LATE MODEL MUSTANG CONVERSIONS
a 4 speed toploader in your 1979 to 1993 Mustang or Capri
can be done by using a McLeod bellhousing. You can use your
stock clutch cable, throwout bearing, clutch fork, clutch
and flywheel. You must change the pilot bearing to a bronze
bushing. We have all the parts needed for this conversion.
The best Toploaders for this application
- 1966 & newer Fairlane,
- 1966-67 Falcon
- 1965-73 Mustang
- 1967-73 Cougar
These are all
24" length, 28 spline output shaft, 1-1/16" diameter
input shaft, 8 hole case transmissions.
for one of these transmissions, be sure to look for a wide
ratio unit. See Torque
Specs and Gear Ratios for information
regarding how to determine ratio.
For a shifter
we recommend the Hurst Competition Plus. This shifter only
requires one modification to the handle for this application.
The curved part of the handle has to be removed and the handle
re-welded. The weld on the handle ends up under the shifter
boot. The shifter will not interfere with the stock floor
board, shifter boot, carpet, or console. This sounds complicated,
but it is very simple and results in a very clean conversion.
When this conversion
is complete, you will have a much more durable and longer
lasting transmission that will look like the factory installed
