      It has Both a CAR Engine AND Trans.

      UPDATE: I downloaded our V8 Engine I.D. PDF Chart from the SDC Home Webpage, Links that can no longer be read on the Website and identified your engine, it is a 1958 Commander 259 CAR Engine.

      If that T86-E Trans. is a Long Tail Trans. it would not be what was used in Trucks, but if installed properly with the correct Driveshaft Slip Joint it should work OK.

      The correct Trans. would be the H.D. T-85 Std. or Overdrive, but with a Short Tail with a Bolted Yoke connection to the Driveshaft, NOT a Slip Yoke.

        That Engine could be a good one with good seating Valves and little Cylinder wear with good compression, possibly rebuilt.

        My concern would be WHAT Clutch Housing was used, and was it dialed-in to the the Engine/Crankshaft?

        In order to get the Truck Engine Mount BRACKETS to fit the Engine into the Truck properly, you need a Truck Clutch Housing. And then would it fit the Bolt Pattern on the Trans. which could be the Square Pattern or the Later Ford pattern with the Lower Right Hand Bolt more outboard.

        If the whole package is all stock '58 Car THAT would be a problem.

            Still reading it here in Pennsylvania. On Windows 10 and Firefox browser.
            Maybe it's just a Pacific Northwest issue, or a server, PC or smart phone issue.

              My Desktop PC is running Windows 10 with Firefox Internet Browser and the PDF's always go to "Downloads" to be read or Saved, but cannot be read from the Website.

              One of my "Systems" must be the cause.

                I have a laptop with Windows 10, but not Firefox, and have no problem going from the Forum to engine listing and back.

                      OK Brad, do the PDF's Open by just clicking them or not?
                      If they do with the same setup as mine, it must be some setting I have set, or a Spam Blocker.

                      It happened to me when they completely Redesigned the SDC Webpage, not Forum related.

                          They do.
                          I open the SDC site, go to the Resources drop down menu, select tech tips, then scroll down to whatever it is I'm looking for; mouse click on it and it opens. I'm also on DSL from Verizon so your server speed is probably faster than mine as well.

                            Me, too. Windows 7 on an old desktop, and Windows 10 on a newer laptop. Chrome on both. Opens like any other website.

                              Back to the subject at hand:
                              Since this a car engine, the water pump manifold housing will need to be changed to prevent you from going to extreme lengths to get it to work properly.
                              I did the extreme length thing, and it's probably not worth the headache.
                              Essentially on a car engine, the fan becomes too low in the engine bay.
