Question how to tell the difference between a t5 v8 and t5 4cyl

hi to all. i'm going to get a transmission tomarrow and i want to make sure that its a real one from a v8 and not a 4cyl. how could i tell the difference? can somebody give me the size of both input shafts? i also want to know.....the guy told me it was originally out of a 83 5.0 are them trannys any good? before buying it is there anyway i can tell if the tranny is good without taking it apart? thanks to all.

Yep, either site has good info. Lots of times the tag is "miss-placed". First chart also tells you the torque rating which can vary from 265 to 300 for the stock factory units, up to 325 for Ford aftermarket. Happy hunting!

No small metal tag on top? That's what is really needed. You can narrow it down by the chart posted earlier if it's for a 4 cyl or V-8 (input shaft length and diameter). Those numbers you posted are just the casting numbers that would have been used in many applications.
