Bell, clutch, trans, crossmember, possibly driveshaft work, pedals, clutch set up either cable or hydraulic, shifter set up, speedo drive set up.

Ford truck 5 speeds would be a miserable and short-lived choice, so you are looking at a TKO or T56.

No you can't take a T5 out of a Mustang and expect it to live in this application.

The Mazda 5 speed would have OK ratios for this application, but probably wouldn't last long. The ZF would probably take the power, but really, you want a granny first gear trans in a sport truck?

Go find one to drive and sample the ratio spread and shift quality before you saddle yourself with one.

A granny gear isn't neccessary in a single cab/short bed 2wd truck with a 351 and 4.10 gears.

You could try to do a toploader 4 speed, but you wont have an overdrive.

I'm just curious as to why the T-5 is no good. What other 5 speed options (stock wise not looking to spend a lot of money)? (I have a 76 F-100)

I agree. A manual would be more fun but your options leave much to be desired.

Your year Ford F-150 came from the factory with either a 3.08 or 3.55 gear ratio. Look at the paper sticker tag on the inside of your door and read us the axle code. Or, crawl underneath your truck and look for a metal tag on a bolt on your differential cover.
