 200 CID Six

I've decided I'm going to go with a new inline six. I have heard and read on this site that the 200 CID six is a direct bolt in. I also have heard that there are 2 types. Something to do with 4 of 6 bolt bell housing I think, and high or low mounted starter?

Anyway I have the 170 CID now. Which 200 Six is the right one or is there only one?

Thanks
Al

Al,

The lm engines were produced 80 - 83 and are not direct boltins. Pretty east to spot since there is ,well, a low mount starter :) Any from 66 to 79 are ok with the 77 - 79 being a tad bit better due to larger valves. The very early 200's did not have the dual drilled blocks so you are unable to use the later bells on them if you decide to go with a later tranny. All of the foregoing is JMHO of course.

Jim, if I read this right. If I get a 200 out of a 78 Ford Fairmont (spotted one in the local paper)I should be able to bolt it up to my existing Bell housing and 3 speed?

Al,

As long as you use your current flywheel will work fine. As a bonus with the 78 Fairmont engine you should get a DS11 ignition system already in place. Make sure they throw in the control module etc.
