Default C6 transmission exchange

I have a 78 F250 with a gearvendors behind it. I can't tell from looking at the setup whether this transmission would be a long tailshaft or short. Is this the same as a car transmission as for as interchange? I know there are heavy duty clutch packs and or differences, but only need to know what interchanges easily. Would the shift linkage and shift operation be the same?

Have a great day,
Rich

Shift linkage would depend on whether floor or column shift.

Measure your adapter, if it is about 16" long it is for the standard length C-6 that I have. But I don't know how many different one's are out there. Looking at the web site the short shaft model requires a output shaft change on the trans. http://www.gearvendors.com/aghr3s.html
