T-85 3 speed overdrive need kit

I have a 1966 ford short box, I had to pull the rear gear (which I liked) 2.73. I had to swap the original gear back to 3.7. It is not interstate friendly. The 2.73 went into my 40 ford with big block.
I could find another 2.73, the truck has a 240 six, it made good mileage but bad power.

I have a T-85 from a 1967 F-100 with 390, with 3.7 with overdrive would make the best of both. I have pulled the transmission and inspected the gears, the cluster has 3 teeth sheared, I think I have a NOS cluster, but the 1st and reverse slider has some wear, it maybe o.k., I except that I need a kit with 2nd and 3rd synchronized rings. I also I may need to look in to measure the input for the six, I could cut off 1/2". I also, I have where 2 T-10 four speeds, they are cousins to the T-85.

If anyone knows how to get a kit, please! The truck is my staple driver.

Thanks!

Anyone still have manual transmissions and parts!

Three pedals make it a hot rod, how can I find gears, bearings, sychronized rings, gaskets, seals. I have a T-85 3 speed with overdrive, I need to find parts, mostly the slider for 1st and reverse, worn teeth, the idler, maybe needles. Broken three teeth on the cluster gear.

If someone knows a website that may get me on the road. I have heard that the T-10 may have alot of the same inside as the T-85. My T-85 was behind a 1967 F-100 with a 390 motor, many T-85s went into T-birds, studbakers, early fords in 60s.

Thanks guys!
