I have a 1983 Mustang with a V6 and a C-4 trans. The trans is junk. I am being offered a trans from a '93 Mustang with a 2,3L I-4. Will this trans bolt up to my engine? My car is carburated, and pre-computer, is this an issue? Finally is this an AOD? Thank you!

If you have transmission problems and you are looking for a high level company to replace your transmission, you are ... Mitsubishi PICK-UP Automatic Transmissions Online (Savannah, Georgia) ... 1989; 1988; 1987; 1986; 1985; 1984; 1983.
1. I'm not certain that you should: I had a transmission linkage problem, and I took my '93 Accord to a transmission place (Cottman's). In the end, those skilled pros really couldn't do anything--they directed me to a Honda dealer, instead! (I was very puzzled!: They couldn't even get to first base.)
2. You see, virtually everything concerning Honda automatic transmissions is proprietary--down to the fluid! You wish to put a junkyard trans in your ancient Honda?: Good luck! It may prove an uphill battle--very difficult.
3. So, you have a clever jack which lifts small transmissions?: You need help--someone who works/worked for Honda, or knows Hondas very well. Info online proves scarce:
4. You may obtain a relevant Honda repair manual from a Honda dealer--you should start with that--given that you're still brave enough for DIY...Hayne's and Chilton's offer no help--it's way beyond their scope....
5. It may be the linkage--not the trans--hope it's the linkage!
speedomter gear on inside transmission it can be replace take bolt out remove clamp then pull out . inspect cable it no bad unhook cable from trans. see if you can turn the cable . if not this it can be in the speedometer it self
You need a donor vehicle, or a good junk yard. You will need an engine from a 95 up V6. You will need the complete engine, wiring harness, ECU, and harness. You will need the radiator and motor mounts, You should go ahead with the transmission swap also, being the 4 cyl.trans will be a bit weak for the v6. Look for the 3.4 v6 if you can find one. This swap from a Camaro is a good choice. The engines from the a Comaro are a bit beefier. What ever car you get your engine from, be sure to get as much wiring and all electronics as you can. Now if you do not have any Emissions problems where you live you will not need the ECU's or the wiring to go with them. You can run a carb engine and the swap will be a lot easier. You can get a manifold from Summit and a carb. and have plenty of power then. Good swapping.
Not without a little adapting. The 1993 has a 4l60e which is electronically controlled and has shift solenoids. If the 83 is an overdrive it is a 700r4 which is the same trans but not electronic. If you put it in the speedo wont work and you will need to install a T.V. cable so the transmission will shift. The 93 won't go forward or backwards?
give me a welder and a set of gas bottles and i will fit anything into whatever you like.but to be honest i do think your biggest problem will be the wiring.want to really hot it up put a jag engine in.but its most likely worth more in its original condition.high compression engine and not subject to having to fit a cat.but you could still fit the manual gearbox though.OK for when your europeon cousins visit as most of us lot in europe especially spain and italy wouldnt know how to drive an auto,they are only for old and disabled people.plus they cost a lot of money extra to have when you buy a vehicle and thats only if you can get it in an auto,very few manufacturers build europeon cars in autos
