    A T-86 Case indicates a 6 Bolt Top Cover, Med. Duty; Car V8, Truck Commander Six or Truck V8 Trans., NOT even similar to a Light duty T-96 4 Bolt Top Cover for a Small Champion 170 Six.

    All Standard Duty (Non T-85) Overdrives are marked Borg Warner "R-10", both short tail and long.

    You cannot just BOLT an Overdrive onto a Standard Trans. or Long to short Tail, MANY internal Parts have to be changed including the Main Case.

      All this is getting a bit confusing for me. Let me change my request to state that I would like to buy a T86 E 1A transmission with the original overdrive attached. That way I will know that the two are compatible. I know the trans will bolt onto my 1950 Champion car engine.

        It will bolt on, but it will NOT install in a TRUCK without a TRUCK clutch housing due to MAJOR Engine Mount (Insulators) and Engine Mount Bracket differences making a Car Housing a NO Fit!

        Please carefully READ Post # 10 Again.

          What is the VEHICLE that you have? Is it a car, or is it a truck? That information should eliminate a lot of the confusion from this discussion.

            The vehicle is a 53 2R5 and the engine is a car 1950 Champion. The engine has been in the truck for a few years and I've driven it so I know the bellhousing works. Currently the truck does not have an overdrive unit and I want to convert it to overdrive.

              StudeRich. yes, I do have the truck bellhousing on the engine. I've been driving the truck with the car Champion engine but without OD.

                This is a case where more specifics in the original post would have made subsequent responses make more sense.

                It looks like you need a T-90 truck transmission. It looks like a V-8 car T-86, but it has a different input shaft from the car application and straight cut first gears. The case says T-86 on it.

                Here's some more information/discussion that another poster had on the same subject. Check out the pictures in post 14.

                  I've got a Champion six with OD transmission sitting on the floor in my garage, it came out of a 53 Starlight coupe. The only down side I live in Council Bluffs Ia (adjacent to Omaha NE) not sure where you are in Minnesota. I'd make you a good deal.

                    Since his application is for a truck, the car T-96 that you have will not fit. But somebody else was looking for a Champion six for a car, and maybe the overdrive transmission, too.

                      My apologies for all the confusion. I don't know anything about car vs truck transmissions etc. I am quite certain that I need a T86E-1A trans with an R10 overdrive. Does anyone have that? Thanks!

                        That is what this is. It is a t86e-1a It came out of a 58 truck. It has the truck mounts.

                          If all else fails find a gear venders overdrive unit that bolts to the rear end and use the trans that you have.
