67 Mustang - Automatic to Manual transmission

Post #1 by thestang » Sat May 12, 2018 12:40 pm

I was trying to see if i can swap out my automatic tranny to a manual. How difficult is this and how much would it cost me in total? Where would i get the parts? What would i need?

Just a run down please because my tranny isnt doing to good right now.

You either have to have time OR money a few have both.
The kits are plentiful,but pricey.I did most of mine in junkyards.
Bellhousing from a 74 mustang 2 ,flywheel from a 67 mustang,t5 from a mustang W.C.1990,8" from a 73 maverick,used bellcrank system from a 62 ranchero instead of hydraulic,just had to grind a little on the throwout arm for the larger bearing.
It's taken me 5 yrs to gather this and I don't think I've got$300 in those parts.I haven't installed the 8" yet,but I'll get there.
The worst part was.for me,hanging the pedal and all.I don't fold well anymore.

this may help - I have not watched it.

1st step is a good list. I've added to chero's but this is still not complete:
Bellhousing from a 74 mustang 2, flywheel from a 67 mustang, t5 from a mustang W.C.1990, 8" from a 73 maverick (is a rear end change needed?), used bellcrank system from a 62 ranchero instead of hydraulic (and fork, push rod), just had to grind a little on the throwout arm (may B this is what I mean by “fork”) for the larger bearing.

Plus the ‘peddle assembly’, mani shift linkage, starter change, pressure plate’n clutch, rod, TO bearing, pilot, xxx, xxx

sorry, that's for a 20 - 30 yr newer car...but U saw all the "lill stuff" that needs done (only 1/2 that needed on our more basic, older model).

Look round, utube is so huge now I bet there's the correct vid showin what's at stake.

Y not rebuild (make sure it's needed 1st) the C4 w/some speed components? reverse manual shift body, heavy kevlar bands, etc. It will operate like a mani, probably perform better (cept may not have an 'over drive' gear), no clutch to hassle w/or to rebuild/burn...

is my tranny toast? what shall I do if it is?

Post #14 by chad » Thu Jun 21, 2018 9:49 pm

some use an auto w/overdrive (aod) the linked refference. The bell (bolt on part) needs 2 match ur motor.
The C4 (3 speed) is the least parasitic of the autos that fit ur car ( or of any auto out there).
Selection is (like all automotive Qs) predicated by application (what's ur needs 80% of the driving time).

Again - the Handbook & above tech archive R great sources 4 info.
