I'm in the process of installing a 78-79 F250 D-44, using ORU's kit. What they don't tell you is that you're on your own on how to get the shift linkage to work. The linkage extends from the trans to the driver's side frame rail. The rear spring bracket covers the hole where the linkage normally goes. My question to anyone that has done this is, how did you modify the shift linkage or bracket to work?
