    Should be OK, the AOD bell is approx same size but like AOD, 164T flexplate is required.

    Also the flexplate must match engine balance which changed for '80/'81.

    thats what im getting ready to put in my 70. A few in the facebook group said they put a pan filled in a 70. The 70 has a smaller tunnel, so if it can take one, the 72 should be fine.

    My 71 has a pan fill. It’s a little tight but really no problem at all.

    Got her in with motor attached today. No problemo at all. Did had work stoppage and had to make run to orielly' for correct transmission mount.
    I'm gonna do a backflip if an old driveshaft i took off my 70 mustang 10 years ago fits.

    Did you use the double hump transmission cross member to bolt the mount to? The V8 has two bends in it for dual exhaust. The i6 only has one side.
