Posted 28 April 2011 - 09:34 AM
as it cost alot for a gear ratio swap, i was thinking of droping in a 3 or 4 speed manual transmission with a bull low to solve my problem? i know were i can have a borg warner 4 speed with a bull low with clutch,pedals... for 150$.
what do you guys think?

So, should be no problem to put into your van if you have the parts.
Offhand I don’t recall exactly what trans they were. Should be just about like the 1979 & up Mustang & other Ford products with 4 & 5 speed transmissions. Some have different ratios & there were different strength transmissions. I know ‘79 Mustang V8 had different ratios that the 6 cylinder ones. You wouldn’t want either of those though I’d think.

I thought it was just a general question from someone that wanted to convert from an auto to a stick. Always a good idea. Auto trans suck.
The stick shift trans I saw for a 3rd gen van was removed from the van & disassembled. It was a top loader & the van was a 2 wheel drive, not a 4X4.
I still can’t see how the shifter would interfere with the doghouse or vice-versa. Doesn’t the rear of 3rd gen van’s doghouse end at about right over the bell housing? I know the carb is right under the dash. PIA to work on compared to a 2nd gen once the doghouse is off.
