    I wonder if you could just flip the lever around, like Carroll Shelby did on the original Cobras?

    Nice! If you could swap to a bellhousing or scatter shield with provision for an external slave cylinder, that would be soooo much better than an internal slave, which is what this bellhousing is set up for.

    Ignorance speaking here. Is this what they call a "toploader?"

    Both are similar in the fact that both have a top cover to the gearcase, to access the innards.

    Ooh, that's no bueno. The 6-banger trans doesn't have the torque capacity, even if you only keep the Cleveland bone stock. You have to at least have a gearbox built for a 5.0L or larger engine. But, you can swap the shift tower/rail housing from that one onto the V8 gearbox, to put the shifter forward more.

    My apologies for busting your bubble, if that is a 4.3L-service trans
