Hello all.

I have it in mind to convert my 72 Mach1 302ci 3 speed top loader to a 5 speed and have seen this advert over here in the UK. Will this trans fit my car ?

"Borg Warner 5 spd

(Tremec T5) manual gearbox very soon if anyone is interested..

Its virtually brand new, as its only covered 4000 miles !

Complete with bell housing, shifter etc., Has been mated to a 350 Chevy

Looking for around £800 They retail at over £2k"

1968 Coupe: 393w, TKO-600, Maier Racing springs, Global West suspension, Currie 9in with forged axles, 3.50 gears, Trutrac, Baer brakes front/rear
1973 Mach-1: 351c 4V, C-6, 3.73:1 gears and a long "To Do" list..
I did a5-speed conversion on my '68 coupe. And I'm planning the same swap on my '73 Mach-1. It was actually pretty easy. If that teams has been bored to a Chevy 350, the bolt pattern is probably wrong for a Ford s mall block..


If you can just swap the bell housing, then I would certainly consider it. I used everything from Modern Driveline..

Modern Driveline in Idaho is a good source for info/parts for manual trans swaps. Check their site.
