Ihc used them sometimes behind 345's and 92's in pickups and md trucks. They are longer than a ford shaft making them perfect for a double disc install in a deeper bell. Md 429 bells came in a couple different depths . Can use a deep lakewood can too. The md trannies also came with a fatter output shaft.
thanks for the info. PM replied. I did not know of the cut 3rd gear for t18s that interests me. I have only seen Chevy 465s with them and heard of a couple people running a 465 behind a ford for that reason.
T18s had different ratios from the 19 and the 435, the 435 can have the 3rd gear changed but its not easy or cheap. The 465 is easier and has the big input too. There is also a np 445 which is a close ratio trans and ive used it in a puller to get an 18.45 fast gear for loose tracks
