I just bought a T 10 for my 65 falcon, the one thats in there now fell into gear when I was towing it on a tow dolly so it's gone. My question is the tranny thats in there now has an 8 bolt pattern and the one i just bought has a 4 bolt pattern. I also need to get a 6 bolt bellhousing, the one i bought today has a 5 bolt pattern. the code of the one currently in the car is T 10 H 7A W 2, the tranny i just got code is T 10 B 1 W 1. the tail shafts on both are the same. whats is the difference between them is it just the 4 bolt and 8 bolt pattern. Any help would be great

the 4 bolt is a 64 or older trans,65 above had 8 bolt to fit the 64 back or 65 above.when u get a 6 hole bellhousing that trans will not fit because it will have the wide pattern only.u can drill the bellhousing and make it work.
