T-56 swap

A local friend called me and asked me if I wanted to buy a T-56 from him, since he knew I was looking for a Manual Trans. He said the tailhousing was cracked and he has all the parts to fix it (its in pieces right now). He said he'd sell it for 600. Is this a good deal AND is there a kit to put this in a 1966 mustang?

If it gets put back together with no problems then yes it's a good price

Problem with that is, it's gonna go up in price. He said I could buy as is and put it together, or let him do it and pay more. I'd rather do it myself. I'm still wondering if there's a conversion kit for it to fit in a 1st gen mustang.

Then I would try to do it yourself. And I'm not sure. I bet there is though. Have you tried to research it?

I also did some research. Can't fit a T-56 in an early mustang without modding the tunnel so it's a no-go for me.

If by modding you mean possibly just notching the hole out yes. Some have even done it without notching thw shifter opwning in the tunnel. Check out mustangs plus, they do make a bell housing obviously for sbf. You can also just go to tremecs website and I think they sell a kit or package for adapting to classic mustangs if I remember correctly

The transmission is too large for the tunnel. Easiest way to fix that is lower the engine/transmission but I don't want to go that way. I'm just gonna buy a T5 and upgrade the shafts and gears to higher torque limits.

They sell a crosssmember for thw t56 in the first gens that already accounts for the height change and it clears thw tunnel. Good luck with thw t5 itll definitely be cheaper and gearing will be a lot easier to match to you application
