I am starting to plan my engine and tranny swap and I need some help. I have a 1987 Mustang GT with a 302HO and AOD transmission but the overdrive is out on my AOD. I want to put a 5 speed in instead of getting my AOD rebuilt and I also have been wanting to put a 351W in it so I figured I'd both at once. For now I just want to get the 351W in it, get it swapped to a 5 speed and get it running but eventually I want to stroke it to a 427. Since I plan on stroking it I think that a TKO 600 would be the best transmission for me. Using this walk through, Ford Mustang: Mustang Tech: Transmission and Drivetrain: AODE to T5 Swap, I put together the best parts list I could on summit and was hoping that you guys could look it over and tell me if I missed anything or if there are incompatible parts. I don't know where to get a clutch pedal at and I am not sure if the throwout bearing and pilot bearing will work with a TKO 600 or if the flywheel is right one. I also don't know what bellhousing bolts to use or what clutch dust shield and flywheel bolts I need. This is the parts list I put together from Summit and just pasted in for the tranny swap. Now on to the engine. I was thinking I would get the engine from something like a F150 or Bronco. I don't know if that's a good idea though because I think I read somewhere that in '94 or '95 the 351 went to a hydraulic cam and that the older blocks are stronger because they have more webbing or something like that. Does anyone have any suggestions on a donor vehicle I can get the motor from?
