1986 d150 trans swap

I'm looking to swap my 727 trans for a manual but I am unsure of what to get. I want to leave the truck as stock as possible so I want a trans that will bolt up to the stock 318 and fit in the trans tunnel. I also dont know all the little odd and ends to set up a manual trans.

your best bet is to find a donor in the wrecking yards. most of them will be a slant six with the a833 od 4 speed. you will need the transmission, pedals, z bar and other linkages. i cant remember if the bellhousing and flywheel from the six will work or not. there are oem style flywheels available at summit and rockauto. not sure when the 1st gens stopped having to different transmission floor humps so i would cut out the sheet metal from the donor truck. 318 OD bellhousings can be found on ebay. this doesnt cover everything but it should get you started. good luck
