hello im in need of some info i have a 1986 w150 4x4 that i love i bought the truck new in 87 ,but there is one thing about it that i have never liked and that is its an automatic, the truck needs a new cab but i have a 87 two wheel drive with a perfect cab and that truck is a 4 spd , so i will not have an issue with pedal assembly, so what i need is model numbers for compatible manual trannies, so any information would be greatly appreciated

You need to get a NP 435 transmission. It was used for quite a few years from in the 60's sometime all the way up to 91 i believe.

you have yer choice / you can get the granny first gear NP 435 or the NP 445 which has the tall first gear / the 435 will pull houses off there foundation / the 445 is more of an around town or HI-way type of tranny / that or go with the new style NV4500 or the 5500 or what every it is

the 435 is a good tranny if you do some towing i have one and will swear by it but frist is almost never used its basic ly a 3 speed
also converting to a stick is easy all the things you need are already in the cab on a auto just a little fabing needs to be done you do need to get the cluch peaice like z-bar rod ect
