Looking for tranny

Hello...i'm looking for a Mazda tranny for my 1988 300cid F150 4x4, or a 4 speed without overdrive to bolt on. Anybody have one laying about as a coffee table they'd like to get rid of?

Unhappy

I know where you are comming from, but having been there I sure wouldn't reccomend going with another Mazda P.O.S. I had thier tranny fail in my '86 twice. There was a design flaw with the oil fill plug being cast too low leading to premature failure, but even after fixing that the next one failed too, I came to the conclusion that the Mazda junk wasn't tough enough to handle the power from my 6 banger.
Is your truck a 2wd or 4wd? I would suggest you could use a Tremic T4 or T5 as was used in the Mustang & the AMC Jeep CJ's feom '80 to '86, another option would be a T176 that was used in '80 & '81 CJ's with the 304v8.
Check with Ken @ Jeep Stuff in Calgary, he can likely set you up with something more worth having than that Mazda junk.
I have always been a Ford lover, but when Ford hopped into bed with Mazda & I had those tranny troubles I almost gave up on Ford completely. Sure glad I didn't give up because I love my F350.

I have every thing you need to swap to the four speed. All you need find is the adapter to go from the 2wd tranny to the transfercase. Let me know if you want it. Bellhousing, slave cylinder, everything.
