Been looking into this for an hour or two, haven't determined one way or the other. Might be possible, doesn't look like anyone has posted about doing it though. Which 4.6l do you have?

This will be dependent on what 4.6L you have. Since there are several 4.6 castings and several bell housing patterns we need more info...

Seems to get deep pretty quick. Looks like the first two runs share a bolt pattern with the Windsor small block. But after that I couldn't find anything concrete and didn't want to read up on the individual variants. VIN number is the most helpful, might could narrow it down by what the 4.6 was in. But without the vin casting numbers seem to be the way to go.

Modulars used transmissions with integral bells. Some bells did bolt on, but from inside iirc. Anyway, nothing "stock" exists. However, you can, possibly with some modification or an added spacer, not sure, bolt one up with a bell made for the TKO transmissions, which used the old Ford Toploader bell to trans pattern, which is what your NP435 should have if it's from a Ford pickup. A bit spendy:

Bellhousing, Quick time, 4.6/5.4L, Ford T-5, 3550/TKO500-600

No mention of the toploader there, but when they talk about the TKO, under product benefits:

TREMEC TKO-500 TCET4615 5-Speed Transmission for Ford

Can be done with a early 4.6 that has the SB pattern. Then you would just need a SB bellhousing from a older truck.

Listen guys this can be done there are adapters to put the NP435 behind the mod but I need to know the 4.6L variant before I can point him to the correct one. So no point in muddying the waters for a question that has an answer , if provided with the proper information..

He either has an early SBF pattern or a mod pattern. SBF = older bell, maybe some mods, bingo. Mod pattern = custom bell, or the adapters you reference. Please provide a link to those. I can't find them. There are only two choices.

What would be the purpose in doing this? Didn't they make a modern manual transmission for these engines?

It is better to pick the path of least resistance sometimes.

There are 4 patterns Early the F1 Casting with the AOD this is standard small block F2 casting W/AODE uses a different starter requires modification to small block style housings to use. F3 which is the later pattern used by 5.4 etc. And the F5/F6 pattern not suitable for RWD applications with out modification.

With out knowing what block he has no information can be provided to help him choose a suitable housing.
