I have an EL bellhousing for my 4.0L and a T-5 from an '86-'91 V8 Mustang. I'm trying to determine if this transmission will work with the bellhousing.

What is the input shaft length for a T-5 in an EL 4.0L? The shaft length for the T-5 I have is 7.18-inches (182.37mm). The shaft length for T-5s in '94 and later Mustangs is 7.85-inches (199.39mm). I've attached a diagram of a T-5; I'm looking for the "B" dimension on the diagram (from the tip of the input shaft to the case.

Thanks in advance.

I just measured the T5 4.0 6 cyl box (EA-EL series) that I have in the shed and the distance is 167mm. Attached is a chart that I found on another forum that may be of help to you.

Thanks for the attachment Shortshift, that helps a lot.

Mines the one with the "A" bolt pattern and 180mm front shaft length.

I could have a plate made to go between the bellhousing and transmission to place the splines and pilot in the right place, or maybe find the correct front shaft.

Another question. Would the Ford 6 T5 Falcon input shaft swap over into the US V8 T5?

I'm not sure if there are any differences in the matching cluster gears for both boxes. IMO I think it will work. Maybe someone else on here can confirm that.

Depends on the input shaft gear teeth no, and whether it runs a tapered bearing or needle rollers between it and the mainshaft.
