    Looking for shop/service manual for 12v71, who might sell them.

    Confirm bellhousing type, clutch pack,

    Fuller 6 speed from a medium duty ford is going behind this, think it uses a number 2 bellhousing.

    Thanks

    Cool idea! Love them buzzin dozen!
    The 6 speed is going to have a rough life, even though it is a light truck. It is going to take some sae size adapters to get it connected to the Detroit. Much easier to run 9,10 or 13 speed.
    You are going to have 1/2 of the engine under the cab btw.
    Keep asking questions.....

    You will WANT a lot more gears than that with a Screamin' Jimmy up front.

    Sounds like an awesome project I think I'd want some more gears behind it too
