Post tranny trouble

hi i have an 85 gt mustang that had a beefed up 5.0 w/a 5spd and a 4.11 posi. im putting a different 302 in it cause when i bought it from my buddy, he had about 4 of the cylinders scorched. so anyway i was double checkin all of my parts from the part store and i checked my new pilot bushing and it looked good when i put it up to the 5.0 crank but when i put it on the input shaft of the t5 it was very loose. i found via the internet that the 2.3 t5 had a .59" diameter input shaft which is what mine ended being after i calipered the input shaft,and the 5.0 input shaft is supposed to have a .668" diameter input shaft. when whoever put the 2.3 tranny in the car, they must have used a 5.0 pilot bushing and now the front bearing for the input shaft is also shot. so in all i got a 2.3 tranny with a slopped out input shaft bearing and im wondering what my best route to take from here is. should i rebuild this one and put a larger shaft in it, if its even possible or can i find a cheap 5.0 t5 just about anywhere?? i would appreciate any help you could give me. thanks,oh by the way the #'s off the tranny are 1325-066-909

The four cylinder T-5 has a input shaft that won't take the torque of a 5.0. It has a lower first gear ratio for quicker take-off and that cut is what makes it weak.

You can either change the gear set on the present trans or try and find a 5.0 trans. The exchange trans would most likely be cheaper than completely going through the one you have.
