Are you saying a M5R2 may work? Thanks

A M5R2 from a 300, 4.2, or 302 will bolt to your engine, but will probably require a hydraulic clutch conversion.

Hydraulic clutch is not a option. I found a good used identical one to my original for 75.00. Going that route for now,...Thanks

Why? Its a WHOLE lot easier to install and hook everything up compared to the old Manual Linkage transmissions, I know guys who've swapped out the manual linkage transmissions for hydraulic just cause its a more simple operation and less parts to wear out.

I think just the opposite. You are adding a master cylinder and a slave cylinder, and lines with fittings, and those fail all the time. I have never had a manual conventional trans clutch linkage fail, ever. And I am a Old fella with lots of experience with manual trannys.. Have had and seen plenty of those stupid Hydraulic Master and slave cylinders fail. In my opinion Hydraulic clutches are the ones with all the parts to wear out. I think you have it backwards...

I will not even go into the pain in the arse the Hydraulic ones are to bleed if you need to..A manual Linkage is a snap to set the free travel and be done with it. You have to be crazy to put a more complicated system in place. My 94 Isuzu Rodeo has the Hydraulic clutch and I hate it..

I will not even be messing with the clutch at all. I will just pop the driveshaft off, take the four bolts from the tranny and slide the replacement trans in place. Should be a hour or two job at most.. I can swap the Muncie 4 speed out of my 65 Buick in flash..Thanks though.

I hate hydraulic clutches too. You can't adjust the damn things, and on MY truck, the slave is concentric with the throwout bearing - if the slave leaks you have to pull the tranny to replace it.

I may take it apart. I went and picked the new 75.00 one up today and installed it and it shifts great, sounds smooth. I put in a new throwout bearing while the trans was out. Looks like I am back in business.

I was a little weary of the trans coming off Craigslist but you can tell alot about talking to someone. He said it worked great and that was no lie.

He has a really nice 300 six for sale to that the trans came off also.........Thanks
