Q: Will a 429 fit in a 1962 Ford Falcon or should I just go with a 302?
I'm building a 1962 Ford Falcon. I want to get to 500 streetable horsepower. Gas mileage isn't an issue as I'm just building a cruiser that I'll take out on Friday and Saturday nights and go to the strip every so often. I may drive it to work every once in a while but not daily. Now back to my issue. My buddy has a 429 that he said he'd sell me cheap if I want it. I know that is a great motor and I would have no problem getting to 500 horses. The problem is that I don't know if it would fit. I don't really want to have to mess with chopping up the engine compartment to fit the 429. I did that to fit a 460 into a 74' Maverick and it's not fun. There is a 302 that is sitting in the garage at my dad's house that I'm pretty sure would fit with no problem. But how much am I going to have to spend to get a 302 to 500h.p.? Thanks for taking the time to answer my question!
A: 429 will not work without removing the shock towers and installing rack and pinion steering,but a351w will,thats what I am putting in the 65 falcon that I am building now.

Q: 1962 Ford Falcon generator problem?
The Idiot light glows very faintly only on acceleration, with the lights on. Otherwise it is fine. The car battery has not died, but I havent travelled far at night. The generator puts out 13.7 volts at idle. Is this the cut out relay or the generator. Both are pretty old.
A: More than likely, if everything is original, you need to adjust the voltage regulator. The older classics had adjustable regulators with contact points that get dirty and an air gap adjustment. You may have buildup on the contacts, you may have buildup on the generator brushes. The light will also glow with an overcharge problem. Or with a problem with the dash resistor wiring. Best you can do is check it with a DVOM to find out what it is actually doing. From the battery, generator, regulator, "idiot" light, resistor, etc.

I have a 1962 ford falcon with a ford o matic tranns with a staight 6 170 cid engine.i want to change the tranny but i dont want to do alot of modification
A: look for a maverick or mustang from 69-73 with the 250 engine and tranny, you'll need both and some fabing Nothing fits that bellhousing except another early 170, you'll have to find one from another Falcon or Comet, that Mustang is to long. and only 3 bolts line up Have you tried manually shifting it to see what it will do? start in low, shift and right back to low, run it out and then shift to drive. That's what I have to do with my English Borgwarner in a Sunbeam. I call it my hidden 3 speed
