a t5 is a manual trans, are you looking for a 5 speed auto? any auto that bolted to the v8 will bolt to the same bell as the 250 as the 302 shares the same bell.

if it's a younger trans, you might need a computer to control it.

:hmmm: There were some Granada's and Monarch's that used a top loader trans 3 sped plus O Drive, so a factory brake & clutch pedal set, and linkage were made.

I'd be on the lookout for anything that vintage that had a manual.. Maveric, Comet, Granada... and if none of those pans out, start examining clutch pedals out of other cars (mostly for pin to pedal distance) if you can get the pedal to hang about the same height off the floor as the brake pedal you should be able to use one of the clutch cable conversion kits to add the 'pull' to the top of the pedal.

The T5 is a great gearbox. i had bolted one up to a 76 2.3L Pinto way back when.
however i was warned by many to be careful with the performance modifications to the engine due the low-ish torque tolerances of the T5.
Don't want to see anyone go through the work just to munch up the gears and be left a great boat anchor :lol:

oh, for what it's worth, the T5 i had came out of a 4cyl Fox Body mustang. not sure if thats a viable option for you

you might want to look at the pedal hanger out of a fox car. you will need to redrill for the different brake booster patern and might need to get creative at the column drop area but would be a possible swap.

$$$ option would be a wilwood or similar triple pedal setup....

I don't know if there are any Granada forums that might be of help?

but bell will either come from a manual trans falcon chassis car and use stock zbar linkage (will need an adaptor plate) or do a cable/hydraulic conversion and use a fox bell or aftermarket bell
Rule: Torque = Fun , Turbo's make Torque

Resurrecting an old thread. Just got a 77 Granada L code 250. Has an auto and want a T5. Any progress on this? The biggest headache looks like clutch actuation. Brake booster is right up against the firewall. Fox body pedal assy/quadrant?

Jack, thanks for the tip. I'll give them a try. Just have to determine hat will fit without too much fabrication.

I looked for a Granada with a manual tranny and there are some available.
Couldn't post the search results though.
