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.
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.
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.
