I don't care if I have to cut floor boards to accomidate shifters and the truck has a body lift so lots of room. What I need is a list of manual trannys that bolt up to my 302. Preferably one that sits higher than my old one. can I take a manual trans out of a big block truck that has a 460? don't want automatics. want tough 4×4 manual trans.

    Ford used a Mazda designed 5 spd in the early 1990's in the 150's and a ZF design in the 250-350's. The ZF is an HD unit that may fit. Just be SURE to get one for the 5.8 liter engine. When you decide on one be sure to also pick up the driveshaft , mount and shifter. You may also may have to change your clutch disc. Sometimes you will have to mix and match parts to get something to work. When this is the case make a notebook and put it in the glove box so you will know what you need if you ever have to replace a part. Sorry to say the 460 has a different bolt pattern and one from a 4wd would also need the transfer case. Also get to know your local auto recycler as he can give you info on what later models will interchange. Another place to check is http://www.car-parts.com
