Apparently you did not use your friend (Google).

Here are a couple of photos of my GM 4 speed manual engine transmission and linkage set up. It has been modified and does not work very well, first gear is very hard to find. Would like to know what sort of gear box this is and will it be suitable for a 451 Ford v8? Am I able to get a gear shift linkage set up for this gear box?

cast iron Saginaw. I wouldn't put it behind a 350cid...anything in a performance application; let alone getting a conversion pilot bushing, and a linkage of some type (Hurst Mystery shifter perhaps) They're worth about 300 dollars if it has the right ratio to the dirt track guys, or someone is a serious resto nut.

Like autogear said, Saginaw; and it's the Vega-Monza unit to boot as it has the mounting on the extension housing for an anti-vibration weight to be attached. It would also have either a 3.11:1 or 3.50:1 first gear. Hurst still makes shifters to fit. Butch/junior stocker. The linkage you show would have bolted to the crossmember, not directly to the trans; that's why they were'nt very good. With torque, the rods would get stressed and twisted up somewhat, making powershifts difficult. And what's with the adapter? Ford bellhousing?
