bone yard parts
Be aware that ford changed the flyweel balance weights, tooth count and belhousings and starters over the years, You will need 82 and later with a 50 oz balance, bellhousing and stater

Ford started using a 4 speed (3 speed with overdrive) in the light trucks in 1978. I don't know much about these transmissions, but I think they should bolt up to your engine directly, since they were used with the 300 6 cyl and 351 V8.
Ford also used a 4 speed (and maybe a 5 speed) with the Mustangs. The 302 was a stock Mustang engine up until '94, so there should be quite a few of these transmissions around.

gm no fit
The Gm transmissions don't fit, a few internal parts for T 10s interchange, not many. I think 82 5.0 HO mustang also used an aluminum top loader OD trans, , check out the shifter locations between vans pickups and mustangs to see what works best. and I think there are various gear ratios. The toploaders were a little stronger than a T 5

Look up Ford toploader trans...those were stock and ther was an OD version used in mid 80's vans. then you can use the stock ford bellhousing and clutch..

Needing a 4speed tranny for my 54 ford pu
Hi, I want to install a 4 speed in my 54 ford pick up but am not sure what unit to use. Im presently running a 302 86 ford motor [not a 5.0] and a AOD transmission. I believe they use to use a T10 in the early ford muscle cars but I was wondering if the muncie or saginaw can be used in its place? are the mounting holes the same? lenght and spline # of the imput shaft the same? what bell housing would I need to use? I would also like to use a hydraulic throw out bearing instead of linkage and fork, is this a posibility on the early trannys? any imput would be appreciated. Bill
