Can I put an automatic transmision from a V10 in my 5.9 V8?

Asked by Feb 05, 2013 at 10:06 PM about the 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 Laramie SLT Extended Cab LB 4WD

Question type: General

Is the bellhousing or the torque converter the same or are they different?

1 Answer

365

Totally different. The V10 and the Cummins diesel share the same bellhousing pattern and can be interchanged but the A518 transmission behind your 5.9 is a small block only bolt pattern.
