HEH-BY
« on: March 15, 2023, 05:08:02 PM »
Did any other car than the 427 Cobra use the HEH-BY trans?

I don't find it listed for any thing other then the 427 Cobra. Knowing Ford though there probably is another obscure application that it was sourced from? Nothing in print that I can find though.

Thanks. Would guess that a 427 Cobra did not have a VIN# on the transmisssion?

No, no VIN on the transmission.

In that photo, I would be just a little concerned someone added the "Y" to the ID code after the fact

I can see that, seems a little off and the top of the Y is pointed not flat.

It now looks more so like the the "Y" has been added then not . Still hard to tell if the "Y" has been stamped and then scratched over for some reason or just a primitive "Y" scratched into place. At least that is the way I see it.

Maybe a Y stamped over a V?? Looks like outer legs are perfectly straight to me.

Does anyone have a pic of a similar tag from a known genuine Cobra?

I'll venture to guess there are a lot more 1966 Fairlane/Falcon 289 28 spline wide ratio 4 speeds (HEH BV) out there than 427 Cobra 4 speeds (HEH BY)? It's clear as day to me that is a Y stamped over a V in that photo. Also, what is that hole that appears to be tapped in the left side of the tail housing?
