You'll need V8 Aussie cable clutch bellhousing and input shaft, both of which are interchangeable 3 to 4 speed. You might need to buy a whole v8 4 speed just to get those parts off it.

Diff upgrade. Mine went bang after very mild abuse. I put a 308 in wb 3.3 3 on the tree. Used a v8 traumatic from a 253. Got disc brakes with the diff upgrade so that was a bonus. Definitely stops better now. Would recommend. I used a diff/brake setup from a vh sle. It just fits.
