For 300 dollars you can get an adapter plate to mate up to a ZF5 and with some fab work, you will have a good setup. I would advise against an AOD, there none too strong.

Here's my short-shaft TKO-500 mated to a 360FE.. no adapter plate required if you tell Bruce or Paul at Modern Driveline what you're doing.

EZ... even uses the mechanical linkage. If going from a T-18 or NP-435 on a long bed, get the coupling shaft from a C6-equipped FE/long bed and its length is spot-on. Lastly, the trans mount moves back one inch... just drill a coupla new holes. ..Five speeds. Glory.

Hio, a TKO is kind of long to stuff between the bell housing and a transfer case, unless you got a crew. You would have to run a divorced case, and it has sucky car ratios which are no good for a 4wd.

Bendtsen's has an FE to a SBF manual trans adapter for $1050, but I don't know if it would work for the ZF-5 integral bell housing.

Do you know what model transmission is would be

I would go with a Ranger Overdrive if you like the feel of an old truck transmission.

Old post, yes I know. I would do a Ranger in an instant if I could afford one. And the best part is they work with 4WD also, even in 4WD. A buddy has one in a 69 F350, it's the best thing he's done to his truck!

HIO Silver did you use a hydraulic assist clutch? What clutch/flywheel did you use?

I see a clutch fork sticking out of the bellhousing. So it's mechanical.

My '85 E150 with a 300 and the iron, side shifted 4 speed OD used an external slave with a fork sticking out of the bell.

Just because someone stuck a fork in it doesn't mean it's not a juice clutch.

That's true. However I see no point on that bellhousing to mount an external slave cylinder.
