guys, I'm a bit confused, and those that know these transmissions may have an answer for me.

I've picked up a couple of these over the last year or so, both out of v-6 cars, and picked up a couple of bellhousings out of v-8 cars. I went to mount the trans on bellhousing a couple days ago, and the patterns don't match up...
the bell housings both are part # 14075723, and several fleabay listings show they are for the t-5 v8 application. do the v6 equipped T-5's have a different body where it mounts tho the bellhousing, or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance,
Darin

thanks for the quick replies! GP, that's an interesting idea... will have to look into possibly making something like that...

do you guys know if all the internals are the same (bearing sizes,etc...)? maybe pick up a main case and swap the internals and input shaft?

the rebuild kits for the WC are the same for the GM and Ford 1985 and up versions.I thik I have a WC V8 main housing hanging around someplace but the shipping would be a killer.

both mine are 94 and 95. thanks for the offer, but think you're right. could maybe find one cheaper than the cost of shipping and possible fees...

this may help...a munci bellhousing will make the transmission sit straight instead of the 17 degree angle. The muncie bell housing has no bracket for the slave cylinder so I run the Mcleod throw out bearing

Wouldn't an early C4 hydro clutch bellhousing work? Thought they had a slave cylinder mount on them. I'd even suggest a'85-'87 square body 6 cylinder if they used the 153 tooth fly wheel or the V8 with the 168 tooth flywheel.

that is an interesting question, there is adapter brackets that I could have used or fabricated my own to use the slave cylinder but I opted to go with a hydraulic throw out bearing
