trany swap

i finally have some time to get my truck running again need to figure my cheaper/better/easier options. my t400 has was slipping and finally crapped. i would like to get a manual in there b/c it seems like the 465 is stronger and cheaper, but would the whole project be cheaper and it seems like it would be alot more work to put one in than to just replace the t400...any thoughts on this?? also anyone have either of these they wanna get rid of in CT area?

The 400 is pretty stout when taken care of, for simplicity I would find another one, they are a dime a dozen around here, unless you really want a 465, then find a similar truck with the 465 and just get all the stuff you need.

Rebuild the 400, it'll be cheaper in the long run. With the 465 conversion you'll have to swap out pedal assy's, cut addtional holes in the floor, redo the drivelines, add a flywheel, buy a clutch assy, etc.
