Yes it will bolt right in but you must transfer the electronics for the fuel injection.

I would fix that one because it would be a big hassle to change over, You would have to change cv joints install shifter and cables. I haven't seen to many 626 with trans leaks but It would be worth it to fix.

I want to change my 4.9 6 cyl to a 302 v8 1990 150 ford

A donor truck is a good idea, but the transmission, bell housing, cross members and transmission mounts will all be the same as long as you dont go from manual to auto or opposite. motor mounts will be different tho. i put a manual trans off of a 94 F-150 with a 300 6-cyl into my 91 bronco with a 351 V8 (5.8L) and used all the mounts and crossmembers off of the 94. only thing is the petal assm was different due to body changes. and the 5.8L also has a 11" clutch **** and the 5.0L and 4.9L both use a 10" disk. the bad thing is you will have a ton of stuff to change like the ECU, and engine harness and and other then the Ypipe and converters the exhaust will work. such a project is not for the faint of heart.
