OK, I have the 5.0 engine and correct bell housing and pilot bushing to install the t176. The only two things left are the hydraulic pedal setup and cutting 5/8 of an inch off the tip of the t176 tranny. But I really don't want to do that. I was looking around for a T18 or T19 but then I would have to pay for the conversion to the transfer case. I saw this add locally and think it might work-

For a Scout II a complete conversion from automatic to manual w/ the best rock crawler tranny ( T19 tranny is fully synchronized granny gear (1st ) ......and a 30% over drive in high gear also includes all pedals linkage driveshafts and a dana 20 transfer case

So in theory I could use the T19 and it already has the matting to my transfer case without the conversion? Then I could sell my rebuilt t176.

I never heard/knew that a T19 (or any 4 speed) had an option for 4th being an overdrive.

My first 67 Mustang had a transplant toploader 3 speed overdrive (4th was overdrive). I asked him if the T19 was rebuilt that way since he told me it was a fresh rebuild.

Rusty, no more... New floors welded in and entire inside of the tub media blasted. Made a barrier in the garage that worked great. Already started sanding the exterior. Going to Por15 the inside tub once we get nicer weather.

You can do a lot in plastic shacks!

Ok I have the 94 Mustang 5.0 Cobra engine installed to the rebuilt M5R2 to the Dana300. It's gonna have a short rear driveshaf I still need to purchase the block hugger headers because I don't believe the stock exhaust will clear the frame rails. I have the transmission resting on the original skid plate and will have to modify it to drop the angle a few inches. Plan on test fitting the body today to see where the shifters locate in the tunnel and to see if I will need a one inch body lift. I am so glad I purchased that garage heater.

Pace Setter F150 shorty headers for 90s trucks will work. Probably any brand for those pickups... I ordered "Summit Racing" and they came with a Pace Setter model plate tacked on.
I am guessing you will need to use a hydraulic clutch for the M5R? You may be able to make the stockers work if you get creative with bends.

I bet that transfer case handle will be about mid-thigh position for your passenger. That may take some special bending sprinkled with curse words.
Good progress.

Thanks. I got the Summit Block Huggers and they look like they may fit but are really close to the mini starter. Yes I heated and bent the twin sticks pretty far but still had to cut the floor. I could have modified the sticks to fit but got really lazy.

Scratch all of that- The hugger headers (SUM -G9063) dont fit the passenger side with the MORE mount. Going to try another set.
