I pick her up in California several months back. 196 six with air, power steering, and power brakes. I was told the motor had been rebuilt but I cruised it to work about 5 times. I work about 20 miles from home. One day on my way home she lost almost all power at a top speed of about 20 mph. After checking the fuel lines, filter, and pump I decided to pull the valve cover to find 4 push rods had dropped. Needless to say I was pissed. Now I've pulled the drivetrain. Motor, trans, and rear axle. Replacing it with a 401, M7003Z T-5, and a explore disc brake 8.8 rear axle.

Nice looking car.  Welcome from one '65 440-H to another.  Best of luck with your proposed mods.  Keep them photos coming.

I had bought a set of Bulltear six to V8 motor mounts for another 65 440H I have with a 232 six in it and quickly learned I couldn't use them on the 196 crossmember.
