What trans will swap to S-10 60 degree bellhousing

I have a question concerning S-10 tranny swaps. Please forgive this Jeepster owner for crashing your party but I think you are probably the only guys that would know the answer to this right off. I'm considering putting a Caddy Northstar engine into my '71 Jeepster. The engine uses the 60 degree bolt pattern, I could use the TH700r4, but would like to know what manual transmissions will bolt to the S-10 bell with little modification. SM420, SM465, NV4500, or? Thanks in advance.

Yeah, its called a 700R-4. You MAY be able to use a "World-Class" T-5 from a tuned-port V-8 89-92 Camaro with a 60 degree bellhousing. A "world-class" T-5 uses better bearings and HD blocker rings and synchronizers. The Mustang version is rated up to 330ft.lbs. To my knowledge, the T-5 was the only manual trans(T-4 also) behind the 60 degree V-6's. Good luck.

355S10 is right. The only other option would be a Tremec with a 60 degree bellhousing.
