S10 T-5 Shifter location

Post #1 by 62Cometman » Fri Dec 29, 2017 3:58 pm

Those of you gentlemen who have a s10 T-5 in your early body comets & falcons, how is the shifter placement in the vehicle, in regards to possible bench placement? Also does anyone have what the length of a s10 t5 might be? ie from mounting surface to end of tailshaft?

I created a write up on my T5 install on tffn which includes the measurements your looking for. Here's a link: http://www.tffn.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=36195

not really a ford thing, but related to t5 shifter location: I put a s10 2.8 v6 and a t5 in a chevette fifteen years ago. I used the main case from the s10 t5 and the tail stock and output from a chevette t5 to get the shifter in the right spot and use the stock crossmember and drive shaft. The actual shifter used came from a svo mustang (ford parts on a chevy, gasp). There are many different combinations out there, the t5 was in many different cars and small trucks. A search in a salvage yard with a measuring tape....
