If it's a straight six, it is NOT a 302. Probably a 300. A 302 is a V8

These engines were typically matched up with the Ford 3.03 3-speed,
the NP435 4-speed, and the Warner T-18 and T-19B 4-speeds.
(up to 1986, I believe)

If you can find a transmission that will bolt up to your bell housing that
is heavy duty enough, though, just about any of them will work.
Have a look in the Chilton's or Haynes manual for what transmissions
were matched with the 351M, 400, or 460 in the late 80's and 90's
you can be reasonably sure that they will take the stress of the engine.

The Emergency brake pedal on my 70 has one bolt under the dash. I cant say fore
sure about the other bolts but an emergency brake pedal assembly that I bought
once (don't remember the year ford truck I got it from ) had two bolts that went
through the firewall and then one under the dash. ( BTW it was a direct bolt in
replacement ( had to drill two holes in the firewall ) for the stock one in my
56 F100, you know the ones that when you pull them up, to set the brake, you
knock your knees as you get out!)
