This is the same set-up i am going to run. You will need a SAE #3 bellhousing and as far as i know a clutch set-up from a F-750 will work as well. Here is a link of a guy that put a 3053a behind his cummins in his 1 ton dodge truck.

Here is another link from JP magazine of them installing a 3053a in a 715 behind a SBC, they also have most of the part numbers from NAPA that you will need.

This guy has 3053a's that are take out's for $350. He can also get you a flywheel and clutches. He will assist on shipping as well. jepcolwell@aol.com

Good luck and let me know how it goes, i purchased a 96 6bt a few months ago for mine and have found a guy very close to my house that recently won a GL auction with many 3053a's in it. I am waiting to see if the tranny's he has won are any good. A guy buy the name of SPICERGEAR over on SteelSoldiers has a BBC with a 3053a behind it in a 715 and a guy by the name of M35-TOM on SS is making taller overdrive gearsets for the 3053A, but they are pricey. Around $1,200 for a set.

I was talking about the dodge. The 24 valve in the front and the 12 valve on the back. The 12 valve is out of a '95 and is the new engine for my 715.

Thanks for the links gun512. I guess I also need to look for a larger flywheel and clutch. Or a wrecked big ford or FL70.

A guy on TDR said he has seen several 3053 torn apart by hopped up 5.9s. Anybody else heard of this? I don't plan on going to wild with the 5.9 maybe a #10 plate, but I would like to know this trans will hold up if I do turn the cummins up.
