Ford T-5 with S-10 tail shaft?

I need to move the shifter forward on a T-5 to run in my Model A. I'm running a 351W. Anyone have any experience in doing this?

Thanks for your help!!

T 5

I was ato the SLC autorama last weekend and
Tremec had a booth there, I ask about Moving a T 5 shifter foreward and the tech said one area to be aware of is the Spedo drive differences in different T 5's T 5's were also used on some import cars. 20 year ago I took a trans to the band saw, cut off the shifter casting Moved it foreward, Tig welded it back to the housing and cut down the shift shaft. a lot of work. but got it out of the front seat area.

Do a Google search. This is very common in the street rod crowd and there are many, many web pages and forum entries that show how to do it.
