A while back there was a lister (So. Cal. area I think, have not seen
a post for some time) who dropped an MC into an 88+ 80-90.
Everything was going well until he tried to mate the motor to the
transmission. Apparently, the 80-90 transmission has a different
input shaft than the 4000-5000-100-200. Custom machine work was
required to complete the assembly.
