Does the FE block have the same bell housing bolt pattern as the Y block?
I have a 63 F 700 with a 359 FT engine. I'd like to put a 312 that I have in it and I believe the bell housing will match. is this correct?

I'm guessing you meant a 352 FE engine. And the answer is NO, the Y block uses a different bellhousing pattern.

It really is a 359 engine. It is supposedly identical to the 361 engine which is a 390 block with a 352 crank.
They were common in larger trucks. Thirty years ago I put a 390 in a 54 Ford in place of a Y block and it was no problem. I could not remember if I changed the bell housing or not but if it is a different bolt pattern I guess I did.
In looking at the bell housing on my truck it appears the same pattern as the Y block but apparently not.

thank you for the replies,
