Nice setup I agree with the others on the adaptability , parts availability ,
and the benefit of being able to hook up a transfer case.

Nice job . Seems easier than the 190 5spd swap. The starter is even in the right place.

How thick is the adapter? looks like 3/8 or 1/2.

As far as the ford part goes how many purists have crossed the line by using a 9" rear axle in their Chevy, Pontiac, AMC, Plymouth Etc ??

As for the fitment issue the motor to trans is the hard part.
The remaining is how good your fabricating and welding skills are plus the size of your tool box, or how many resources you have. ($$, Friends )

Hell I bet you could even stuff that set up into a Daewoo hatchback , wait a 4x4 Daewoo hatchback.

America (pronounced uh-mur-ka) was defined by its inventors and the spirit of repurposing one thing into another. I don't care one whit what someone does with their stuff, as long as it's not just for simple destruction, i.e., put a low mileage diesel in a car for a demolition derby. But to take a good engine and put it in a good truck body and use both every day, that's what makes this country great.

I have it all fitted up now, but I don't have my workspace anymore. I need to put an addition on a shed here to turn it into a garage so I can work this winter. After eight months of no work, though, I didn't have the funds to put that up before it snowed, and it's snowing today. So, it'll be a lot more work now but just something I'll have to put my head down and do.
I have the tools needed to do this sort of work, at least the prototype phase. I'm going to turn the adapter over to my workplace once I am able to make sure it's perfect so they can program it into the laser cutter. That will save me quite a bit of work vs torch cutting and grinding, but because it's only accurate to .010" I'll still do the holes myself.

My EFI'd Monty ate three of these KM145 5 speeds before I finally gave up.
Teeth sheared right off the layshaft at high speed/torque.
Common failure mode.

FWIW. The Mazda tranny has a better rep.

It snowed here the last two days in a row, and is supposed to snow the rest of the week. Looks like I am shut down for the winter now.
