Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a T10 I've had for my 1964 Fairlane which I believe came out of a 1964 Falcon The Cover has a date of 5 6 63A and the front case number is T10 H1 and rear tail housing number is T10H-7A. I have had it installed before in my Fairlane, I did not know it was not the correct transmission (total length from front flange to yoke u-joint center is 25- 1/2"). Do both the Falcon and Fairlane mount up the same way or is there a different cross member and mount? Do I need a different tail housing for Fairlane? and how does the rear cross member mount up? do you have any pictures? I would appreciate some help with this. Thank you

I'd recomend you go buy a chilton's manual from the parts store. They have pretty good instructions on how to do this. You probably won't have to remove the motor mounts. Just the transmission mount and the whole thing will drop pretty far.

thode screws hold the lens or the light assembly? Allow for the whole tail light to come out and the bulb plug will be accessible. I never had the privilage. But how the lens fits will tell you. If the lens goes overthe edges, the whole unit comes out, lens is sealed. Good luck

Headlamps REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
The headlamps used on the majority of vehicles covered by this guide are called "composite lamps". Unlike the glass sealed beam units used on older vehicles, these headlamps are made of special plastic using small halogen gas bulbs. The bulbs are replaceable, but they do require special handling.
CAUTION Halogen bulbs contain a gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. Always allow the bulb to cool before removal. Always use the following precautions to help avoid personal injury.
Turn the light switch OFF and allow the bulb to cool before changing bulbs. Leave the switch OFF until the bulb replacement procedure is complete.
Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass. Do not drop or scratch the bulb.
Keep the bulb away from moisture.
Place the used bulb in the new bulb's carton and dispose of it properly. Keep halogen bulbs out of reach of children.
Depending on the installation, the low-bean and the high-beam halogen bulbs may actually be removable without removing the entire composite headlamp assembly. Look your application over carefully to see there is enough room behind the headlamp to fit your hand to remove the bulb holder. Since removing the composite headlamp assembly is not difficult, the following procedure assumes that the headlamp is being removed from the vehicle for halogen bulb service.
WARNING Do not touch the glass bulb with your fingers. Oil from your fingers can severely shorted the life of the bulb. If necessary, wipe off any dirt or oil from the bulb with rubbing alcohol before completing installation.
Headlamp adjustment may be temporarily made using a wall, as described below, or on the rear of another vehicle. When adjusted, the lights should not glare in oncoming car or truck windshields, nor should they illuminate the passenger compartment of vehicles driving in front of you. These adjustments are rough and should always be fine-tuned by a repair shop which is equipped with headlamp aiming tools. Improper adjustments may be both dangerous and illegal.

Before removing the headlamp bulb or disturbing the headlamp in any way, note the current settings in order to ease headlamp adjustment upon reassembly. If the high or low beam setting of the old lamp still works, this can be done using the wall of a garage or a building:
Hope helps with this (remember rated this) Good luck.
