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.
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.
