Decided to piss off the GM crowd and put a 302 in my 37 Chevy p/u that presently has a 235 and T-5,I would like to retain the T-5 so are there any aftermarket bellhousings with multiple trans bolt patterns or would be easier to get a Mustang T-5 and use the S10 tail housing. If I remember correctly the Mustang T-5 has a different trans bolt pattern then the older Ford trans and would have to use a Mustang bellhousing which I would rather not do since I think it was made for a cable clutch and I want to retain the 37s original clutch pedal with its very simple linkage. I know adapters are made for the older bellhousings but it will shove the trans towards the seat more so maybe time for a C-4.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

Yes but probably the least of my troubles trying to use that trans,I want to keep a manual trans in this truck and could use a 80s truck 3 speed with o/d trans but do not like the ratio spread between second and third. Its like going for second to fourth and would need a steeper gear then the 3.55 the truck has but would be the easiest swap and I do know where I can get one cheap.

Not cheap, but this may be a easier option.

Why not use a Mustang T5 (easy and cheap) and use a hydraulic throw out bearing?

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

If I can use the original pedals its a very simple linkage and hydraulic would add more clutter under the floor.
