All Ford 6 bolt bellhousings are interchangeable, cleveland/windsor. Input shaft length, and input retainer will dictate if bellhousings will fit either box, good job for someone that knows what they are doing, because slight misalignment will kill the box quick smart.
From memory, I think it is able to be done.

Not worth the trouble, seen it done, better off ordering a Dellow etc bell housing to straight bolt up.

It isn't as easy as drilling out the holes for a swap between BW single rail and toploader.

A mate wasted money and paid someone to weld tags onto a T5 so it could line up with BW single rail bolt holes, there must have been an issue with just drilling out holes, to long ago to remember why he couldn't just drill out the holes.
