I'm redoing my 1951 and putting in a 292. Wound up building the motor up so the T5 is not gonna work. I have a cross-member from a 1954, V8 Truck Bell housing form a 1967, and a NWC T5 from an 89ish S10. The T5 already had the tag missing when I got it, but it does have a VSS, not a mechanical speedo drive. Willing to sell all or parts, just thought I'd see if someone was searching for this stuff since it took me a while to find it all. If nobody is interested I'll post it on Craigslist, but I'd rather see it go to a fellow Stovebolter. I've got $500 in everything. I'm located in southern Missouri, I can arrange shipping or work something out on meeting up. Can send pictures on request. I'm a long time lurker and I know this is my first post. I post build process pictures on Instagram, it's if you want to check it out. Contact me @

Just a tip, Zac, but I think you'll get more interest in the T5 if you can tell folks what the gear ratios are. The AD trucks with a 235 can be made to run exceptionally well with a T5, but only if you pay attention to the final gear ratios in each gear. Example: a 4.03 first and a 3.07 rear end equal a starting line ratio of 12.37. The AD truck when it left the factory had a starting line ratio of 12.08, so with this setup, you're only about 2.5% off and the world is beautiful. Good luck.
