    Is there a transmission he can pull some other Ford car that is overdrive and will work with his 351. Its a 4wd Bronco if it matters. If you know of a tranny can you please give the model of vehicle it can be pulled from and what years. Thanks.

    he has a 3 spd C4 automatic with a Dana 20 transfer case, Dana 44 front and Ford 9 inch rear axle.

    He can swap an NP435 4 speed. An E40D is going to take a hell of a lot of work. He might try the T5 6spd.


    cliffnotes: lot of work, lot of money.

    And in addition, probably not worth it. Does he use it as a daily driver on a long commute or something?

    its is a daily driver and he drives it alot. His 2nd gear is going out and he needs a tranny anyways so he was looking for OD. 7mpg is owning him.
