Are the 1966 Cadillac 429 mounts the same as the Ford 429? Will the Cadillac 429 mount up to a C6 trans?


Thanks

Caddy 429 = Apple
Ford 429 = Sausage

Not even remotely related.

As an aside to this, guys, because I am also into other brands of cars and get this stuff all the time:

A Cadillac 390 is not the same as a Ford 390, neither is a 429 Caddy like a Ford 429.

An AMC 360 or 390 are not the same as a Ford 360 or 390. They're also completely different from a Mopar 360. AMC also made a 401 that has nothing to do with a Buick 401.

A Studebaker 289 has nothing to do with a 289 Ford.

A Chevy 427 is totally different then a Ford 427.

400 Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, Buicks, Chevys, and Fords all have nothing to do with each other, even the GMs are totally different between themselves....same with GM 455s. There is nothing in common between 455 cube GM brands other then bellhousing bolt patterns.

And there are many, many, many other examples. It's just a cubic inch size, and many brands used many different bores and strokes and came up with the same displacements. The engines have nothing to do with each other just because they have the same cube size.
