A C3 comes with the bellhousing or the trans is worthless, the bell holds the front pump.

The MTX driveshaft fits fine with a C3, mine has that from a FOG and a '80 model wagon.

C3 flexplate can still be found. Trans needs a certain trans mount. Shifters from other models may well work, I used a Mustang II shifter.

When you say other shifters may work well, are you talking about on my manual, or the C3?
