302 Windsor into 85 240gle.

Can anyone help please with ideas on my proposed conversion. I have the engine and would like to know what auto transmission would easily fit up to the ford small block pattern. I am led to believe that ford used bw transmissions at some stage and I was wondering if there is a Borg Warner that was common to ford and Volvo. Thanks in advance. Bill


  • Ford XR series falcon was fitted with BW 35 transmissions behind the 289V8.Good luck trying to find one.Your biggest problem in trying to fit the 302 to your volvo will be the engine oil pump which is located in the sump near the front of the block.

  • Thanks for the info.The sump and pump can be bought double hump Mustang or rear bronco I was try to keep the trans simple.
