Is there anywhere on the internet that tells which transmissions were used in which vehicles in specific years? For instance, I want to know what the 1970's chevy pickups used for 4 speed trannys. Also, I have a 1974 Ford pickup with 4 speed, I read in one place that most all fords used T18's but I think maybe mine is a NP435. I don't have any paperwork on my ford. I want a web site that tells me this info. I know Off-Road.com has a lot of tranny info but I want more. Thanks.

I don't know of any place on the internet with that info but i can tell you what I have read in my large library of magazines and books. You can tell if your Ford has a T-18 of NP 435 by the top inspection cover. The T-18 used a steel model whereas the NP used aluminum. A magnet should clear that one right up for you. Now for the Chevy's. From what I have read Chevy used the SM 420 until 72 when they switched to the new body style and then they went with the SM 465. Hope this helps.

Edd, the 70's Chevy pickups used an SM465. If your Ford shifts to the right and forward for reverse, it's a T18. To the right and back would make it a 435, or someone put in a later model T18. The 435 has an alluminum top cover.
