Hey guys I have a 68 mustang C4 289 car that i plan to swap a top loader and built SBF (have not picked a motor yet) into. I have been reading a ton on the topic but have had issues getting an answer on the longer tail shaft. I have a HEH-CC wide ratio that would have came in a 65/66 390 Galaxie. Research tells me that i need a longer input shaft as well as a shorter tail shaft but i have also read that there is options to modify the pilot bushing for the shorter input shaft. Is this a good option? Also is there anyway to make the longer tail shaft work while still maintain the correct shifter position without too much trouble?
Thanks for help.

Yes, there is a special pilot bushing to use the short input shaft transmission. I believe there were some long tailshaft housings that had both shifter location bolt patterns.

I'd sell the big block transmission and buy the correct one.
