Piston Honda is starting off with a positive reputation.
That's what I was thinking, inside would be pretty much bulletproof!

Steering away from the body for a second, maybe Gary can chime in on this, I have a c6 out of a 89 and I recently picked up a auto column and linkage out of an 83 f150. I want to pull the 4 speed out and put the c6 in. My question is this, if I put the 4 speed in my 78 with a 351m, will the new clutch I bought for the 351w bolt up to the 351 flexplate and is the input shaft for the tranny the same?

EDIT: I meant flywheel not flexplate

Just wanted to chime in and say, awesome job on this truck! Scrolled threw it for about an hour yesterday and I'm loving the progress you're making on the truck.

Here's the page from the catalog. The column to the far right is the clutch plate, and the next one to the left is the disc. I don't see either from the M being the same as the W, although that doesn't mean they won't work. The input shaft should be the same, but something is different.

Looks like the only way to tell is to tear into it and try it
