do you guys think it will be possible for a f motor with a 4 speed transmission. i want to change my 3 speed tranny to a 4 speed or maybe even a 5 speed. i would like to to stick with a toyota tranny. i am capable of installing the transmission myself. i just bought the truck and the owner said he had just rebuild the motor. i would like to stick with the f motor if possible. i just don't want to waste time going through all the trouble and find out it don't fit. my as well go with the 2f motor with the 4 speed, right?

I am no cruiser expert but I know that you can mate a toyota 4speed to the F motor, I don't know if you need adaptions. Also the 4speed has the same final gear ratio as the 3 speed. So if you are looking for more speed then I would say go with the 5speed, which will mate with your F motor with some adaptions. Hope that helps.

I have a 4 speed from a 74 that was originally mated to an F motor. You won't have any trouble there. Are you planning on using the orginal transfer case as well? If so (help me out here guys) I think only the 74 4 speed will work because of a change in spline count for all the following 4 speeds.

your right about the transition year, but i can't remember if the 74 4 speed had the same splines as ALL 3 speed cases, or if the 74 case had the same spline count as All 4 speed gear boxes, and the same ratio as the 3 speed case.

anyway should be the transfer case that'll need adaption, as all F, 2F, and 3F will accept the same bellhousing and all that crud IIRC
