t5 Dana 300

Post #1 by Invectivus » Sun Mar 31, 2013 1:57 am

so, the jeep CJ ran with a t5 and a Dana 300 transfer case, figured I could swap cases with a ford version to get a 250 with a 5speed. Is there a better 4x4 option? Thinking about a ford six option to toss in a scout since I don't want an 8.

Why are wanting the T-5? Is it the over drive? What about the
Jeep t-176 & T-177 4 speeds? They were used in front of the
Dana 300 case as well. They are a derivative of the ford top loader I
Have heard. (they use a shifter rod that comes out of the top cover
And they have a aluminum case as well)
These were mainly used in 1980 and later
When they went to higher axles ratios.

Im sure a 250 six will bolt up to a Small Block Transmission. Assuming thats right, my vote would be a Mazda 5 speed with Transfer case. Out of a F150/250, Bronco 4x4 87-96? Sure would be easy (and cheaper) to find a good one. I dont care much for the Gear spacing, but prob. not to faroff a T-5. The Mazda has a slightly higher torque rating too.

sorry, yes, I want a 5 speed for OD, I know the t5 works, and the Tcase has the same 2/4, high/low shifters which will keep controls looking stock.

I'll peek at the Jeep and Mazda too, see what it looks like for fitment and controls. It won't be a real trail truck or crawler, but it might do some light duty in case of emergencies. Most will be civilization driving and a little pulling of a teardrop sleeping trailer.

Ah yes, keeping the look is good. Is the Danna 300 a divorced unit? If so, maybe the Mazda 5 speed from a 2 wd Truck might work ? I have a 2wd Mazda Trans. out of an 89 F 150. Can take some measurments off of, if ya need. This makes me wanna do up a Scout too! :D
