Default 3.03 transmission questions

Hi all,
I just picked up a 3 speed 3.03 transmission to replace my 2.77 transmission in my 66 inline 6 200.
I do not have much experience or I should say I do not have any experience in transmissions.
My 2.77 is grinding badly and I was told that the synchronizers are probably bad. I read up on the 2.77 and found that it would not be worth fixing, so I picked up the 3.03.
I have no idea what is needed to get this to fit my car. I'm hoping that someone could tell me exactly what I need and where I can get the parts and instructions in how to do it.
I know I should get the 4 or 5 speed but I figured this would be an easier conversion. for the beginner

Locate a 1967-69 Mustang 6 cylinder bellhousing, dust cover, flywheel, starter and clutch fork. It is a direct bolt-up to your 1966 block. Have the flywheel re-surfaced, then purchase a 1966-1969 remanufactured pressure plate and clutch plate, along with a Mustang V8 throwout bearing and pilot bushing/bearing. Here's hoping you got the shifting rods with your tranny. Everything will fit up without issue and will give you a really reliable setup.
Best,
Al

Kit includes:

Pressure plate, Clutch disc, Throwout bearing, Pilot bushing, and alignment tool

And no shifting rods came with tranny.. My existing shift rods won't fit?

Kit contents are all useable. Your present shifing rods will have to be modified to use. Can be done, but look for a set of the correct rods. If you can't find some, I may have a set.
Best,
Al

is this the correct bellhousing? Mustang 6 cyl Bellhousing C7ZA-6394-A 200 cid for T-5 T5 Conversion.

I tried to attach a photo but I couldn't figure out how. As for the shifter rods, would they be the shifter rods off a 67-68?

I really appreciate your help.

Bell housing will be useable; however, try to get the dust cover and the clutch fork. The V8 shift rods are the same for 1965-69 as far as I know, as they all are using the same tranny and shift gates.
