I am in the process of installing a Metric 200R4 GM overdrive in my '53 Chevy pickup. Metric transmissions are evidentally Detriot's homage to political correctness; everything American is evil, everything form socialist countries is sacred so we must go metric. Regardless, they are regular transmissions, just need 10mm & 12mm wrences to take off the pan and valve body bolts. Granted, they are not 'plug-and-play' like the old 350 or C-4 but if you set them up right, they can't be beat. Throttle linkage is CRITICAL. Must set it with a pressure gauge. I am using parts and advice from Bowtie transmissions but I'm sure there is a company on the web that specializes in FixOrRepairDaily cars. In fact, contact <a href="http://www.700r4.com" target="_blank">www.7004R.com</a> and they can probably put you in touch w/ a Ford dealer.
