T-5 tail shafts changed for shifter location

I have a 90 gt T-5 with the shifter located on the tail shaft. I seen a F150 truck T-5 with the shifter mount closer to the gear box . I was wondering if i could use that tail shaft to this trans. My problem is i'm trying to get the T-5 in my 31 Model A sedan. The tail shaft shifter ends up under my seat location because its 26 inches from where bellhousing mounts to engine. The F150 pic looks as if it would move shifter up at least 8 inches or more .

I would use the F150 if i could get the first gear ratio changed out to match the 90 GT T-5

second pic is of T-5 first is of a trans with shifter in best position .

The Chevy S10 tailshaft housing has the most forward shifter position, but I'm not sure it will work with the Ford T5. The Ford and GM ouput shafts use a different spline count, so are the yoke diameters different? That could mean different tailshaft bushing sizes. I'm pretty sure that your Ford T5 is a WC transmission, which means you'd need a WC S10 housing. They were used in - I think -'93-'94. The speedo drive location has already been mentioned. These are just things for consideration, but can cause some grief if not resolved beforehand.

Bob yes its a WC . Not being a trans guy here at all i see the speedo in the housing . So what your saying is i would have to take out some internals to move its location . As for 93-94 S10 there are a few in local yard with trans in them . Should i look for a specific number on the tag to see adaptablity or ID for a WC T-5.

First, all S10 WC transmissions will have an electronic speed sensor instead of a gear driven speedo. There's a 40 tooth reluctor on the tailshaft that provides a signal pulse. I seriously doubt that the sensor location would coincide with the Mustang location, so you'll have some work to do on that. I have a WC S10 trans and the tag number is 1352-216.

Bob your right went to a swap meet today found a 89 T-5 from a 4 cylinder S10 . The tail shaft and top plate to relocate shifter forward worked well . I think i have a remedy to move the electronic reluctor over to my shaft . The out put shafts look identical but im not experienced enough to pull it down that far and switch them .

The only difference i see in the gear box is the for most gear its smaller in the S 10 versus the WC first gear box pic is of 90 mustang second is chevy S10

So i now have a WC T-5 5spd with a shifter that will work in a 31 Model A
