.
