Transmission advice
#21
You bought a column-shifted FMX. The black bracket supports the end of the shift cable from the column. You can swap your current bellhousing onto the new unit without disturbing the transmission internals.

Personally, I'd swap the shift linkage bellcrank from your current correct transmission into the replacement. That way, everything will bolt up and work as the factory intended.

I kind of thought that might the case since most trucks have a column shifter. I know they are different on the C4 and C6, but didn’t really investigate much about the differences in the FMX. I read in another forum that the tail shaft and housings are of different length and that both would need to be swapped to keep the same speedometer gear. Does anyone know if that is accurate? I measured the transmissions and they both seems to be the same length. Both tailshaft housings measure approximately 13 and 1/4 inches.

So the suggestion would be to swap the bell housing and also swap the range selector arm? The range selector arm swap would imply dropping the pan and valve body, correct?
