well our auto to standard trans swap has hit another road block...we are trying to locate the correct shifter rods but have realized there are many different styles of tail shafts so the one we are putting in our 80 Dodge 1/2 ton has number pp8332859 and c-13546 b on the trans and c-9953 as well as ss on the tail shaft, it should be an a833od, dose anyone know what it came from or better yet what the correct part numbers should be for the 1st-2nd, 3rd-4th, and reverse rods?, also any tips on where to find some, I thought I would try some trans shops tomorrow, thanks

You may find it easiest to work with an aftermarket shifter, which should have adjustable rods with it. I do know the od trans has the aluminum case, and was built after about 1974ish, during the gas crunch around then.

There is a whole lot of information here that should help, I scanned it and it tells differences for identification.

That's what I was thinking as far as shifter goes. Might even be able to find some now that the trans is identified. At least now you should be able to find internet pictures to get an idea what you are looking for. I found the article to be pretty informative after reading more of it.
