Default First gen trans.

Hey everyone, let me start off by saying I don't own a Range but keep reading! I own a 1979 Ford Courier which has had a 2.0l Mazda to 2.3l Ford conversion which is all well and good but the previous owner didn't swap the bellhousing or transmission. The end result is I have a few gaps where things don't mate up like they should. Now, my rear main seal gave out drastically and dramatically on my drive across the state and back, as well as the slave cylinder giving out. I figured since I'm going to have to replace the rear main, I might as well swap the trans while I'm at it. The issue currently is there is one Courier at a wrecking yard within driving distance and the trans is blown on it. Long story short, which model years am I looking at for a Toyo Kogyo four or (preferably) five speed trans? If I could get ratios as well that would be awesome. The idea is to use my stock propshaft and speedometer driven gear.

My uncle had an 82 courier converted to the 2.3, it was the toyo 5 spd, same trans was used in the rangers till 88, but used a different throwout bearing system. I'll look in the shop storage room I think there is still a 82 5 spd toyo trans in there, the one with the external slave cyl. Don't know where you are, but might work something out.
