I bought a BW T86/R10 tranny the other from an old hot rodder. Hee sold me the tranny, and a box full of crap that may or may not be useable. This is all slated for my 1955 Ford Customline. I have been reading all the old threads on OD, but most only cover wiring etc. Here's my question, what else has to happen? Does the driveshaft get shortened or is it generally a 1 for 1 swap? Can you bench check the OD portion ? I wanna make sure I am covered before I tear into a perfectly good running car. If I opt for a toggle versus all the sitches etc, is that all I need? Any certain type of toggle required? Is the cable a requirement or optional? I have never owned an OD car in my life, so don't assume I know anything about them. All I know is I need OD in a bad way.
