S10 5-speed for GM 350?

I'm looking for options to put a 5-speed manual behind my chevy 350 in a 32 Ford. I'd rather not spend the $1800-3000 for a new one.

Will a mid-90's S10 tranny bolt on to the crate motor? Also, how can I get a drive-shaft and rear gears to reach it to the Ford 9"? I'll also have to rig a clutch linkage.

Tips?

You will break it! Just as I did in my s10. I had a stout 355 in my s10 with the stock 5 speed with a good clutch. The 5 speed was originally behind a 4.3 liter v6. It lasted for awhile until one good shift to 2nd gear and then...BANG! There were so many broken parts inside and the case cracked as well.

5 speed for 350

Drive it right and you will be ok I ran an early B/W T5 from a chevy monza behind a 350 for years,
And that was in a 4200 pound 3/4 ton 62 chevy truck that we used for hauling wood to heat our home and scrap iron I put thousands of miles on that trany.

Anything can be broken th reason that trany went in there was the stock 4 speed left parts all over the place.
