Re: T176 - should bolt to a 302 NP correct?
Be careful, the jeep t-176 bolts right up to a small block ford bellhousing, but the input shaft tip of the tranny MAY bottom out in the Ford crankshaft. I had to trim the pilot bearing area of my t-176 input shaft by about 3/8ths of an inch. I did it with a grinder, and then chamfered the tip so it'll slip in easily to the pilot bearing, which, by the way was custom. You need a Ford O.D. bearing with a Jeep I.D. Or use a jeep pilot bearing with a homemade bushing to get the O.D. correct.
