Hey I'm just restoring my grandfathers old Zephyr and I want it to go better. I was thinking about putting a 302 in it but not sure what trans to fit? Also is it possible to still use the column shift for a c4? Also would the standard 3 speed manual trans work with a 302? Diff advice would be awesome as well. Cheers

Do not know if you could get the column shift to work a C4 but if you are talking about the original 3 speed i am sure this box is to weak for the 302 engine.

Ok thanks for that. I thought the original trans might be a bit poor for the purpose. Any other ideas?

Lots of Mk1 had V8s fitted and a mate of mine had one with a Ford Essex V6, I think that can be fitted on a MK1 or 2 Gearbox, easyest option would be to fit a MK3 engine (109 HP as aposed to about 70 on the MK1) that should fiit a mk fairly easily and the gearbox should cope
