hey 52 f1 just a couple of more questions. given that the transmissions are the same and will bolt up to a flathead v8, would an adapter plate from speedway work to put in a t5 from an s10. i know that putting an early ford transmission will require only a little work and the t5 somewhat more but im only asking for future reference. my shop manual shows both three speeds and all of the 4 speeds. all except the light duty three speed have the clutch housing bolting up to the transmission with the same six bolt pattern. i think that the three speed i have a line on is a light duty floorshift. its in a 50 f1.
thanks a lot 52 f1 you have helped me a lot. i removed my transmission and will take it along when i find another (to set side by side and make sure it will fit). one other question though. other than shifting a transmission through the gears and turning the mainshaft what other things should i be looking at? and do you think a light duty three speed floor shift would be ok? thanks again
I would take the top off of the case and take a look for any issues chipped gears or a ton of wear. Those things were pretty tough for their size. As long as you are not pulling anything heavy I would not think twice about it.
hey 55 350, give me a yell back if you find something up in you neck of the woods. almost got this thing mechanically ready, just need the trany. i would hate to go to a t5 conversion and have to cut the floor plate. thanks again for the help.
