T18 identification

I've been having a hard time locating a T18 trans. I found a scrap yard that has an 1985 and a 1986 Ford pick up with 4 speeds, but all the info (from here)I have says the T18's were in trucks up to 1984. The transmissions are still in the trucks and are a little difficult to climb under. Does anyone know what type of trans they might be?
They also had a trans on the ground that looked like a t18 but it didn't have any casting numbers on the driver side only on the passenger side.
Any help would be appreciated

Re: T18 identification

you can feel the deeper thro for 1st and reverse to see if its a granny tranny, BUT it still might be an np435 instead of a T18

you should be able to tell from looking under the hood, especially on an inline 6cyl easy to tell a T18 from teh front or sides this way

Re: T18 identification

They might be T-19's, probably with a 5.10 1st synchronized 1st gear. They are pretty much the same as a T-18 only with the synchro first. The adapter kits are essentially the same, the mainshaft might differ only slighly. 13-09 will signify a T-19 casting number, and 13-01 will signify a T-18. Also, a T-19 will have PTO plates on both sides of the tranny and the T-18 will only be on one side, usually the passenger side on Fords. Hope this helps.

The new process 435 have aluminum shift towers and check the shift tower on the one on the ground they sometimes are marked there too. Hope this helps

Re: T18 identification

both the t-18 and the np435 are good tranny's. just find one that is good and go from there.

Re: T18 identification

Thank you for the help. I will go to the scrap yard again and take a closer look. I do remember the one truck had a I6 in it. Thanks again for the replies.
