6cyl to 302 questions

building a bronco for a customer. havent done too many 3 sp on the columns(usually autos or 5 speed, and np435) but the customer wanted to swap the stock 6cylinder for a 302, but retained the column shift. The motor is getting rebuilt now, Ive already grabbed a mid plate, v8 trans/adapter, and getting the bell housing/shift fork tomorrow.

curious if the shift rods and levers from from 6cyl trans would work with the v8 trans? Ive already loosely installed the new frame mounts for the motor on the frame. waiting to test fit the v8,trans,and tcase before burning the mounts in.

also curious if the stock equalizer bar for the 6cyl would work...i think it should tho. anyway thanks for the help

Shift rods from the column to the transmission are different between 6-cyl and V8.

'When my Bronco is finished' is only a hypothetical statement.

That's what I was afraid of, are the shift levers the same? Thanks

I say yes. I have both, and that looks to me they would interchange

If you’re talking about the clutch pivot assembly on the frame rail that is different for V8 as well. You’ll also need the bell crank assembly vs the accelerator cable that the six uses
