Actually I used Granada spindles on the '67 and grafted SN95 PBR calipers onto them. But anyway...

What, no definitive description of 7.25" rear end applications?

Here is some more information that might help

My current engine #
C6DE
6015-D

Ebay engine for sale
C5DE
6015-H

Does it matter if I have a manual or automatic transmission ? I have a 3 speed manual.

Do NOT buy that engine without verifying your bellhousing pattern. That's an "early" 200 that only has the 8.5" bellhousing spacing. The later blocks (65-68) are drilled for both 8.5 & 9" spacing and the '69-79's only the 9" spacing. You want to be darn sure which bellhousing you have before pulling the trigger or you could end up with a real headache.

No, it doesn't matter if you have a manual or automatic transmission, other than either removing, or adding, a pilot bushing to the end of the crank prior to installing the clutch assembly.

Also, beware of early 200's (and 144/170 imposters) which are easy enough to spot if the head is off and you can measure the bore, but the early 200's had 5 main bearings vs. 7 mains in the later versions. They are easily ID'd as having only 3 freeze plugs down the side of the block vs. the later 200's which have 5 freeze plugs.

Not an expert on the engine codes, but I am assuming the C6DE means 66 and the C5DE means 65...and if I remember correctly the 66 block has dual transmission bolt patterns while the 65 only has one, I don't know offhand which bolt pattern the 3-speed MTX on a 66 I6 optioned car is though

read this from the experts though....and check to see whether you have 2 holes exposed at the top of your block...and whether the ebay engine you are referencing does as well.
