66-77 Ford Bronco NV3550 Transmission Swap Kit

This is a REBUILT NV3550 Transmission. The NV 3550 transmission early Bronco conversion kit comes with all the adapters and hardware to install this 5-speed transmission in your 66-77 Classic Ford Bronco.

NV3550 Transmission Swap Kit Includes:
  • REBUILT NV3550 5-Speed Manual Transmission
  • NV3550 to Ford Small Block V8 Bellhousing Adapter
  • NV3550 Transmission to Bronco Dana 20 Transfer Case Adapter
  • 66-77 Ford Bronco NV3550 Custom Crossmember
  • Custom Clutch Disc & Pilot Bearing for NV3550 Bronco Swap
  • Clutch Pilot Tool
NOTE: If your Bronco currently has a 10" Clutch/Flywheel setup, you will need to upgrade to the 11" Clutch/Flywheel kit, available here
The overall length and weight of the NV3550 Transmission is very similar to the stock manual or automatic transmissions so no driveline modifications are required when performing this swap.
The NV 3550 transmission is rated for 300 ft./lbs at 7200 GVW so strength and durability are not an issue. This tranny has a 22% overdrive and a low first gear of 4.01:1 making it an all around perfect match for the 66-77 Ford Bronco. This conversion kit can be shipped through either LTL Truck Freight or FedEx Ground shipping services

NOTE A minimal body lift or minimal floor pan support modification is required to install this transmission. If you have a factory jstyle shifter for your transfer case, it will require HEAVY modification to make it work. To make things easier, you can install a twin stick j shifter, although it will still requite some modification to work properly. T-Style twin sticks will also require minimal modification. A simple bolt in procedure would require a t-style transfer case, mated with out part no 5000 t-case shifter handle which is available here.

Secondary Note: If you are planning on rebuilding your transfer case at the same time as putting in the NV3550, it would be a great time to go to the t-style transfer case due to the ease of installation of the shifter (for those that currently have a j-style t-case).

Watch our 7 part Video Series showing installation of the NV3550 5-Speed Transmission Conversion Kit into an early Ford Bronco

NOTE: Please notate the serial # on your transmission. ALL warranties will require this serial number.

We recommend use of our short throw shifter option on these kits. The standard shift tower is not nearly as tight as we prefer. The short throw shifter handle makes shifting much easier and feels great. You will want to heat and bend the shift handle during installation for a comfortable location.

I bought this kit having replaced the clutch in my Bronco long ago. I had read an article on Bronco Driver about it and thought I could do it. Thanks to the video instructions, and ready help from the Tom's tech help line,(I spoke to the technician who had made the videos) installation was smooth. It was obvious that the people at Tom's really knew this process. Now my Bronco shifts smooth and easy, and I have overdrive. I would recommend this kit to any home wrencher who wants better performance, smooth shifting, and five speeds.
At Tom's Bronco Parts, we strive to ship your orders the same day your order is received.
