some people re-drill a single rail 250xflow bellhousing to put a T5 behind them. (the ones who are too cheep to buy a propper XF series 2 T5 belhousing)

so i dont see why it couldnt work the other way around... re-drilling a 4.0L bellhousing to suit a single rail.. but 5 gears to 4.. higher revs.. weak gearbox... i dont see any logic.. possibly is u were looking @ toploader. loads of oldschool blokes swear by them over a T5 anyday for strength.

my 2c.

Tim.

As said, 250's and 4.0 are way off (starter motor is even on opposite sides).

If ^^^ they are right and you want to put x-series style gearboxes behind a 4.0 you have a few options. If you want a 3 speed auto, use an EA 3 speed bellhousing (will take x-series borg warner gearboxes). For C4/C9/C10's you need a CRS/dellow/etc housing. If you want a singlerail or top loader you can use a T5 bellhousing and re-drill it to take the box.

4.0 T5 bellhousing drilled for single rail:

4.0 T5 bellhousing drilled for toploader:
