I need some help so I dont blow money on parts that don't mate up to the original LA360 Engine. I gave this truck to my Grandson and helping him rebuild truck. WANT TO KEEP IT STICK SHIFT, BUT THE HUGE NP 4530 IS TOO BIG AND HEAVY,THERE HAS TO BE A LIGHT WEIGHT NEWER MANUAL TRANS OUT THERE TO BOLT UP TO THIS BLOCK,What should I look for? Dodge Dakota V8 w/ manual, Dodge Ram 1500 w/gas V8 and Stick ???
