5 Speed from a S 10 in a 36 FORD

I have a 1936 FORD with a SBC 350. I just pulled the tranny and rear out. I am putting in a 9 inch with 350 gears. I plan to put in a 5 speed from an S 10 Chevy. Has anyone done this and does anyone have any ideas on the conversion as to starter, flywheel, bell housing, and drive shaft?
I know the 4 cylinder version is too week but I was wondering if the 6 cylinder tranny is strong enough.
The engine is a stock 350 rated at about 250 to 300 HP.
Thanks

If you treat it real nice it will last. If you beat on it you will break it. The V6 transmission isn't much stronger than the I4 transmission. The Camaro V8 transmission is the strongest, but was still only rated for enough torque for a 305. You need to check on the input shaft length before you get too far into this. The 60 degree V6 S10 transmissions had a longer input shaft that won't work with a V8 bellhousing. I don't know about the 4.3 transmissions.

If you are going to be fairly easy on it I would use a Camaro T5, or adapt a Mustand T5 to the Chevy engine. I think the Camaro transmission is rotated slightly, so you might have to make adjustments to the shifter. I think all of the parts are available to put the Mustang transmission on the Chevy. If you are going to be hard on it then I would use a Tremec TKO500 for a stock 350.

Camaro T5, S10 tailshaft. takes a little bit of tinkering but it swaps, gives a transmission that will be good for a mild small block, and it puts the shifter where it should be, or in an approximate place of where the floor shifter was on '35-'39 Fords

The only problem with doing the S10 tail housing swap is that the speedometer gear will not line up. Otherwise it works fine. The S10 cover also must be used. If you could do the Mustang WC T5 swap that would probably be good. I know that the Mustang guys beat the crap out of them and they hold up pretty well.
